She has 12 boxes of Tide at home and I noticed she had 4 or 5 at the Florida condo. When there's a deal on she gets more and I find myself doing that now. I was stunned the other day to note the amount of cat food I've accumulated for example. If he had opposable thumbs and could work a can opener I could drop dead and he'd be good for months. My shortcoming is water and I intend to get a couple of the giant jugs at job 2 and just put them in the storage room. A few bottles of vitamin water on hand aren't going to go far in a crisis.

One need only walk into a Walmart in the USA to see the shocking price difference on things like dairy products, meat, chicken, eggs, etc. I pay 400% more for boneless chicken breasts than my sister or mother do and I feel filthy rich when I can buy 3 or 4 slices of real provolone cheese at essentially a dollar a slice.
