Starting with gas, price for everything is high. There are things we can do.
Stop driving around unnecessarily. Finish all your work in 1 trip.
Car pool is big time help. Most of the ppl driving alone and consuming so much gas . Go together and it will be more fun too.
Stop wasting food . Look in your pantry , fridge and you will find so much food. Only buy fresh vegetables, fruits as much as needed or buy little less than needed.
Buy dry beans instead of can . You get more for your bucks and better for us.
Buy local if possible.
Be creative and find ways to save. And even if you can afford , stop wasting food , gas right now. Bring demand down and price will be right again hopefully.
