Was at the supermarket this evening. The price was .89¢ for Reese's Peanut Cups. Won't be buying them for a while. Just as well, don't need them anyway.
Many people facing rising food costs are considering coupons as a way to save money on their grocery bills including myself who uses smart source or Printapons websites to get daily alerts.
The prices in the valley still have a ways to go to equal where we moved from (S.W. Florida) or where we summer (Idaho).
Naw really?,wow! this is a biggee! My cola doesn't think so.Somebody is spoofing us.
The law of supply and demand notwithstanding, it's been my experience that prices (on all things) always rise in the long term....
It almost makes you feel sorry for grocery retailers. They are stuck between rising commodity and manufacturers increasing prices and consumer resistance. As prices increase consumers stop buying many products, buy them less often or switch to a less expensive alternatives, this leaves retailers with grocery products sitting on shelves, followed by reaching expiration code dates, followed by drastic markdowns to clear the products before the expiration code dates.
Since June, the food prices have risen so much in my area, that all of a sudden I’m finding I cannot afford to eat for half the month. I’m not doing anything different, the prices have just plain skyrocketed. I cannot afford fresh fruits and veggies at all now. And the first thing I’ll be doing this week is cutting down my cable tv and phone bill. And hope that helps me to be able to afford to eat again. It’s really getting very scary. Many of us cannot grow our own food. We live in apartment buildings. It leaves us pretty stuck. I hope I won't have to apply for payday advances to buy food.
