How grocery shopping more often is saving me money

Grocery shopping more often isn’t a strategy I would have thought to employ in order to save money on food. Most people would advise you to stay out of the stores in order to save money, and I would have agreed. Until…It all started with a broken fridge.Last year, my refrigerator suddenly refused to keep anything cold.

Almost believed him... almost.

If you find evidence that someone's lied, how do you trust anything they say in the future, especially if it's the same subject they lied about in the past?

She asks him later if he ate any for breakfast when he came home and he says no. That all he had was a breakfast burrito....more
