We honestly quit grocery shopping around the first even though it is when I get my commission check and my wif get's her monthly check for a couple
of reasons. The first is that the major grocer chains and wal-mart know that lots of folks get their EBT money between 1-3rd of the month and raise
prices. If you can hold out to the middle of the month to buy groceries you can save $10-$30 dollars on a months groceries. The second is it really
pisses me off when I see a 19year old with three kids, no wedding ring ( I'll guess that the kids each have different daddies) in front of me in the
checkout line with all brand name items, high priced meats, no coupons, and a lot of attitude. We've gone pretty much all store brand for our
groceries that aren't fresh to be able to afford childcare for my youngest and private school for my oldest.
Just yesterday I stopped by Kroger to get some necessities till the big run. The guy in from of me got buffalo meat, T-Bones and some other meats and
whipped out the EBT card. He had enough gold on him to make a pimp jealous and a watch that a successful used car dealer would envy. I was out the
door right behind him because I only had a couple of items. Guess what kind of car he was driving? Cadillac Escalade.
