Re: Food/Grocery Doom
We're grilling out tonight so yesterday we went to buy the food, and while I don't usually look at the price, Kroger only had 5 fillet Mignon steaks, we had to go to three different grocery stores...they should have whole fuck'n cows back it the meat department! Are we running out of cattle?

Brief,dont you remember the big beef sales last year because of the drought?

whole herds were being done away with all over the country because of hay prices.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16502009


Yeah, guess that's it...just can't see the demand for meat go down...feed them damn things and keep the steak rolling in!

Re: Food/Grocery Doom
I take a whole chicken, about 3.50, and I cook it all day with spices in a crock pot. It comes out juicy and tender and it's a whole lot cheaper then the roasted pre-cooked ones.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1445528


You are not considering the manpower or energy cost of cooking the chicken at all in your cost analysis.

I'm broke as hell and it is far cheaper to eat out than cook anything that isn't the worst shit you can think of.

I have ADHD and probably rely on a hunter's diet (that's ione theory) and I need meat to feel okay. If I go a week without it I get sicker.

Three double cheeseburgers at 3 bucks beats a box of Hot Pockets at 2 bucks that I have to pay a dollar to cook and clean the ensuing dishes and use my own cleaning supplies to do it.

Re: Food/Grocery Doom
Kind of disturbing to read what you all eat. If you pay more for higher quality food now, you will save on doctor bills later. Who in their right mind eats KFC anymore? It's poison. Are you aware that non-organic chicken contains arsenic?? I would never eat non-rganic arsenic chicken or feed it to my children. Better to go without chicken if you can't afford it or wait for good deals on organic.

I grow my own vegetables and buy only organic eggs, chicken, and meat. Otherwise you're going to end up sick because the rest is all poison.

P.s. cereal is not good for your kids. Avoid grains as much as possible.

A 24 pack of charmin toilet paper WAS $20.99 AT WALMART 2 MONTHS AGO.....NOW ITS $$24.99!!!!!!!!
Bread has gone up from $1.29 a loaf to $2.49 A LOAF!! and my dog LOVES dentastix...for a large pack they were $6.99. In 3 weeks they have jumoed to $11.99!!!! Not kewl......
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 12099754


Jesus wasn't aware of brand-name buying and luxury items that aren't necessary.

Dentastix? Find a fucking twig and wrap dental floss around it if he loves it that much.


Charmin? You deserve to pay that much if you're still wiping your ass with 'cottony soft' and 'incredibly over priced' paper.

Re: Food/Grocery Doom
Food prices are outrageous here too.

$9 for a medium-sized tub of cottage cheese.
$6 for a gallon of milk.
$1.25 for a can of tuna.
$8 for a pound of bacon.
$6 for a bag of Thomas bagels

I've noticed they've started putting the bagels in the freezer, instead of the bread aisle where they used to be, most likely because less people are buying them due to the higher price.

It's the same with meat. Everything's going into the freezers now to keep it from going bad, because it's too expensive for many people to buy anymore.

A rotisserie chicken is cheaper here though. It's $6.

I agree on the freezer, We got a extra fridge, freezer in` the garage, We got our antelope from a hunting trip that the butcher made into spiced sausage, and we store cases of meat from Sams club. Im going to go buy ribs for the summer grilling and the half of smoked salmon , half price that you get elsewhere.

Gotta buy volume and invest in that extra freezer, Its worth it.

Re: Food/Grocery Doom
When I was last at the grocery store, some guy started a conversation with me about a product he saw me put in my cart.

It lead to a discussion of food prices. He said to look around the store. That it used to be full of people with full carts of food, and that now there are a lot less shoppers, and they are not filling their carts anymore.

Now, I realize that many people shop at Walmart instead of other local grocery chains. But what he said was true.

Also, even when stores do a buy one get one free deal, the price is so jacked up that it really isn't much of a savings at all.
