Susan Singleton admits to tearing up whenever she goes to the grocery store.
Instead of lean proteins like fish or chicken, she goes for the meat that’s about to expire because it’s what she can afford.
Instead of brand-name products, she fills her cart with knock-off items or whatever she has coupons for. The mother of three from Columbia worries about what she is feeding her family.
“When I go to the store, I cannot buy healthy. I buy cheap,” Singleton said.
