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] Yeah, in some parts of the world (even the good ol' USA) people do not have the financial assets to purchase a new vehicle every few years. [/quote] I wouldn't think they'd have the money to keep it maintained let alone keep it on the road. I'm only asking cause I speak from experience I had a 94' pickup up until mid 2000's and man did that thing cost me a hell of a lot of debt notes to keep on truckin Never beat your beast--ride her gently, she'll go farther. [/quote] and keep her freshly lubed, oil changed often...but now oil is $4 a quart! --used to buy it all day long, brand name oil--QS, Castrol, Pennz--69c a can [/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.
