Life Ain’t Cheap

One of the many things I was unprepared for when I left the city was how the cost of living in the country.  The rest of the world is under the misconception that the cost of living in South Dakota, or a step beyond that: the country, is cheap.  Those misinformed people could not be farther from the truth.

Today’s shopping list:
butter
eggs
cheese slices
1 pkg sandwich meat
3 boxes of cereal (on sale 3 for $9.99)
Franzia
2 pkg biscuits ( .59/pkg)
Grand Total: $54

Seriously!  I miss $2.50 packages of Oreos, affordable frozen pizzas, and $4.00 12 packs of Diet Coke.

The Displaced City Girl reminds you that the grass ain’t always greener on the other side.  Thank God for the blessings and good deals of today!
