My DH has heard me complaining about the rise in food prices for several years now, but this last year...oh boy...the prices have shot up! I've been budgeting and trimming down every way that I can. The new app for our local, big, grocery store, Safeway, has really helped me to plan ahead, take advantage of the deals and trim down the list before I go to the store. I use it religiously now and take advantage of their "drive-up & go," program. That way, I don't have to be subjected to seeing those impulse buys in the store. (Not to mention the increased exposure to covid.) It's been working well for me. I've been able to keep my food budget on par, even a little lower than last year.

Iceblossom...that is really interesting about the boxes. I never would have thought about that.
