I love to talk to people that have quit eating a gluten free diet because I’m curious as to why they stopped. Was it because they didn’t enjoy the food? Was it too much trouble? or something else entirely?

Our conversation earlier in the grocery store earlier this week:
John: “Look babe, they have Udi’s gluten free hot dog buns! Oh my gosh, do you know how long it’s been since I’ve had a hotdog with real bun? Ten years! TEN YEARS! We’re having hotdogs for lunch on Saturday!”
Okay, I guess that wasn’t...

I asked Patti Laurens, author of With or Without Coupons: How To Save 50% or More At The Grocery Store to write a case study of how someone has used With or Without Coupons to save money. Below is a quick story about one of her friend’s first shopping trips after receiving With or Without...

The pork steaks that I saw in the weekly circular turned out to be...
I confessed last week that I’m not a good budget grocery shopper. I am a good cook. That’s why my business is all about cooking….not grocery shopping =)
