Canadian Mom Shops in Montana: “Even With the Exchange Rate the U.S. is Way Cheaper!”


One Canadian mom has come up with a way to save several hundred dollars per month. She accomplishes this by leaving Canada, crossing the border, and shopping in the U.S. that is. ‘Brandi’ lives in Roosville (only 15 minutes from the U.S. border) and it only makes sense to leave Canada and shop in the next country over. And even with the cruddy exchange rate this ingenious gal is saving money!

It’s no secret that inflation has been a challenge to families ever since 2021 , leaving many folks scrambling to pay their rent and mortgages and afford the cost of goods they previously purchased at much lower prices.

One sector that saw the greatest spikes was those in the food industry. Unfortunately, the USDA doesn’t see an end to skyrocketing prices any time soon , with the government agency projecting both groceries and food-away-from-home prices continuing to increase into 2024.

This has led many folks to experience sticker shock whenever they enter a grocery store, like this one woman who recorded her husband stepping into a grocery store for the first time in a while, and he simply couldn’t believe how must everything costs .
