They don't buy groceries. They count beef as ground beef only, not steak or roast
THIS is why I stock up at Amazon when it hits rock bottom.Campbells soup sale is typically $1 per can, now is 4 cans for $5....apparently that is supposed to be the new 'deal'.
Bacon at Aldi $3.89 for 1 pound, now $4.09
bagged salad was .99, now $1.10
dish detergent was $3.79, now $4.30
knorr's dry soup mix was .99, now $1.39.....it's been a long time since I bought this so I don't know how recent the hike is
munchos chips was $2, now $2.29
I'm good on campbells soup too. I've got several cases of various kinds stocked. I just noticed the price hike.I buy the Campbells "cream of" soups for cooking. I've gotten several cases of 12 in several flavors in the last 3 or 4 months for less than $9 a case (under 75¢ a can). I'm finished buying because now I have enough to last at least a couple years.
I don't buy Knorr's dry soup mixes, but some people do, so in the last month I have posted several flavors for 36¢ to 45¢ each (in lots of 12).
I don't know what brand or size of dish detergent you buy, but I watch the Amazon deals and periodically get Gain or Dawn for cheaper than Walmart.
An executive of Kroger, one of the largest supermarket chains in the United States, warned grocery prices are about to become even higher this year as inflation sets in.

Get ready for even higher prices people.“If we talk of 2022, it is likely that input cost inflation will be higher next year than this year,” Roger said at a Barclays consumer staples conference, reported the Reuters news agency.
“Our strategy is to offset anything we receive through pricing. The idea is to pass it on to the trade and to consumers whenever we receive it,” he said.
2-3%, OK sure. None of the products (except the bacon) mentioned in the earlier thread have gone up so minimally. Typically the manufacturers deal with inflationary issues by decreasing package sizes so regualr Joe public doesn't notice the increase. It's hard to do that with the inflation we are seeing now. Folks who use recipes notice the difference immediately. A 15 oz can of (whatever) reduced to a 12 oz can, makes a huge difference in the recipes. It's a crap show to deal with. The package manipulation drives me nuts!prices are slated to rise an additional 2 to 3 percent over the second half of 2021, Kroger CFO Gary Millerchip said during a call with reporters.

I got a notice today that our Dish Network will increase from:
July $66.49/mo. to
Aug $71.49/mo. to
LOL! Oh HELL no! Not gonna happen. We don't watch TV that much anyways, but I told the dope on the phone to reduce to the bare minimum (which is now $74.99 per month) and I will watch what I want to on the DVR and then they can keep their Dish when I cancel. My system is likely so outdated they won't want to send a box to me to ship it back (which happened 2 years ago), but if they do, I don't care.....they can have it! I have another option to see TV shows and movies (which we don't usually watch) FREE. I will also just hook up an antenna to get locals if hubs wants to watch anything live for FREE. We were paying before just for convenience sake. Local news is just as bad as national news anymore, so I just don't care to watch it anyways.
The rep was arguing with me that things have gone up since 2 years ago when I had a 2 year price guarantee. LOL...not almost 100%! I have rabbit ears for the TV and I know how to use them. I'll miss my DVR, but not to the tune of $136 per month! Friggin crooks make me mad! Still, Hollywood, MSM, etc.......I don't need them, and I'll likely be much happier without them. Maybe after I cancel, I'll get more of my books read too.
Open question...Yep it's just about time for me to pull the bridge between me and town. My neighbor 2 miles up the road is talking about gating and locking our road. I HOPE HE DOES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'd sure hate to trash the bridge seeing as I spent better than a week fixing it in 2018 after all those storms. But I'm about at the end of my rope with the general public....
The neighbor is talking about a gate down his end of the road. He's tired of hunters trashing everything. That's right at 2 miles from me. There are 4 ways in here but only across private property. Only one of which is actually accessible to most pickups or better no car will make it back here. The rest are ATV UTV bike or something like my deuce to get through. They almost qualify as logging roads but they aren't quite that good.Open question...
Your side of the bridge
The other side
I was planning or a steel cable in a k1ll1ng zone.
What think you and why?
What brand? If it's one that I post deals for, I'll have a price record.I got dishsoap today. I noticed the bottle was smaller. As I was putting it away, I looked at the older bottle. It went from a 25 oz bottle to 19oz! That’s a sizable cut, not just like a 2-3 oz cut. I don’t recall the price last time I bought it, but I have a sneaking suspicion it didn’t go down.
Well, darn. Amazon has some GREAT sales on that brand, but I quit posting them a long while back, because nobody buys it. The followers of my deals page don't seem to be very much into natural and organic stuff.Seventh Generation non-scented.
Thanks for looking though. I think it's the only "soap" product I still purchase. All the perfumes is everything anymore get to us.Well, darn.

So the only price histories I have is for Gain and Dawn.
