OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just left the grocery store, and as I was checking out, I just stood there and cried! The check out lady must of thought that I was a frekin' whack job!!

I got nothing.... my cart wasn't even half full, and it came to over $125.00!!

$4.00 for a dozen of freakin' eggs! I think I better go and buy us a damn hen!

$5.00 for a gallon of milk!!! I guess I better add a cow to the list too!!

and the thing that frosted my ass the most..... over a $1.00 for a single roll of freakin' toilet paper!!!! My ass is sweet, but not that damn sweet! I think we will all start using a washcloth, and when we are done with it, rinse it out for the next person in line!!!!

...... and then I realized.... I hadn't even filled up my car yet!!! Yup...... more damn tears!!!

Seriously though..... it is getting bad..... how are prices in your part of the country?? Who else is broke the day after you get paid???

I'm broke the same frickin' day I get paid.

Gas is $3.70 a gallon for regular, milk is $4 a gallon, eggs are $3 a dozen...but you know what gets me? Laundry detergent. It's fucking SOAP. But it still costs your firstborn, unless you're just buying enough for a couple loads; otherwise, good luck finding it for less than ten frickin' bucks a jug!

So, in other words, I feel ya, hopon. Metaphorically speaking, of course.

Yes, It's getting bad all over....Thank goodness it won't be long until my garden begins producing. I do have sympathy for ones that don't have that luxury.

I, myself, was at the store the other day, and after checking out with just the basic "staples" the total was $150.00...although i do tend to buy "in bulk" to save, (24 roll pack of TP, instead of 1) It is still getting to the point where most of us are going to have to go back to "basics" where food is concerned....Sure am glad I planted that corn

(if you don't see the humor in that last statement, let's just say even the shucks and cobs will be put to good use... )

I feel ya Hun!
Went to the grocery last night and just bought a few things ....total $44
Fresh veggies will get you everytime.
Straight has the right idea. Time to do some planting.
Although...I think I'll just keep paying for the TP....cornhusks...nope I don't think so.

Time to start eating Ramen noodles again to try and save money.
Sucks even worse for those of us with kids....
Even buying just store brand stuff....I got a hefty bill.
And I really only purchase the things that are a necessity!!

I better go stand on a corner......

Same here... I've noticed prices on the shelf increase above 50%....

Dont feel bad, I got my property tax bill yesterday and it's $700.00 more than last year.. Even tho my house is worth about 15% less and depreciating in value.

I dont get it.. ........... I'm fuckin' fuming like a mad dog with rabies.


They can stick the stimulus package shit up their damn ass

Well down here in Texas at some stores you can get 2 gallons of milk for $6.00 which is pretty cheap and the same stores have those sales where you can get 10 items for $10.00 and you don't have to just get ten of the same items. But I still go to the Super Wal-Mart to get most of my stuff cause it's still alot cheaper than the local grociers. Gas is about $3.53. Ohhhh but get this, I was driving down an area of North Dallas where sports stars & rich people live and the gas in their area was 6-7 cents cheaper then an regular average neighborhood. Go figure

I have a knack for shopping. Often times I seem to be in the right place at the right time. A few weeks ago I bought a leather jacket for $1.75 because of the discount on the jacket itself, a discount card I had for the store AND the discount that that certain day gave me.

As far as grocery shopping, I shop at this place we have here called the Bargain Barn. It has a lot of close out items or things that are close to the "sell by" date. I have never had any problems with anything I have gotten there and in return have saved some pretty pennies.

I also love liquidation stores where I can get things like 36 rolls of TP for $7.00.

Times are tough. You just have to get creative in your purchasing.

I have a horrible habit of not paying attention to prices when I shop. If I see it and I want it, I buy it. Went food shopping the other day and walked out $375 lighter in my pockets. I try to let my friend's girlfriend go shopping with me since she only lets me buy stuff that's on sale or is a good deal but she wasn't available that day

Hell...I'm broke before I get paid. I've got my pay set up for direct deposit, which basically all my bank is is a place for the money to take a split second breather before going to the mortgage company, phone/net company, cable, gas, utilities, did I mention gas? And geez..I haven't even gotten groceries yet.

I've gotten to the point where I will only buy what is on sale unless I ABSOLUTELY need the item. If I know I'm running low on this or that, plan ahead based on sales.

Otherwise, I do without.

Except for TP.

It sucks real bad here in Michigan as well. Everything is going up in price it's nuts! And now that I am in college full time it zaps my savings faster than I thought. So I have had to really tighten the budget even more. I soon will be finished with school and it will be better. Just keep at it, think and know that there is always someone worse off than you are.

My mother is always complaining about how expensive thing are, When something goes up a nickel she complains.

But things have been skyrocketing so bad, I am shell shocked when I go to the store. And now I sound like her. LOL

I am literally afraid of looking at prices on the shelves of grocery stores.

with the cost of living rising so much, it is time for people to go back to farming. Grow your own veggies, learn how to cook and can them and store them in the cellar. Make your own pickles and jelly's and jams. I can remember my parents haveing a small garden each year and then spend half the summer cooking and canning on the wood stove in the heat of summer. We had a few chickens for eggs and would go to the local cattle farmer to get whole milk. Toilet paper??? What was that. We had the old out house and felt rich because we had a 2 seater. Shit with a friend.lol What we used was the sears wish book and fliers that came in the mail. Yes things are tough brought on by the greedy. Times have changed. But i see us going back to the basics, before TV and video games and back to the days when we lived as much as possible from the land and where neighbor would help neighbors .Are things that bad?? Think back to the days where a big family lived in the wilderness in a 3 room cabin with dirt floors, no insulation and only heat was from a fire place.By the looks, we have advanced our lives so much to the good, that we are going to end up going back in time just to survive.

That is about right but I am very lucky. Within a radius of about three and a half miles of me, there are at least a dozen full size grocery stores including four Mexican, one Viet Namese, one Indian, and one Arab. There are probably 20 dollar stores within that radius. Oh and a Wally World too (I find it to almost always be over priced on groceries, so I never go there).

As a result of the competition and knowledge of the stores, I tend to get things for about a third less than most of you. I also can stock up as there are no kiddos here and I have a 1,500 square foot home including a full pantry for storage.

Now my daughter has to drive 20 miles to Wal-Mart. Poor woman. But they do have an interesting store called Aldi's that is pretty cool and a Dollar General. If you aren't smart in your shopping, you will get raped.

Hell I can remember when a dollar was worth 35 cents. It is probably 16 cents now.

Oh almost forgot. I got two 24 roll packages of Charmin last week for $5.49 each.

Besides the cheap stuff is like wiping with sand paper.

It also results in brown fingernails.
