Growing up my dad was self employed so many times there was no set pay day. Sometimes he had no work and we went long times with no pay. My grandfather used to go to food auctions (farmers auction as well as dented cans etc) and bring home who knows what.
One time is was a case of eggs, so with an uncle that had a bakery we had lots of day old bread… so french toast it was.
When my kids were growing up I shopped with a list and for the week. I bought to have food for one day beyond payday and basically stick to that now that it is just hubby and I. This way should I not be able to shop for a day or so after he gets paid there is food.
