Thrifty Plan

I don't feel so bad about how much I've been spending at the grocery store since I visited the USDA website and saw how much they have determined it costs a single person to eat a nutritious diet, at four levels. The "Thrifty Plan" comes in at $35.90 a week, $44.00 for a Low Cost plan, $54.00 for the Moderate Plan and $65.00 for what they call a Liberal Plan. Liberal? Is the USDA making a snide, political swipe here? I'm a liberal, and I'm thrifty. (Well, poor.)
