With the price of groceries these days, shoppers are increasingly looking for bargains where they shop.

For some people, inflation has significantly impacted necessities such as groceries, and Americans have to make hard decisions.

Who would have thought we would ever be saying things like:

"Do I skip my power bill this month?"
"Do I put off my car payment?"
"My child needs diapers but I can't afford them. What do I do now?"

These are tough questions and equally hard decisions that folks have to make right now. More than ever, people are needing to stretch their dollars as much as possible when shopping for food.
