Sticker Shock at the Grocery Store

I went to the grocery store this evening. I got a gallon of milk, a quart of egg nog, 12 small cans of dog food, a shower curtain, 8 (small) cans of cat food, a small package of sausage links (because bacon was $6.00 and up per lb.), an 8 oz. package of shredded cheese, a lb. and a half of a couple containers of instant coffee ($7.00 total), a couple cans of corn, a small can of olives, and a can of yams.

I nearly fell over when I checked out. The total came to $82 and some cents.

How in the world are people with children able to afford groceries with prices climbing like that?
