Struggling has become part of our daily routine. In matter of fact, one of our struggles is maintaining food in the pantry. The cost of food is unbelievable. A gallon of milk cost almost $6. Even with so called weekly savings by the local supermarket, $200 will guarantee only 20 items or less. Buying in quantity has been a life saver, even though it is not easy. Savings has been crossing our minds, even if we need to put away $1 at a time.
Our goal has been put on the side line but we will get it done. Luckily it is only two people to feed, my wife and I and thats it. We do eat the same things, so that puts more savings into our pockets. Minimizing the amount of food for consumption is also a priority. We cannot afford to waste food or money.
Living in Puerto Rico is great but we need to learn how to adjust to inflation of goods and services.
