Is it my imagination?

February 28th, 2012 at 01:18 pm

That grocery prices have REALLY gone up? I don't mean just a bit, but like alot! I was shocked when I went to the grocery store on Sunday....this is my usual store for most of our groceries (pantry items) and I just couldn't believe the prices on some of the itmes I regularly buy....they have really jumped!

Add in gas prices these days and it's just crazy!

    I haven't noticed a recent jump. I know that there was a big jump about six months ago and that I finally adjusted my grocery budget to reflect it about three months ago. But I haven't seen another big jump like that since. Maybe you are just noticing it now because you were buying staples? I'm expecting one, though with the gas jump. I filled up last Wednesday at $3.59 and yesterday it was at $3.89 and they keep saying it will head higher. That should translate in about 2 months' time to higher groceries again. If the stores think they can get away with it again. I've simply stopped buying the more expensive meats completely and have dropped some things down. Like I used to have a pot roast every Sunday, but now it is more like every other Sunday or every third Sunday. The kids are mightily sick of chicken and hamburger, but what else are you going to do?

    Lots of little jumps here which added up. Right now only a couple of things for under a $1/lb. I think it is in part the gas prices. The food has to get to your grocery store somehow!
