I'm trying to cut back on groceries and use up all the surplus in the pantry (dried beans, rice, packaged crap) but I won't cut back on fresh fruits and veggies. I do have a freezer full of my own peaches, grapes, and blackberries that I processed (not many apples this year!) that I can fall back on if I can't afford groceries now and then. I don't do makeup/hair/nails so that's one less expense, but my one real splurge is Puffs Plus tissues with the lotion in them. I would hate to give up those.
