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] You need to clean your truck more often I think. [/quote] I hope ya didn't later find the melon... :) [/quote] C'mon people, haven't you ever reached into a pocket behind the seat,or up under the seat and found something that had escaped even the best cleaning job? lol I know I have.. but I know everyone here is just having a good friendly laugh. :) btw a cantaloupe here is $2.49 - $3.49 (sometimes on sale for $1.99, rarely), and earlier I saw mentioned a bag of mandarins were 3 something.. well, here those are $5.98. No, this is not an average store, this is Walmart. Please, no lectures, I know wally is the devil, but have to feed a family of five for $50wk. I remember when thinking .99c lb ground beef was ridiculous.. and that was less than 15yrs ago. [/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.
