It's got to stop, the price of food has been skyrocketing the past few years and it's killing me because I am such a cheapskate. I used to hit the salad bar at the grocery store at least once a week a few years ago, but at a cost of $4.69 a pound now, it's cheaper to eat a fast food hamburger combo with fries and soda. I went grocery shopping today and missed last weeks sales by one day, so put half of what I planned to buy back on the shelf. Due to fads, what was once the cheapest cuts of meat like skirt steak and pork shoulder steaks have gone from 49 cents per pound for pork shoulder steaks to $6.99 per pound, that's outrageous! I was just speaking to the Evo Child, she's been trying to eat healthy but she said the other day she had to decide between a package of chicken breasts for $9.00 or a box of corn dogs for 69 cents, she had to go with the corn dogs. I'm wondering if other people are changing their eating habits due to the high price of quality food? I know I have. Eating healthy or having a decent number of choices is just getting ridiculous.
