    The price of a quart of milk is now over a dollar. I've heard/read that there's some inflation, and I've noticed that other items are holding steady pricewise.

    Just wondering what you're all noticing around the country regarding the prices of things.

    My DD keeps close track of what she spends for grocerys for her family. She told me the other day that her grocery bill has gone up almost $100 every 2 weeks in the past 18 months. For us, every utility has gone up as well as taxes. And we won't even discuss gasoline!

    I don't even want to think about it. My wages are not keeping up with inflation. What's a girl to do.

    I'll have to look tomorrow. Honestly I quit looking at the prices of things when gas went so high.....I figure it is what it is and I just have to pay the price if I want it...but now you've got me curious!

    A quart of milk????? I can't even imagine only buying a quart of milk. We go through 3 - 4 gallons of mild a week.

    You are not alone...in the last 12 months our electricity prices went up 23.28%, fuel by about 15%. Food prices are constantly sneaking up and it is cheaper to buy junk food than fresh fruit and veggies. Retirement for us is getting a distant dream!

    My DH is a diabled vet, so our checks haven't kept pace with rising prices either. Discretionary funds are at an all time low. Our grocery tab has gone up at least $200 a month over the last year or so. We don't buy anything different or extravegant. We had a pellet stove installed to offset our gas heating bill. That has helped.

    Yesterday I bought a gallon of milk for $1.68; it's regularly a loss-leader at Wegmans. I don't need a gallon, just me and I only use it for cereal for evening snacks every now and again. Would have bought the half gallon, but it was $1.65. For $.03 more, I got double and will.... freeze it? I know I can, neighbors used to when I was a kid (we were way out in the country - no shopping every day then, lol). I can't stand to drink it, unless w/ warm chocolate chip cookies. Grew up 3x per day, bleck. When DD's are home, we go through a lot as they both drink it, by choice. Give me water.

    For what it's worth, I can guarantee you the farmer isn't getting any more for the milk. My brother took over the small family farm when Dad died many years ago; he's often getting less per hundred weight (units that farmers sell milk in) than Dad did 40 years ago.
