Both of my dear friends thought that saving 50-90% on their groceries had to be complicated. They both have very demanding jobs and families and just felt that they didn't have the time to learn how to do this. Of coarse, you know that they are both going to my next class right...
So is it easy? At first no. It is something new that you are learning. You are changing some habits and organizing yourself a little differently. This learning curve, while extremely beneficial, can feel like extra work. Like other hugely beneficial things, the work is nothing compared to the reward. For some families, it can mean the difference between survival and failure.
It does, however, become extremely easy. I would say give it two months. By then, you will have gotten addicted to the savings, found your personal system, and will be able to know if you prefer paying a lot more.
