Blog on saving money and living on a budget in CT.
We did the same thing tonight. I also packed two lunches for my sister for next week. On the taxable -- I'm not familiar with CT's tax rules. Do you not pay tax on food too?
Shara, food is not taxed in CT, unless it is candy, soda or take out/prepared foods.
Here in Ohio we now pay tax on any 'juice' that is not 100% fruit juice. This means the ruby red grapefruit juice at Aldi is taxable but the 100% apple or grape or cranberry is not. I still count it as food & not as a taxable item in my budget.
Nancy, I would agree that juice or juice cocktail if how it has to be classified, is "food." What I consider taxables is anything not eaten such as cleaning products, health and beauty aides, paper goods.
