yikes at the grocery store

Saving log - $0 tip box
Spending log - $1.19 coffee +$17 lunch

So much for the 3 free lunches. I just caught up on this one.

Yesterday I discovered that I had no tomato sauce for the pasta sauce, so I made do last night with chopped tomatoes, tomato paste, and a bit of vinegar and water. Every so often, though, I need tomato sauce.

Here's where the price book gets depressing - the best price I saw was .95/14 oz can. Back in 2004 sauce was .33 - .44/can.

Then I checked out the pasta
2008 - $2.38/16 oz bag
mid 2007 - $1.50/16 oz bag
2005 - .69/16 oz bag
2004 - .67/16 oz bag

    All I can say to that is WOW! You can tell it is happening, but to see the actual amounts is WOW!

    Wow! That is quite the upswing on the price of pasta! The one I've really noticed is the price of apples -- it used to be that I could get 5 for $1.00 -- now it's more like 2, or *sometimes* 3 for a dollar.
