Cost Cutting

We try to keep our grocery budget to a minimum, but a desire to reduce costs so we can spend more of our budget on travel has me looking to cut expenses again. I was using google to look at grocery budget information, and came across this. I thought it was really interesting. Follow the link to see what people from countries around the world eat in a week.

I guess when I hear that families in x country live on $1 a day, it never sunk in that a family might consist of more than four people.

that was so neat. Thanks for the link. It was very interesting to see how some people had SO much food for one week yet others had hardly anything. it just goes to show that we do not need as much as we think we did.
