Money.. whats its worth now?

This is what RM250 buys, not even a full cart of groceries, that barely last for two weeks. Used to be able to buy a months supply for around RM300. I was just surprised. Well, not really... more of a realization that each shopping outing cost us around that much now, everything is getting more and more expensive and there is no sign of any salary increase. Something has to give .. and I wonder what can I cut down in order to provide for the family.
Reminds me of my mothers stories of when she carried a basket full of 'banana notes' during the Japanese occupation in order to buy stuff. I know its not that bad, but its also not good!
