Shopping with a grocery list can produce an annual savings of $500 to $1,000 — or more. Making a grocery list that follows a store layout can reduce repeat trips up and down the same aisles, impulse purchases from those aisles and the time required to complete a shopping trip.  Develop a master grocery list by category and aisle of a grocery store that you shop frequently. Every week or two, print and post the list in a central location — such as on the refrigerator door — so that all your family members can add items, as needed to complete the list.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Super-Thrift Market, long a mainstay at the Potomac Shopping Center in Waynesboro's south end, is moving into a vacant grocery store on the east side of town. The move will more than double the store's retail space, a company spokesman said Wednesday. Dave Hocker, spokesman for Fleming Inc., the umbrella company for Jubilee Foods in York, Pa., said the new store will open "in the next several months. " He said he could not give a specific opening date because Fleming officials have yet to sign a lease.

Supermarkets stock thousands of products, yet not everyone is eating well. According to Michael McBurney at Kellogg Co., customers typically make 50 percent or more of their purchases from a list of about 150 products. Other purchases often are impulse buys that can add to the grocery bill unnecessarily. Impulse purchases also increase when shoppers are hungry or shop without a list. A U.S. Census Consumer Expenditure Survey found that, on average, an American family of four spent $5,357 or about 13 percent of their total annual expenditures on food.

Susan was the oldest of two daughters and always was a helper around the house. One of her six brothers remembers her standing on the picnic table as a child to hang laundry on the clothesline because she wasn't tall enough to reach the line.

Agricultural pesticide use has been on the rise, according to a study published late last year by Charles Benbrook, a research professor at the Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources at Washington State University. In light of what the function is, I can't help to think that if pesticides kill little organisms quickly, what do pesticides do to big organisms long term?  It might be negligible in small amounts, but with the steady increases in use since the 1920s due to genetically engineered crops, we have to question what effect these chemicals are having on our physiologies.
