Bargain For One Shopper A Poor Buy For Another Mildred Walker, consumer information specialist from K-State, pointed out to HDU members at a meeting Wednesday that each shopper makes a good buy. But a good buy for one shopper might not be a good buy for another. The elusive good buy is a relative term. Each person or family has its own set of standards for determining which is best for them. Most shoppers gain experience and knowledge as they shop. The good shopper puts into practice many of the principles of good buymanship. The cost of feeding a family can be excessive if a shopper fails to compare. Miss Walker pointed out that about one-fourth of the food dollar and half the shoopping time goes into meat products, an average of 228 Ib. per person per year. An average of 384 Ib. per person of dairy products, 20Vi Ib. beverages, 447 Ib. fruits and vegetables and 189 Ib. cereal and breads are consumed in this country. "The amount you spend is up to you," the speaker said. "It depends on your family preferances, ages of family members, number of guests served, your income, amount of home production, your own ability in the kitchen and in buying, and the amount of time you have for planning and preparing food. Miss Walker pointed out that having a plan for shopping assures one of having items needed when needed. It saves more time to list items in the order as one passes through the store. A plan can be altered in the store if you find a good bargain that will fit your need. Do you realiez that not all the items on your food bill are food? Other purchases in the grocery cart include magazines, household supplies, cigarettes, tobacco, cosmetics and other items. As a rule larger sizes cost less per pound. For every $20 you spend for food $1.50 to $2 goes for packaging. The "free" ice tea glass, for example, is not free at Church Choir Surprises Mrs. Marcell Choir members of Westminster United Presbyterian Church and their families gave Mrs. R. C. Marcell a surprise birthday party last evening following choir practice. Among the 44 present were Mrs. Marcell's daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Earl S.

(Herald Photo by Lois Smith) all. The convenience of the shaker top adds to the cost of a product. The specialist pointed out that one pays for the convenience of "Mixes." Each shopper should figure the relative cost of partially prepared food with that which she prepares herself in relation to her own time and energy and the preferances of her family. .'«MT*—*•' DO YOU WANT TO REGISTER WITH THE NUMBER ONE GIRL?
