Re: Do you eat less to be thrifty/cut grocery bill?

I will in that if we buy some berries and some pears, I'll eat the pears myself and save the berries for dd since they're more expensive and I don't buy a ton. We can all eat as much fruit as we want, but adults do have to ration themselves a bit with the more expensive ones. We don't eat meat, but if we did, I'd probably do similarly, like only make a small amount and try to let children have most of it and adults focus on cheaper carbs and veg. I couldn't ask anyone to be hungry unless it was literally the only option, though.
