The cost of eating in appears to be dropping.

According to the Texas Farm Bureau, prices are falling at the grocery store -- down 3 percent over the past six months.

In just the past three months, the Farm Bureau's Grocery Price Watch list found the price of boneless pork chops dropped 44 cents to $3.04 per pound.

Tomatoes went down 32 cents to $1.36 per pound, and bread dropped 10 cents to $2.20 per 24-ounce loaf.

But some savvy shoppers are seeing even bigger savings.

"I'm a huge price shopper," said Misty Hughes, of Arlington.

Between falling prices and using coupons, the mother of a 15-month-old has been saving between $10 and $15 every week on her grocery bill for the past several months.

"Milk used to be like three bucks," said Hughes, who grabbed some for less than $2 per gallon at a Krogers in Arlington on Tuesday. "We go through using two of these a week ... so that's $2 for every two gallons that we save."

When she checked out, Hughes discovered she spent about $30 less than she did a week before.

"Can't beat that," she said with a smile.
