A few months back I found a receipt in my pickup truck from 1989.
The purchase was cantaloupe at .39 cents a pound.
I am not sure what is now but it a lot more than 39 cents.

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??

New vehicles are one of the worst things you can spend your money on......... but our society is brainwashed that they just gotta have a new one every few years. May as well just throw your money in a garbage can and light it on fire.

OP, your observations are right. Everyday prices are getting insane. A person has to get out of the habit of just shopping and getting what they need every payday. We always buy regular use all the time stuff when there are case lot sales on and so we can still get canned soup, etc at close to your old prices.

Regardless of how we each shop, things are just going to keep going up and as the dollar is worth less and less it is going to get really painful.
