Actually, our own buying habits may be at fault. Do we watch for "good buys" and then check to sue il they fit in with our individual family needs ? A good buy is usually considered as something that is cheaper today than it was yesterday and will be tomorrow. But what's a good buy for one family may not be a good buy for the next family. Here are some questions to help you judge whether or not you're getting a good buy. 1. Is it food your family likes and will really use ? 2. Is is packaged in a size that fits your family's needs? 3. Do you have a place to store it ? 4. How far do you have to go to get it ? 5. Is it still a quality product ? More information on the Consumer and the Food Market will be coming your way during October. Watcli for it.
