Living with High Consumer Prices

Noynoy's Labor Day "gift"  to housewives and home keepers

Effective today, May 2, 2011, Shellane LPG gas will cost an additional Php3.00 a kilo increase; effectively Php33.00 per 11kilogram tank. HOMAYGAD! As what my future daughter-in-law jokingly says in her fb posts.

How do we solve a problem like increasing cooking gas prices, Maria?

One time cooking.. prepare what you can in bulk.. rice and viands can be cooked both for lunch and dinner. It's big meals like dinner and lunch that consumes a lot of energy. Out with hot steaming rice and settle for re-heats.

That's what we have been doing for the last year or  so.. so  our  gas tank makes good for 2 months.

But did I forget to mention, there's only two of us?
