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?

    Things are going up all over. We search the flyers that come in the mailbox every Wednesday and then we do have full privileges on Base. But even there, things are climbing but not quite as fast.
