Rising prices

I know by now you all have noticed how the prices of groceries and gas have risen.  Just curious to know how every one is dealing with this.  Are you making any changes, let me know I could use a few new ideas and strategies.

Buying less on Jun 13, 2014 @ 04:17 pm

Some things more than others are really expensive. Gas and beef prices are the ouches right now. Especially since we buy locally raised, hormone free, ethical beef. Overall, I think we are just buying less. I just started to be more vigilent about my buying patterns - . Especially since we are working less to have more free time.

I am definitely walking more since gas went up. I've actually started eating rice more too, instead of potatoes....lol

Price Comparison Shopping on Jun 14, 2014 @ 08:41 pm

I read through all the groceries flyers and mark out items we need, then I shop at Walmart and lower price comparison everything. I believe I save about $50 a week doing this.

I used to have a group of people that would split things. ie, we would buy in bulk and 4 or 5 of use would then share the items and pay accordingly. It worked really well. Must get another group together and see if we can get that going again. Also I have a lot of containers that seal well, so when my cereeal is on sale I buy the larges box (check the price per unit cause sometimes bigger is not better price wise.)

We also text each other when we see a real good instore bargain and then p/u for the other person,m saving time, money and gas.

My family's wallet has taken a hit as well. To compensate, I now shop around at different places for better prices even though it's a tad more time consuming. I also take part in SnapSaves and Checkout 51, which allow you to earn cash back on certain items. Every bit of saving makes a difference and eventually goes a long way. :)

To be honest with you if I see an item that I usually buy weekly in my groceries and the price is gone up,I mean not a couple of cents but 30 or 40 cents,I will not buy it.No matter how bad I want it,I will not purchase it.It's the principal of the matter,it is not right for the consumer to pay the price every time a store or Supermarket decides to increase the prices on products.There should be a law against this sort of thing happening or a limit.I blame everything like this on our governments and it's about time we all take a stand.I think Katieg has a good idea about shopping.

Don't blame the stores on Jun 16, 2014 @ 10:38 am

Anglewings, every time some one gets a raise (as a unit), or fuel prices go up, or there is a natural disaster which affects crops, prices go up. It is a Domino effect, don't blame the stores, they are paying more too.

I've been doing a lot more coupon clipping, and ordering coupons online, and price matching. I watch the flyers, and stock up when something I like and use often is on for a good deal.
