I was at the supermarket with my gf this past weekend and remarked at how fast food prices are rising and then saw this article today:
I can`t believe how fast the cost of food is rising! I can`t remember a time when every couple of weeks some necessary item is more expensive. I tend to buy the same foods over and over again but just in the past year (mostly past 6-8months) Ive noticed the following...
Jumbo eggs from 2.69 to 3.69 (+37%)
Gallon of Milk 5.19 to 6.29 (+21%)
Natural PB 3.05 to 3.65 (+20%)
20 slices Borden Single slice wrapped Amer Cheese 4.99 to 5.99 (+20%)
Cottage Cheese 2.69 to 3.89 (+44%)
Edys Ice Cream... 6.29 to 7.29 (16%)
Canned Tuna .89 to 1.49... (+67%) and i NEVER see 2 or 3 for $1 anymore..
Chipotle Burrito at lunch (+8%)
Weirdly enough Whole Foods 365 brand offers some of the best value out there but is a bit of a walk for me. When I was there a couple months ago milk was like $3.69 which is a good deal for NYC... I think I am going to have to start checking out store deals online and not just stop in anywhere anymore..
Anyone else feeling it?
