In Response to Re: How are the grocery prices in your area?:
NY prices are outrageous! I'm using coupons, recycled bags, returning plastic bags, bottles & I'm still paying more. Thanksgiving costs us almost $500 & I said so much for sales & coupons. When I get mad at price increases/gauging, I think my Dad has the right idea-go to a restaurant. As much as a restaurant appals me on a holiday, it's better than spending so much money on the food I always eat so why the hike? My Dad said restaurants are dying & prices are ridiculously cheap...he & my 2 brothers made reservations & are paying $40 for a 4-course meal & guaranteed to be out in under 2 hours. I think it's a disgrace what this country has succumbed too - food, gas, housing, anything & everything has increased & the product's no better than before

Jeannine I have to agree with you,I have been a big coupon shopper for the past 16 years.Manufacturers are not giving out coupons like they used to,The product' s have shrunk and in some cases not even comparable in the quality they once were.But they continue to escalate in price,when does this stop?The newest trick is 1 1/2 liters of pop or 1 1/4 liters,that not for our benefit,My husband likes that size to take to work and I refuse to give in to their nonsense,it's all about giving us less and charging more.
