The purchase was cantaloupe at .39 cents a pound. I am not sure what is now but it a lot more than 39 cents. [/quote] Not sure what's more shocking the cantelope price/lb. Or that you're driving a 1989 pickup truck, c'mon it's 23 yrs old it must be falling apart?? No?? [/quote] I'm driving an '86 ford e250 work van--234000 miles--had it since new [/quote] New vehicles are one of the worst things you can spend your money on......... but our society is brainwashed that they just gotta have a new one every few years. May as well just throw your money in a garbage can and light it on fire. OP, your observations are right. Everyday prices are getting insane. A person has to get out of the habit of just shopping and getting what they need every payday. We always buy regular use all the time stuff when there are case lot sales on and so we can still get canned soup, etc at close to your old prices. Regardless of how we each shop, things are just going to keep going up and as the dollar is worth less and less it is going to get really painful. [/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.
