I drink orange juice every morning with breakfast and sometimes at night too. I like Tropicana. The juice prices are higher, but you gotta close your eyes and put it in the cart. Today I bought some rib eye steaks, and those were a lot more expensive — meat is probably the worst. I just think it’s worse to eat something that you don’t want to eat. I don’t fault anybody that says, well, we’re gonna have franks and beans — if I had to do it, I would do it. You’re going to tell yourself no for 50 cents or a dollar? If it’s the difference between a Ford Focus and a Benz, that’s going to affect your quality of life. But if it’s a dollar, you can get that dollar back in some other area — I waste money on my phone playing games on Google Play.
