Re: I found an 8+ year old grocery store recipt on the weekend. Wow...
Another way they trick you is to put less of an item in the can/box now at the same or more price. I used a yr or two old recipe the other day and went to get my 10 oz can of crescent rolls that I always use...just to find out that now it is only 8 oz can. So am hoping the recipe turns out ok..but seriously this is f'd up.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25524793

Oh, this is going on all across the board. I get these healthy energy bars from the health food store (not the supermarket junk ones). The bar used to fill up the wrapper. Now when I buy them, you can shake the wrapper and the bar will slide back and forth inside... because it's SMALLER! They kept the same size wrapper and made the bar smaller and it's so obvious because it movess around in the package with all the extra room!!!

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.

Packs of bacon are extremely expensive and hard to find the 16 oz pack, now they are almost all 12 oz.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25524793


For this go to your local meat market and ask the butcher to get you the size and cut you need. It's sometimes cheaper this way (you often pay for packaging and shipping)and if you do this often enough maybe they'll give you an idea of when meat that you want will be on sale. Besides, you can never have enough friends. hf

No ..in fact the companies I have worked for only allow a max of a 4 percent raise..as you are graded on your performance..and noone gets the 4 percent or over..unless you are maybe brand new or really underpaid. They find ways to keep you from getting the 4 %..CAUSE thats just too much..LOL

Im a chef and see the prices our Restaurant pays. Its close to double across the board on everything over the last 4 years.

I occasionally buy chicken wings. They have doubled in the last 3 years.

Chicken thighs which i highly recommend as a delicious and cheap cut of chicken, are even starting to go up.
 Quoting: Dr. Pickle 12313542


I switched from breasts and/or legs to thighs because they taste good, are dark meat like my husband and daughter prefer, (instead of white meat / breast) and they are still very cheap -- somtimes I can get them on sale at Kroger for $.99 a pound.

BTW, Kroger currently has Ground Angus at $3.49 a pound in the Fort Worth Area... come and get it while its still cheap...

What you've shown us is the what I call the "Federal Reserve Tax." This is what happens when the money supply is tripled, as Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanke has done since 2008.

The internationally owned, private, unaudited, gang of thieves tripled the money supply so that the banks could pay their bills.

In actuality, the banks paid their bills by you and me paying higher prices for the same goods and services.

anyone else remember 4 for a dollar pasta box sales ? hell i don't recall last time i seen pasta for less than a dollar.

eat healthy ? I recall a time when veggies about to expire were super cheap and one could freeze them or use them that day. Same with fruits one could make a quick preserve from them and or freeze them as well.

in the past few years it seems , with little hyperbole , the fucking fruits and vegetables are good for the compost pile before you even get them home from the store. they have shit for a shelf life , even with proper food handling/storage habits

Thanks for the double bump.

MacIntosh Apples (3lb bag) $2.99...now $4.99.

Here in Nova Scotia we had an excellant apple growing year. One of the best they ever had. So you tell me why I'm paying $2.00 more per 3lb bag of apples?
 Quoting: Wash


Horrible overall apple season.

They mark up the price to reflect offer/demand, so you can extrapolate that nova scotia apple growers are making a killing this year.

So are some in Quebec. If you go pick em up yourself usually the price isn't that much higher, because of the kids and all.
