Darla M., I was also shocked at the price of bacon. It seems like just a few months ago it was only $3.00/pound. I have switched to turkey bacon for now, at around $2.50/pound. Oscar Mayer's is actually very tasty, in our opinion. And it's more healthy!

The turkey bacon is a different consistency than the real thing, but the flavor is good, especially in a BLT!

The prices in NJ have gone up too.  It is really getting sad.  Gasoline keeps going up and in turn, the price of food keeps going up.  I try to use coupons and buy according to sales and coupons, but it is still high.  Also there are not many coupons lately.

 Using coupons and shopping sale items I spent $67.18 and saved $90.99 WOW ! I rack up .60 cents off per gallon of gas.There was a bonus of .10 off per gallon for every $20 dollars spent on specifed items along with the usual gas perks.That will be $15.20 off my gas fill up!So all together that was a savings $ 106.19 Today alone.I also earned 4 % off my next shopping trip.I still wish I could figure out how those extreme couponer do it?

Land of Lakes Butter is on sale 2 for 5.00 dollars. So I used a fifty cents coupon that the store doubled for a dollar and paid four dollars for two pounds of butter. Two dollars a pound.

Ridulous!!! It seems that baking items skyrocket around the holidays. Can't believe canned pumpkin is $1.68 for 15 oz and $2.78 for large can. Pine nuts are prohibitive, $9 for 1/2 lb.  When will it stop???

I got some bargains at my stores.  Seems they are having some good ones for the holiday.  Celery for 47, sweet potatoes for 37, Karo ( I get the dark when it is on sale for pecan pie) $2, but I had 80 cents off coupon, Hy-Vee pumpkin for 69.  There are some bargains out there andif you can find coupons to match, you can save

Went shopping late Fri. (I had a lot of coupons & 2 rain checks that I planned to use, so I got to the store about 9:30PM) There were some good sales, but I noticed that there were items not on sale that the store use to have on sale the week before turkey day for the past 30 + years.  I bought a 18.67# turkey, about 12# sweet potatoes, 5 boxes Stove Top (will use during 2012, not for next week) 5# bread flour, 2 bottles of McCormick extract, 2 Miracle Whip, 3# butter, gal. of milk, 4 Pillsbury pie crust (I like to have some in the freezer), 2 S. Lee Apple Pies(like to have at least 1 in the freezer for drop ins)  2 heads of lettuce, 2 bags of Dole salad, 2 Dole pineapple & a few other items. Total before coupons & rain checks was $114.37 & I paid $47.34(savings of $67.03). I now have all I need for Thanksgiving dinner but I saw the ad for next week & will go Wed. (or maybe Thr. while the turkey is cooking) & buy a few items that will be on sale. I do not leave the house on black Fri., I usually start baking & making turkey soup to freeze.

Why would anyone buy anything but REAL ones?  The imitation ones taste terrible. Kind of like imitation vanilla--only the real stuff for me

That is a good price for fresh cranberries.  My cheapest ones are $1.69.  Remember when a bag of cranberries was a pound instead of the current shrunked 12 oz?

I have  to  work on black Friday so have to go out, but I certainly  won't be shopping.  I go to work early and it is amazing to see all the cars in the mall parking lot at 6 am.
