    that is how much red potatoes cost here usually. and i am in idaho! you would think i could get cheap taters...actually russets usually are cheapso tnat is what i get.

    as for meat, i guess i am just unaware. i heard yesterday that there ate bare spots at the meat counter at the local grocery.
    i rarely buy meat at the store so just hadn’tnoticed

    Target.com seems to have dried beans back in stock. They were unavailable for a while when everyone was in panic mode I guess. I'm getting split peas and navy beans. Have pinto and kidney on hand already. The also have "roman" beans which I have never tried. Still cannot order barley for shipping. Sheesh.

    Amazon has tuna cups back in stock.

    It is also easier to get grocery delivery slots - at least where I live.

    Random things are out. I haven't been able to get green onions for months. It is not a big thing, just odd.

    We've never bought groceries from Amazon, except emergency yeast due to covid. Their groceries are ridiculously expensive.

    I'm sure the recent record meat exports to China have absolutely nothing to do with empty shelves in American grocery stores.

    This must be a another cost of living thing. Amazon Fresh which offers things like meat and fresh fruit is comparable to other grocery delivery services in our area. The regular Amazon food offerings, that is shelf stable things you can get though the mail are generally significantly cheaper than what we can get at the store.

    You cannot go by current pricing. Amazon prices for food have went up during the pandemic.

    Food is expensive here. We spend around $150 to $200 a week for two people. And that is with making most of our food from scratch. Meat is mostly chicken and ground meat. And stocking up on sale items. We try to eat healthy and we get a lot of fresh veggies. The vegetables alone are almost $40.

    I read about people feeding there family for $50 a week. I just don't have words.
