I was a little surprised this week. Made a trip to the grocery store and prices are on the rise. Milk, cheese, eggs, sausage, canned goods, fruit, flour has all gone up. I am sad about this. I haven't seen prices rise so quickly in such a short period of time.
As I sit at my laptop, I am watching (listening)to the news with my husband. You'll never guess what was featured on CBS 42 news? Grocery prices are on the rise. Can you believe it? Nothing is a coincidence.
Per CBS 42, our beef prices are up 11% and eggs are up 11%, price of pork is up and so is pasta. Prices will continue to rise.
Have y'all noticed an increase in prices at the grocery store?
Have you had to make adjustments in your budget? Or has it not effected you?
It does make me sad, but I am trying to look at the situation with my glass half full.
Just think how much we are still saving by cooking at the house.
For the cost of our family, to go out to eat for dinner one time, we could buy 15 lbs. of ground beef Whew!!!!
We enjoy going out to eat as a family or going out with friends but, we just can't do it all the time. It is a treat.
15 pounds of ground beef is alot of meat. (smile)
