WNY Things To-Do:



  1. would you happen to have a list of your price points? If so, maybe add it to the library??

    1. I'm actually working on a price points list and once completed I will definitely add it to the library! :-)

    I was actually looking for a price point list just now. Glad to hear your working on one. I know with you doing it, it will be a real price point for our area!! Thanks for all you do!!

    1. Yes, I'm still working on it Elaine. Meat prices have really jumped, along with other groceries so I've got some adjusting to do. :-/ Soon though! :-)
