I was sent to the local grocery store today for a few simple items: tomatoes, lettuce, chicken breasts and bacon. Kendall wanted a grilled chicken salad with bacon for dinner. To me it should be $2 for three tomatoes, $1 for lettuc, $5.99 for a bag'o'breasts, and $1.99 for bacon.
I think I still live in 1997.
THE PRICES HERE IN TOWN ARE OUTRAGEOUS! I get so mad when I try to go over there to buy a few things that should be about five or six bucks, not ten or eleven. I was astounded that they wanted $5.99 for 2.5 pounds of frozen chicken breasts when I KNOW that Aldi's down the road a ways has FIVE pounds of chicken breasts for $4.99 NO JOKE. Lettuce is .99 at Wal-mart, they wanted $1.49. Yuck!
So do you know what I did? I bought a turkey for $1.49/lb and now we have enough food to last till Monday. Poop on them if they think they can get me to pay $2.99-3.50/lb for chicken! Good grief the farms are a few towns over, why is is SO EXPENSIVE?
I try really hard to give the little man his share and not shop so much at huge box stores like Walmart but dog gone it if this po dunk town's grocery chain is going to nickel and dime and QUARTER me to death then I'm willing to drive the 20-30 minute drive down to the beast named Walmart and give them my business.
