It's scary the foods that we always ate our whole lives that we are now close to not eating anymore bc their prices are putting them on the levels of foods we never could afford.|
Growing up, you hear of certain expensive foods that your parents couldn't afford to buy, like lobster, caviar, prime rib, nice cheeses, etc.
Now we are looking at phasing out most store bought meat of any kind (we buy butchered meat by the several hundred lbs), ANY cheese, a lot of the various chips and crackers out there, a lot of vegetable produce when they are at certain prices, like lettuce at $2 a head, pop at $2 a 2 liter, A1 Steak Sauce (this is an odd inclusion, but we do like it on our meat and we haven't bought this in maybe 8 years, but growing up we did have it for some reason), all name brand cereal products, laundry detergent (we make our own), name brand salad dressings, non-wholesale bread products, and on and on.
