[quote:Simple Green:MV8yMDE3NTIzXzMzOTA3NDQzXzlBRkMzNkU=] [quote:Anonymous Coward 24303055:MV8yMDE3NTIzXzMzOTA3MzU4XzgyMjkzRDIy] I mean I read a lot of retarded stuff on GLP and almost never post. But I couldn't help myself this time because this thread was pinned. you've overpaid for nearly everything on that list. This isn't a true comparison. I can buy everything at a cheaper price and I live in Los Angeles-- which is an expensive city. 1 can Campbells Vegetable soup was listed as $0.89 We now pay $2.19 for the same can. < Campbells at my local store was 4 for $5 > http://ralphs.mywebgrocer.com/Circular/RALPHS-209/002092805/Weekly/0/3 Fresh Haddock Fillets were $3.99lb. Now $7.99lb. < this specific type of fish I cannot comment on but I went to an Asian market a week ago and got Salmon (which is a more expensive fish) for $2.99 a lb. 4 litres of Skim Milk was $4.59...now $7.59. < Skim Milk... if you are paying more than $5 bucks for it you need to shop at another place. It is literally on sale for $2.50 (2 Liters) at Pavilions.. > 1 loaf of whole wheat bread was $.99...now $2.99. < This is only the thing that seems to be accurate. However Ralphs ALWAYS have wheat bread for .99 or $1.50. If you go to Trader Joes or some other higher quality stores you'd pay around $2.99 yes > Fresh Green Pepper was $1.99lb...now $3.99lb. <Green Peppers are 2 for $1 right now at Sprouts, it is EVEN cheaper at Mexican markets> Canned tomato juice was $0.99 a can...now $2.29 a can. < I dont buy canned tomato juice but I'm pretty sure I always see them for .99 at nearly any store > I guess what Im trying to say is.. Im not sure what you are trying to prove. If you are sincerely paying these ridiculous prices you need to stop shopping at Whole Foods or Bristol Farms (unless of course you are willing to pay those prices, but you obviously aren't because you are complaining). I hope my post has allowed you to see the REAL prices of today. [/quote] I do all the shopping for my household, and I don't know where you live, but the prices he posted in the OP are almost exactly what I pay for the same products. [/quote]
1st thing I noticed, my wife and I have hardly changed anything about our buying and eating habits.
The 2nd thing I noticed was the crazy incrases we have had in prices.
1 can Campbells Vegetable soup was listed as $0.89
We now pay $2.19 for the same can.
Fresh Haddock Fillets were $3.99lb. Now $7.99lb.
4 litres of Skim Milk was $4.59...now $7.59.
1 loaf of whole wheat bread was $.99...now $2.99.
Fresh Green Pepper was $1.99lb...now $3.99lb.
Canned tomato juice was $0.99 a can...now $2.29 a can.
Obviously there was waaaaay more on the recipt, but I just can't believe the inflation. I'm sure many people have had to stop buying items the are used to buying, and change their life styles a great deal. I have not gotten to that point yet, but I'm feeling the pinch. It sucks.
Changes are needed.
