GAAAAHHHHH! Grocery Store prices are killing me!
Jeeeeebus, I went to the grocery store Saturday. I try to go once every 2 weeks for the main groceries and then pickup extra milk/bread ect. as we run out. Anyhow, after buying what I thought was not too much stuff...the bill rings up over $240! This amount of groceries would have cost me maybe $190/200 a month or so ago.

Am I the only one noticing this????

We should stop paying farmers not to grow food, give them back their damn rights and stop supporting these stupid corporate farms that are raping our wallets and poisoning us with all their additives.

Thing is I didn't buy and beef or chicken? I have tons of it in the freezer already. Everything else...veggies/fruit/cereal, laundry detergent, etc...everything is rising in price, in a BIG way.

I have to buy diapers which have gone up in price by $1.50 a box! Where I live in Ohio...a box of diapers is $21.50...

You are right on have been complaining about that for years.

I only eat meat once a week so really have cut back on the grocery bill. However I do know what you mean about the prices have noticed increases over the last month.

Definitely noticed the pricing too! Not as many sale items, not as much variety, and can't get out of the store for less than $200 for basics for a family of 4 for one week. Used to get by with $130-$150 a week in groceries.

when possible use cloth diapers and plastic pants. You have to do a lot of wash but it makes a big difference, you just have to change the kid more frequently, cuz when they're wet, they're wet. you can still buy diaper pins and it ain't that hard to use, you get used to it.

Apparently. Here the prices are actually down on many things. Milk was almost $5 a gallon a few months ago, now it's advertised at $1.99.

are you getting coupons only from the sunday paper?

Most of the time the coupons are only for name brand items where even if you use the coupon, the item is STILL more expensive than just getting the generic version. Or they make you buy 2 or 3 just to save $.50. So tell me how the HELL you cut out 3/4 of your cost JUST with coupons????

Really?? I use coupons but the ones we get in the paper are mostly useless. A few good ones, but mostly for things we don't use/need.

Is there a good website to print some off? I would be willing to do that. I do use the store card and that save me some. I try and buy sale items and stock up when they are really having a good sale.

Bless you for having used the cloth diapers but I know I won't do it. My son is going to be 2 on the 22nd of this month so hopefully we can get him out of diapers in the next 6 months or so!

Appreciate your advice but cloth diapers aren't for me! rose

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 600833


No, I am not getting coupons from only the Sunday paper. I got about $55 worth of free items straight from the manufacturer. (Go to their website and write them and compliment them on their food.) My store doubles coupons up to 99 cents and the store was having a sale on about 16 items on my list. All those .75 cent coupons that I had doubles to $1.50 off an item. It depends on what you buy and how much comes off. I am on coupon trains that get me coupons that I would not normally have access too. There are coupons that are .55 off one item and that doubles to $1.10. My store card savings alone was $48 off. Oh and remember, I am one of those blood sucking people who gets food stamps. Not really, I mean, the blood sucking part. We just started getting them in December and the coupons doubling, store card and food stamps I only paid $113.50 out of pocket yesterday for $494 in groceries.

 Quoting: Inspiringmind


Food stamps, those don't exactly count as coupons. I knew there had to be a catch, because you can't save that much with coupons alone.

And which store doubles coupons? I wonder if there is one by me...
