Okay, it is really starting to sink in just how expensive it is to live in NYC! In Va. Beach I was spending $40-50 per week on groceries, or under $200 for the month. My groceries last month were nearly double that!
I have discovered that I don’t get the same great coupons, and stores don’t run the same great deals. While I have scoured out the best milk, eggs, and meat prices, I am struggling finding the deals and cutting the budget on other items.
I went to Target today because I had a list of needed toiletries and paper products. After three hours and no bargains I was very disappointed. I think the grocery store and drug stores run better sales, and things are definitely marked better!
SO…I thought I would poll my readers. If I can’t use coupons to score the same bargains I am used to, what else can I do to save money? We’re only using the A/C part time, and I don’t have a clothes dryer. Water is included in our rent, and internet is free. Anything else you all do to save money besides use coupons?
Leave me a comment – I’d love to hear it!
