Yesterday, Mr FS, who doesn't really worry himself with such things, said We eat oatmeal for breakfast and peanut butter sandwiches or a burrito for lunch. You can't spend much less than that.
We are lucky that way. We don't eat that stuff because it's cheap (though it is) or because it's healthy (well, maybe a little), but because we LIKE it.
Now that I have a little more time on my hands, I was noodling around the internet. There are many laments about rising prices. Most of the laments have to do with lunch meat and bacon. I find lunch meat (or cold cuts) yucky in general. Bacon is good, but a pound or two a year will suffice. I use it mainly for flavoring bean soup.
I AM addicted to coffee (now proved to be healthy! YAY!). I noticed that the sale price of coffee has risen 50 cents. That would be a $25.00 yearly increase. I can absorb that, even though we haven't had a raise in four years.
Have rising prices affected your shopping or eating habits?
