"Do I skip my heating bill this month?" "Do I put off my car payment?" "My child needs diapers but I can't afford them this month. What do I do?" These are all tough questions and decisions that many folks are going through. More than ever people want to be able to stretch their dollar as much as possible when shopping for food.
