and there are factors like large families, group buying and oilfied.
We shop on 15% off day and do pretty much all our shopping for the month on that day. We always have two heaping carts. We very often see two young guys who have been sent into town to do shopping for a camp. They usually have 5 or 6 heaping carts. They aren't shopping for the regular camp meals because there are companies that do that, but the extras. Things for the pop machine and probably some kind of concession. They might be hotshots, too.
My grocery bill came up to $839 (less $15%) and that was pretty much the minimum for what we would need. They wasn't a whole lot for extras or anything like that. There was no meat, either.
