i know how hard it is to put food on your family

Is it just me, or has the price of groceries increased dramatically in the last three months?

I used to be able to spend within my weekly grocery budget without too much difficulty. But a few months ago, I noticed I was going over by five, then ten dollars a week. Two weeks ago, that jumped up to twenty-five, and this week, fifty dollars over my budget.

I'm not buying more name-brand or upmarket items. My cart wasn't even full. This is a disturbing trend because, like most people, my salary isn't increasing while the cost of everything else is.

I'm going to have to start looking for options to reign in my grocery bill. I don't know where I can make more cuts. But something has to give.
