I was at the dentist office with Andrew today (no cavities, yay!) and I pulled out a TIME magazine to read while I waited. There was an article in their about the tough economic times, people losing their job and how 17 million American families are hungry. It also said that the average amount families of 4 spend on groceries is $14,000 per year! Are they crazy? That is almost $1200 per month, about 4x more than I spend on groceries. Our whole country seriously needs some budgeting classes.
