    Superstore and Sobeys here (P.E.I.) offer 10% off to students on Tuesdays. You could see if the grocery stores in your area offer anything similar. You will need to show your student ID.

    I actually have no idea where to use that student card other than the thrift shop for 10% off. I'm definitely going to have to look into that on Monday and make some use out of it while I have it!

    I bought my daughter an Instapot for her birthday (it was what she wanted), and she loves it. Says she uses it almost every night, but she does have a large family now.

    I’m a poor teacher, but also on a restricted diet. Rice is cheap and good to interchange with pasta. Dry beans are cheap, and if you can scrounge up a pressure cooker, easy to cook, and they can stretch meats. Canned and frozen veggies are usually less expensive too. I also eat a lot of cabbage. Last night I had a pasta with a sauce of cabbage, garlic, and sardines canned in tomato sauce. I like sardines much better than I thought I would.
