Sticker Shock ->Grocery Prices

Happy Friday! The clouds are moving out and sunshine is moving in, I dig! The aroma from the coffee container when I popped off the lid was so refreshing. I am enjoying my two cups this morning. When I went to the grocery store the other day, I really got a dose of sticker shock at the food prices on just about everything. I have been reading and watching the news about how food and energy prices have gone up. The price of tomatoes which are a huge favorite were $2.98/lb, Yikes! Don't get me started on the prices for fruits and vegetables. I enjoy eating healthy and plan to continue, but my fave salad and sandwich toppings will be cut a bit smaller to make them go a longer way.

I can only imagine that families are having a tough time with their food budgets given the higher prices at the grocery stores. We all want our families to eat healthy and hopefully the healthier choices can still be put into the shopping cart. As I have mentioned before, if you are able to buy more non-perishable items during your grocery shopping, take them to your nearest food bank so that they can continue to provide food boxes for the needy. I wanted to post this blog topic today since many people grocery shop on the weekend.

Helping others, now that's a good thing!


  1. Milk has gone up, so have eggs... i try to give back in the way of volunteering with Cooking Matters that benefits different needy organizations. I love being able to teach women, children and some men the importance of taking care of their bodies and health.

    B So Chic!

  2. Hi Bren, so nice to learn about ways you are giving back to the community. We all have to find ways to stretch our dollars. Thanks for your comment.
