I understand it's difficult when eating out or going to a coffee shop in this town because of pricing. However there are many ways to save money if you live here. One plan ahead. Never buy anything here. Almost everything is available online. Groceries,pet food,clothing,etc. Two try to plan shopping trips outta here. Even the one hour trip to Salmon Arm will save you so much. Three dont eat out or go to the places you are complaining about it will save you sooooo much. Make your coffee at home and meet at a park.
