They say that a slice of pizza is the barometer of NYC transit fare. What about a loaf of bread?

I am Forbidden (yes, that’s a capital F) to get bread for Grandma that’s above $2.00. She says that it doesn’t make sense to just give away money.

Often I am lectured about back in the day (Depression) with ration tickets and “Meatless Tuesday”. Gram understands that things costs. However, there are some elders out there that flat out refuse to buy food and medicine, even if it is an essential need?

Are you in a tug of war with prices and buying with an elder? How do you justify your position with their best interest in mind? Let us know in the comments?
