    In case you haven't started your shoping yet.

    I like that she shows a chart at the end with her costs at each location.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    We have something similar at our Kroger. I don't think it's $50..More like $40 or so.

    In the article the woman is comparison shopping for ingredients, not pre-made meals. She gets ingredients for: turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce and crescent rolls, pie and coffee from different stores. Or tries to. My local grocery is offering dinner for 8 for 89.99 and it is turkey, gravy, rolls and 2 sides. Almost twice what she is spending, half the sides and no pie or coffee. For 49.99 you can get dinner for 4, a breast, potatoes, gravy, rolls and 2 small sides. That is the price of convenience.
