New Year, New Food Budget

The government, in their infinite wisdom, has decided that food costs have gone down so people don't need to budget as much as before!?!

 The thrifty plan, which did allow $12.31 \day for a family of two people our age, or   $6.15\person \day, now allows $11.91\day or $5.95\person \day.

 That is a drop of 40cents\day or 20 cents\person\day.  It doesn't sound like much, but it does add up.

 For the year, we will be working with $146 less.  That might be make or break for some families.

Remember, for us, this covers groceries and meals out.  But, I always like a good challenge.

Let the games begin.
