WOW!! Grocery Shopping Was Not Fun This Week!!!

We had to go to get some fresh items at the grocery store this week. It was amazing how high everything was. I just got what we needed, some meat, water, a few snacks for the kids and I almost cried. I just cannot believe that food prices have went up that much. I came out of the store with 7 bags (plastic bags) of groceries and a case of water and it was $137.00!!!!!! I can not understand how it could be that high. It is just crazy. We live in a very small town and it is not anywhere near any major high ways so maybe that is one of the reasons it is so high. I did feel like crying. I just wonder how much it would have been if I had REALLY shopped? Luckily we have a stockpile at home of basics to work off of. If the price of meat keeps going up, we are going to become vegetarians. Bad thing about it, is that I did not even buy a lot of meat. It just was high. I looked at some chicken and did not buy any of it. Over $10.00 for a small pack of wings was way too high for me. Now is the best time to grow your own garden.
Bad thing is that our county is now at 12% unemployment. High prices at the grocery store will cause crime to go up here, I am afraid.

Anyone else getting sticker shock when they go grocery shopping????

i buy food storage supplies each month from the lds cannery--luckily i bought all my wheat a couple days before they raised prices--as of april 4th their products went up as well. dried apples and onions went up $12 from their starting price!! i hope our little garden grows this year---its my first time planting.
