    For the first time in at least 6 months, my husband went grocery shopping with me today. I thought the poor man was going to have a heart attack at the price of everything. First we went to the "cheap" grocery store. He has never cared for most of their foods. He also had no idea how much of our...

    Stop by for a quick trip to Albies (to use my doublers) and wanted to get some ice cream for a peach crisp tonight. The Dreyers ice cream regular price $7.99 :thud: What on earth? Luckily it was on sale for $3.99 which I still thought was a bit outrageous but Dh insists on ice cream with...

This weekend we took our 6 and 8 year old to their first ever movie at the theater. $33 for two adults and two children at the matinee. :ack: I hadn't been to the theater since December 2005. I think tickets were $6.50...

    Of course, I've seen on the news about the food crisis, and even though I was expecting higher prices at the grocery store today, I was still in shock at the price difference between this week and last. Here is what I didn't buy today. Fresh broccoli $3.47 ( was $1.47) Baby Carrots $1.29 (was...

    Maybe it's the entire pot of coffee, the lack of adequate rest, or those dang dust bunnies getting to me from all the decluttering, but this just gave me the giggles. So you’re a feminist…Isn’t that cute, honey! If a cow laughs hard enough does milk come out it’s nose?

    I have a toy that I tried removing the price that had the sticker and all the label but the adhesive guck came off. I've tried rubbing it, putting water to it and rubbing it, using a curled piece of tape and 'dabbing' off the other adhesive and nothing works. I have to get the tape off and...

    Just got back from weekly grocery shopping and was totally floored by the prices. I stopped first at the salvage grocery and found the the prices had risen so much that I could get a lot of the same items at grocery store prices. It was very slim pickings, but I did manage to pick up a few...

    OK, not really sticker shock, but I'm not sure what else to call it. I was sitting in church at one of the library tables the other day. Next to me was a 20 year old young woman and her mom. Mom was clipping coupons. Daughter picks up the Best Buy section of the paper and starts saying the...

    Today is the first day I've been able to go to the Save-A-Lot grocery store for almost 11 weeks because of an injury. They don't have a decent wheelchair.
