Sticker Shock!!!

What does sticker shock have to do with jars of homemade jelly? A trip to the Grocery store!!!!!!!!
As you know we stock pile ,I know that's not for everyone, but it works Great for us.I was raised here on the homestead and its always been away of life for me. You had a garden you canned, froze,and dried your food. My Mom cooked everything from scratch.We had cows ,made butter,buttermilk,cottage cheese. She cooked on a wood burning cook stove. She did not do short order You ate what she put on the table and was very Thankful for it. Alot of our meat came from fishing or hunting.
DH does most of the grocery shopping in between stocking up, bulk buying trips. This week I ventured out to grocery shop. I noticed a couple items I put in the cart was higher than the norm ,at first I thought it was because I hadn't been grocery shopping in awhile .The longer I shopped I realized no its because the prices for everything had gone up! Right off the top of my head there's 2 items we buy alot of I use to buy one for .79 it went to $1 since the last trip it has gone up to $1.75 , the other item was $1 then it went to $1.19 now its $1.69.Its not only these two items everything.
Between canning, freezing, and drying our food and we have a couple discount Grocery stores plus reg. stores.We get better deals than most cities. Once stockpiled we can buy mostly items on Sale, We don't buy just because a sale it has to be something we will eat .When you shop a Grocery Outlet if you find something you like ,you have to buy then, next trip it will be sold out.
I stay on top of food waste. I stay on top of dates on food and rotate pull the older to the front like grocery stores does.
With the freeze in Fl.few wks. back, there will be shortages on fruit ,so trying to stock up on frozen fruit .I did find frozen strawberries , raspberries, peaches,blackberries,blueberries for $1 per lb. at the Grocery Outlet. SO that was nice to find!Some other good items such as this.
Are you finding your prices are jumping UP,UP,Up like this also?
So come summer I will be "Putting Up" more food as we call it around here.
Hope everyone has a warm and cozy Week end!
