I am not a “shopper.” I get 95% of my needs met at Costco. I pay them a quart of my husband’s blood and I am DONE.
(I just figured is 5% of his annual gross income. OUCH! Love You HONEY!!!)
Today, being 35 miles away from the nearest Costco, I cheated… I grabbed the few items I needed from another local food warehouse and Walmart.
I KNOW!!! Walmart SUCKS! But as a said…. I CHEATED!
It wasn’t worth it….and by the time I got home I felt horrible; frustrated and angry at myself.
I know I shouldn’t have done it. I should’ve waited until I went into Anchorage on Friday, then the Hubby and I could have done Costco together.
This is what I learned and what is currently plaguing my brain:
Our “pound” of locally roasted coffee use to be 14oz and about $8.00, which I always thought was a crock and never bought. BUT…. this morning, its 12oz and approximately $9.00.
If I just did the math right that’s a 24% INCREASE per ounce of coffee.
Oh, it gets better.
So, I stop by Walmart. They are the cheapest place to purchase…..um…….
TAMPONS. *** Ok, I said it….let’s move on.***
Bare bones basic…..none of that fancy pretty stuff.
Those little puppies used to be under $5 a box….lets say $4.57.
This morning, $6.57. A 31% increase per ………………………tampon.
Are you understanding?
Do not believe what you hear!!!The economy is NOT gradually getting BETTER. Stop drinking the damn Kool-Aid.
YOU ARE THE FROG IN THE SOUP POT!
******ok, if you don’t believe me….fine. Just wait and see what happens when women stop being able to afford their coffee and tampons.******
Ya feel me now????
