... stolen baby formula ...
I hope formula mfgs come back online in full production before the r/w birth ramifications hit.
... stolen baby formula ...
This evening we returned to the $1.25 store and bought Fiji water for $1.25 that was $1.33 in the grocery store, $1.25 for Eternal water that was $5 at the grocery store, my favorite brand of juice in flavors the grocery store doesn't carry like apple cranberry instead of cran-apple for $1.25 instead of $4+, mini tree ornaments we saw at Wally world for $3+ for $1.25.Apples to apples I saved at least $10.
Good reporting Mr Fixer!Eggs went from $1.89 to $3.89 at my local grocery store in one week. This week $4.19 a dozen. And I don't mean the brown shell, spend the days at a ski resort eating gluton free organic food, packed in drop friendly carton eggs kind either. No, the cheap ones that were $0.89 a dozen in 2020.
It's only 35 cents per egg but still that's up to near cigarette prices. But so far no shrink-flation where you get 10 for your 35 cents per egg thing.
Did chickens unionize and demand pay raises? A 3# roaster was $12!! That's not even cut up. And no neckbone/gibletts/gizzards stuffed inside? No those are now sold separately. We did find a 4 pack of drumsticks for $2. Must be non union third world country chicken legs.... so a little lead to go with dinner perhaps? Sigh.
The good news, a 5 pack of Reeses peanut butter cups was $1.29. Now that's reduced in size, single cup, used to be 6 pack for $2.89 and now $3.89 for the 5 pack so I stocked up on those babies. And a pound of fake crab meat was $1.89 from $2.29. Love some fake crab meat.
Wait, Lactaid makes half & half? Where has this been all my life? If it wasn't so miserable outside I'd run out and get some.Good reporting Mr Fixer!
Shoprite, a large food chain in this area is holding the line on the cost of skinless boneless chicken breasts at $1.99 a pound. I was in there a few days ago, and they were bought out, but there was a good supply of boneless thighs at the same price.
I plan to go back today, and expect that they will have restocked. At least I hope so.
They had no Lactaid 1/2 and 1/2 the last couple of times I looked.
Eggs here are also expensive, but plentiful.
Plenty of frozen Pizza
I'm pretty sure that the Lactaid brand is available, but maybe not.Wait, Lactaid makes half & half? Where has this been all my life? If it wasn't so miserable outside I'd run out and get some.
Thanks Poppy! I'm going to look for this.I'm pretty sure that the Lactaid brand is available, but maybe not.

My local grocery has had zero fresh carrots for almost two weeks now. No bunches, no bags, no bags of pre-cut pieces, nothing. Shelf space is filled with celery. Produce workers have no idea why...
Lima beans here. Any size.It seems that the single serving cans of peas & carrots have been a low priority for restocking in my area. I've been looking for them and I've only seen the larger family size cans. Finally found a couple of the smalll cans tonight.
