grocery prices are getting crazy everywhere but I do like Judy does..I stock up on things when they are on sale even though I dont need them  like dryed noodles and jarred sauces and cereals...we have alot of 10 for 10 sales here and some times we have stock up or case lot sales...but I sometimes run out of room to store everything

A five pound bag of sugar is 2.97.  I purchased two bags and paid 2.91 by using two 65 cent coupons  that  Harris Teeter doubled to .280.

Unfortunately prices continue to rise.  There aren't many bargains and even coupons aren't as plentiful.

Just like any other place, the prices are high here in N.E. OH.  Kroger prices are "out of this world"!!  I only go there now IF they have exactly what I want/need, and it must be on sale!  That leaves Meijer......at least their prices are within reason, even if they are high.  Sometimes, their prices for "same" items at Kroger's are at least 75 cents less than Kroger.  We don't belong to Costco or Sam's as there are only two of us; but my daughter is a Costco member, and she sometimes brings things to me that she knows I like.  I hope that this world gets straightened around someday soon!  Even with just two of us, my grocery bill is $400+ per month!  We eat out quite often, or it would be even more.  Sometimes, eating out is the way to go......especially for breakfast!  Most places have "early breakfast" specials.  Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day.

Tampa Bay area, Florida, high, high, high. Potatoes $5 for 5 lbs, meat up 50%, produce unbelievable & poor quality to boot (romaine up 30 cents in one week), cabbage as high as 89 cents a pound, healthy bread starts at $4.29 a loaf. Whole wheat or bread flour 5 lb for $3.99 is the cheapest I've found. No fresh apples in yet, pears on sale 40 cents a pound more than last year. Basic store-brand packaged cheddar cheese, $4.99 a pound. Store brand milk, $3.89 a gallon. Peanut butter 'way, 'way up--hardly eat meat anymore, unless I get hotdogs on a BOGO offer. Trying to win over Type 2 diabetes, so the fresh produce part is critical! No, I won't shop Walmart--you have to be so careful, a lot of their stuff comes from China, and it's rarely cheaper than Publix sale prices. I don't generally eat pre-prepared or convenience foods. I shop the "sales" at Publix, Target, Winn-Dixie, sometimes Sweet Bay (very high); Aldi doesn't take credit cards, so I don't shop there much, although I do like their cornbread crackers for tomato soup, and will indulge in a box of maple leaf cookies and make them last for months--amazing how well stuff keeps in the freezer when packaged well.

In Response to Re: How are the grocery prices in your area?:
Prices in PA keep going up in food and gas.  I make up my shopping list and try to get what I can at the discount stores and then I try to finish up at Wal-mart.  I still spend around $130.00 - $150.00 and it's just my husband and I.  I make most of our meals and you just cannot save money anymore. What also floors me is the prices for cleaning product, detergents, paper products and HBA items.

I agree just two of us also i spend $110 and find very few coupons to use or much on sale most of the coupons I find are for things most people don;t need or use.

Here in Northern WI we are experiencing 50 cents to $1.00 higher also.  Up here the retailers will NOT accept Internet generated coupons which makes it really tough for us.  We would have to drive to Duluth MN in order to use Internet coupons.
