 h1. Dear readers,
 Liz Crain is [/articles/features/pickling?utmsource=NL080608&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=ArticleOnPickling&utmcampaign=Pickling "making her own pickles these days"] — and as soon as I get my hands on some pickling cukes, I'm going to be doing it, too. Liz doesn't bother canning the pickles; she uses a [/recipes/collections/Contributors/lizcrain/marysspicygarlicdills?utmsource=NL080608&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=PicklingRecipe&utmcampaign=Pickling "quick-pickling method"] and keeps them for months in the refrigerator. My daughter loves pickles, and this seems like a tasty — and economical — way to satisfy her appetite. 

 I've been thinking a lot lately about that question of economy. Food prices are climbing faster than incomes, and many people are curtailing their purchases significantly. At our house, we planted a bigger (but admittedly still small) garden; we eat at home more; and we eat less meat.

 How have your shopping/cooking/eating habits changed lately? (Some people have vowed not to shop at Whole Foods, for instance, although the company is determined to win them back. [/articles/sift/wholefoodsloveitorleaveit?utmsource=NL080608&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=WholeFoodsLoveItOrLeaveIT&utmcampaign=FoodBudgets "Will you go?"]) 

 Savannah Naffziger, our intrepid summer intern, has [/mix/dinnerguest/dosanddontsforeatingwellonabudget?utmsource=NL080608&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=SavannahPost&utmcampaign=FoodBudgets "suggestions of her own"] for eating on a budget; head over and tell us what you've done to maximize your food dollar.
