Plan Shopping by impulse is an ideal way to get poor returns for the money, time and effort spent at the grocery store, food economists of the U. S. Department of Agri culture remind housewives. The “impulse shopper” goes to mar ket without planning menus and shopping list ahead, and when there, tries to remember what she needs or decide what she wants. The result is likely to be forgot ten items and thus return trips to market, mistakes like buying too little or too much, and especial ly purchasing extras which may not be used or high cost luxuries which bulge the budget. The im pulse shopper buys what appeals to her at the moment rather than what her family needs and what fits her pocketbook. A little pencil and paper work at home can save money, time and effort especially at this busy holiday season. A market list in hand rather than in the head makes for efficient and easy shop ping. Make a general plan for menus for a few days ahead, de pend ig on the storage space In the kitchen. Check menus with the basic seven food guide to be sure all essentials for good nu _I trition are included, and then cal culate cost to fit the budget. From these menus write out a list of both hind and quantity of foods needed and other thrifty details, ^uoh as grade or size of items. Most women find that a market list written in ink on a small card is easiest to read and carry. For shopping in a self-service store, save walking back and forth by listing foods in order of their ar rangement in the market. Plan to shop when stores are least crowded and when your store usually stocks its fresh sup plies. Very often the best time is after breakfast. Shoppers who are tired often do not use their best judgment in buying, and those who are hungry may buy too much or too expensive foods. It is often necessary to adjust the market list to what markets °Her- Staples like flour or sugar can be listed definitely, but meats, fish or poultry for the main dish, and vegetables and fruits often need to bp chosen according to supplies and prices. In buying vegetables and fruits, I compare price per serving of fresh, frozen, canned or dried be fore making a selection. In buy ing meat, eggs, and canned goods take advantage of cheaper grades where possible for budget meals. These offer as much nutritive value as higher grades and often are just as good for many cook ing purposes or for mixed dishes. Pork Season The season of the year for fresh pork is with us again and pigs are plentiful. Because of the uniform age of slaughtering and greater uniformity in type of ani mal, there is less variation of quality in pork than any other kind of meat Pork of poor quality is deep and red in color, has little fat, and is soft and flabby. Pork may be sold either fresh or cured. If not used as a fresh meat, it is cured, smoked, rendered into lard or made into sausage. Ham is one of the most impor tant cuts of pork. It is usually cured, smoked and sold for bak ing, frying, or broiling. Fresh or cured hams may be sold as skinned or regular. "Regular” is the ham as cured. "Skinned" has the skin and some fat removed leaving not more than 1% inches of fat. It sells for several cents a pound more-than regular. One pound makes two to three serv ings. Boneless ham is either regular or skinned and costs more be cause the bone has been removed and there is less wastes Tenderized ham is partially or completely cooked. Read the la bel to see if further cooking is necessary. All pork should be thoroughly cooked to avoid the danger of trichonosis. “Tender” hams or hams that are ready for the table use should be kept un der refrigeration from the time they leave the packing plant un til they are eaten, as they tend to spoil if not properly handled. Baked and boiled ham is bone less ham that has been baked or boiled for use as cold cuts.
