I live in Missisippi and our grocery prices are outrageous!  Now I haven't been to the grocery store since the last of December but I had to go this weekend.  BOY, was I  shell shocked!!!  I get a weekly sales paper from the locally owned grocery stores and had been watching the prices steadily go higher and higher.  Saturday night I went to my favorite locally owned grocer(found out they are closing the end of the month, so sad about that) and got ground beef 73/27 for $1.99 a pound and pork roast for $1.49 a pound.  Now those two items I haven't seen that "cheap" in a couple of years.  I went back yesterday, got another huge package of ground beef,  another huge pork roast(hubby took both of the pork roasts and had them sliced into 3 roasts each for us..it's just the two of us unless we have grands over), four large packages of catfish fillets, a b**t portion ham and a package of western style pork ribs.  We also bought a huge rutabaga, some turnip greens and two packages of fish fry batter.  We spent less than $100 there even with us getting all that meat!  I thought that we did pretty good at that store.  Then we went to WalMart and I spent over $130 and didn't get much of anything.  I buy my paper products at Family Dollar Store and I also buy a lot of food items at The Dollar Tree.  They have the sweetener that my husband likes for $1 a box with is much cheaper than anywhere else.  Total, I ended up spending about $275 for groceries.  I make my own laundry detergent and bleach and some of my cleaning supplies.  Milk is our totally out the roof priced item here though.  We have a milk processing plant here, Prairie Farms label, LuVel was the former name of the company and we pay higher prices for milk than people in other states where it is shipped in to them.  I usually buy milk at CVS because they always have it for $3.29 -$3.99 a gallon.  I agree that the higher gas prices are adding to the price of groceries and other items but I also agree with Maryann O that "they are going to be higher when the people in the white house get done."  Sorry so long, but just had to add my two cents to this.  I'll get off my soapbox now.

Grocery prices continue to go up. in AR.  Manufacturer coupons are less plentiful.  Even sale prices can be higher than the regular prices used to be.

GRANA here;
 Prices are up each week; sales offer good deals but the items( varieies we want are usually not available( 'discontinued or "out fs tock the first day ...RAINCHECKS are available wait on line & practically  write it ut yourself , they're good for 30 days & items often don't come in before the rainchecks expire.I've learned to take the  ad & raincheck to TARGET  oR WALMART where  sale prices m other stores are usually honored & buy the item there( after first  calling to confirm  they have it in stock, they usually do.
 I'm convinced our nearby grocery store advertises items to draw customers in &  then deliberately  holds back the more popular  varieties of everything on ad from shampoos to soups.
When I'm tol that the item has been discontinued I  call the  mfr & find out iyis still availabe &  get the UPC # for the store mgr who   sometimes orders it for me to honor the raincheck.The practice of dvertising a sale price on an item no longer available  to lure customers in is called"BAIT &  SWITCH'  in NY state whereI studied business law for 2 years. The (B&S) practice is not  ethical but seems to be legal  where   I live,  in N.H.Frown
 Oh yes, while I'm in the atlernate store I purchase everything else I can get at  comparable prices to my usual groery store.Cool I've   told the grocery store mgr.what I'm doing & that's when he began to " special order "itemsffor me OR extend my raincheck ,My grocery budget( $50 weee average  a lot less than other shoppers) but he knows"i have BIG mouth" &  pursuade my neighbors to shop where orelewhereto find poductsI  reccomend to them.Since I retired,I have sufficient time to play the shpping game seriously & use my  shopping  skills & experience  to my advantage.Money mouth
