For your enjoyment, I scanned and posted a page from the Fearless Flyer, which is always an entertaining read. This month's edition ("The Swimsuit Issue") also highlights really affordable meals like pancakes ($1.99/box for mix, plus cost of four eggs and some water = 4 cents per pancake) and spaghetti with meat sauce:
"Just Spaghetti is $2.49 for a pound of cooked pasta, and Turkey Bolognese is
$2.49 for 12 ounces of hearty sauce. Together, $4.98 for enough food for a
family of four (okay, maybe two, if you have teenaged boys)."
"Things You Don't Need" - ha! How about, grocery stores with high prices and long lines? In a store packed with people, we only waited one minute to be served in the checkout line.
Outside the Westfield store, you can see a happy shopper headed home, and blooming tulips inside the window.
