When did everything get so expensive?

  1. A chore indeed for the mini ones. Imagine bringing an eggplant home.

    1. Overwhelming is a perfect word to describe what grocery shopping feels like! Thanks for stopping by, Rachel.

  6. That's what I'm starting to think every time I go grocery shopping! I spent nearly $40 on a block of cheese when I went shopping Friday...it should last us a few weeks, but still...$5 a pound makes a person feel like money isn't quite what it used to be! I wonder if the little people just use credit cards. Carrying enough cash to pay for everything might be quite a load for them.

    1. I know what you mean, Bethany. Things have gotten so expensive! Sometimes I wonder how families cope with all the expenses they have.

      I've never see the little people with money, so it's quite possible that they use credit cards!

  7. Boy, you captured exactly how I feel on Monday mornings when I walk into the grocery store, Martha! All the financial gurus are talking about price deflation in grocery stores and how grocers are struggling ~ but my grocery bill keeps going up and up. I'm not seeing price deflation in my grocery cart.

    1. Neither am I, Louise! I've noticed that the price of many items has risen. I don't know how families manage!
