So I was grocery shopping the other day, and nearly screamed when I saw so many price hikes. The biggies are eggs, butter, and meat. Let's start with eggs and butter. I asked a few folks which they would purchase and why?

Kim V.- Eggs, "I can make my own butter"

Steph N.- Eggs, "You can make butter"

Tess G. Butter,  "Ability to use in more recipes"

Gina H.- Butter," Eggs are way too much money"

You get the point. Eggs in 2021 were $1.72 a dozen. In 2022, they were $3.59. Now they are well into $5. $7 for organic. Wow! You can also only buy a limit of two dozen. I don't know about you, but it adds up at the end of the month.

Butter was around $3 last time this year. For the last six months, it's hovering around $4, depending on which brand you like. A few others I will add are meat up 10%. Coffee, soda, cheese, paper goods. The list goes on and on. I comparison shop all the time now.

Grocery shopping can be a chore for me anyways. Buying in bulk is great if you have a big family. It's just my husband, me, and my little dog Duece. Even dog food is up. Deuce is spoiled with canned wet food too. I remember the days of coupons, but who has time for all of that?

The next time you head to the grocery store take a deep breath. Oh and don't forget your own grocery bags, I've forgotten already, and they cost 10 cents now.
