If I had to spend $30 per person to have an Easter dinner, I'd be finding a nice restaurant serving an Easter buffet and letting someone else do the cooking and cleaning up! It would cost half as much, at least around here where a buffet can be had for around $15/person for all you want to eat.

I saw a $60 roast yesterday. Um...

yeah.

I managed to spend way less yesterday at the store and they were still having some sales. Turkey was $1.89 per pound and that's not really a sale. Ham was $1.88 per pound for boneless hams (but these are the large ones you can cut in half, freeze and then make one and have that half last two dinners plus sandwiches). They had a lot of great deals on pineapple, side dishes, ketchup, etc. But in shopping at 7pm the night before, a lot of items were picked over and I didn't get two of the things on my list.

I can't compare it to last year because I don't keep track of those things, but I'd say I spent about $150 on groceries for two weeks. That's $100 less than usual.
