Re: Has anyone else noticed food prices rising-already?
It's ridiculous... I spent $14 buying ingredients for a large salad the other week (baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, sliced chicken breast).

The serving sizes of many items are decreasing also. Smaller portions, but same price as before.

Even things like candy bars and soft drinks/beverages are flirting with the $2 mark....

All signs point to inevitable collapse....

Re: Has anyone else noticed food prices rising-already?
I live on the West Coast and I have noticed a dramatic increase in the price of eggs, just in the past week. I was paying about $3.00 for two dozen regular white eggs and the price jumped to $5.00 per two dozen. At one of my favorite groceries they had a printout on the egg case that explained the increase, citing the drought and the rising cost of feed, as well as a large avian flu problem in western Mexico. I came home and tried to search the internet for more info, and couldn't find info on the current situation.

My question to you all, has anyone else noticed their food costs rising...??

Yes - I bought a 28 oz pack of Oscar Mayer Lunch meats (great deal) for subs - at Walmart last week for $6.98 - now it's $8.98. Either that, or they figured they were undercharging for it, not sure. Should have bought two!

Here are some grocery store prices:

$12 - $15 for a t-bone steak ~10 oz
$6 - $7 for 1 lb bacon
$12 - large jar of peanut butter
$57 - 12 pack of Coors Light, 12 pack of Bud and 4 Mike's Hard Lemonade (Bought that combo last weekend)
$1.26 - $1.32 per litre for gasoline
$4 - 1/2 pint blueberries
$4 - for a loaf of bread
$10 - $12 for a pack of smokes

It goes on and on but you get the idea. We are coming into the season of plenty where fresh local produce starts to enter the market. We stock up and can our own goods this time of year because it saves a fortune. Also we buy direct from the farmer. Wonder how long before Agenda 21 catches up to us on that front?

Here is a piss off for ya:

My sister had the property tax on her house jacked by 187%. Why? Because she lives on a lake so the government, which is broke, decided that shore side properties needed to go way the fuck up. She complained and they told her that she should consider herself lucky because some of her neighbors had theirs jacked to 200-250%

As governments become more and more strapped for cash they will look at all possible ways to milk the system.

I bought a bunch of solar lights for $4.50 each. These are the good ones with 3 leds and the four inch solar panel. These usually run $11 to $14.00 People bring them back because they don't know you have to turn them on or because people turn them on in the store and they run down the batts.

Re: Has anyone else noticed food prices rising-already?
Today in the western world whatever we consume in a year it is estimated we throw away the equivalent of 40% of that whether it's the consumer throwing away what we don't consume or the producers discarding it because certain foodstuffs aren't up to scratch although perfectly fit for human consumption. We actually produce or at least have the capabilty to produce enough food in the western world per year to feed the entire world twice over. Drought or no drought this remains the case drought and other circumstances political or otherwise will always play a factor in food prices artificially inflated or inflation due to necessary circumstances. Prices will go up some years but will inevitably come down again, look at the rise and fall in food prices in the 60's 70's and 80's especially the 80's some of the price increases in these years were due to massive droughts some were because because of worldwide political decisions no different to today at all they will come down again, whether it's the environment or a political decision. We survived then and sure we'll be ok now

Re: Has anyone else noticed food prices rising-already?
Its because we keep saving millions of people in famine stricken third world countrys. These countrys cant support themselves but yet they keep breeding like rabbits. It sounds harsh but the real humane thing to do is pull out and let their population drop. This is what happens to other species when they out grow their habitats, their population adjusts to what their sorroundings can support.

We think we are being benevolent and humane by sending aid, but in reality all we are doing is prolonging their grief and making their population grow even more.

These countrys are stripping resources from the rest of the planet, which in turn effects our prices.

Get used to it.
They staged a fake "drought" so that it would cover up the effect on food of printing tons of worthless money.
GAS is also going sky high, only reason manufactured goods
are keeping station is cheap crap from CHINA.
But eventually the effects of inflation will be hard to hide(ten dollars for a loaf of bread)

Walgreens are selling them for 99 cents right now, but yes. I have seen the price of food skyrocket in the past 3 months.

My bills (for 4) went from 275 a month for food/supplies to 450+.


Supplementing now with 99 cent store items (which are not all 99cent anymore), and Big Lots.

My husband is a manager at a grocery store chain in the south. He told me last wk that they were warned egg prices were about to go sky high. He was told it was due to the drought. The chickens were too stressed to lay the eggs.

I laughed and bought an extra dozen eggs just in case. I guess he was right. lol

And to combat the rising feed prices, I pasture my birds for part of the day so I can cut way back on the scratch and the crumbles.

Re: Has anyone else noticed food prices rising-already?
this is nothing new. The shrinking and repackaging of foods to hide inflation is an old tactic. And if things are going on sale or closeout, the next version will be smaller, of lesser quality or completely finished.

This is nothing, wait until the dollar really starts to show its ass...

Re: Has anyone else noticed food prices rising-already?
I find the prices to be just right.

However for those of you having a hard time, maybe your just not making enough money. So even if prices were cheaper you'd still be complaining.

Money is important in society and the way the economic system runs is just as important. But most dont know a thing about either. You cant have inflation if wages dont rise. And thats not happening anytime soon. If anything you'll have your wages cut. Ha.

Further the so called drought has still yielded enough corn to be the third largest in history. Iowa the biggest corn producer is not effected by the drought. Further corn is for pigs. Have a meal meant for humans.
