We reported in January about the food prices at area stores. It seemed like a good idea.
Today, with oil prices going as high a $105/barrel, we felt that it was time to do an update on our local cost of living.
We added Walgreens to the mix because their outside sign is advertising milk prices this week. We also added eggs after discussing how much we all use eggs each week in our menu planning.
|1 doz, Large Eggs||$1.75||$2.19||$1.99||$1.82|
We appreciate the competition between the chain stores on these particular staple food items. But the obscene amount of displayed food at Walmart puts all the other stories to shame and our editors to tears. Our one Walmart over in Montcross has more food on the shelves in one day than many stores in Haiti or Pakistan can display in a year.
We live in a land of plenty and we are thankful for the options and choices that we have in this community.

LOL! Who had time to go do this???? Is someone bored?! No – good info, thanks. But – who can eat the bread at Aldi’s? It’s always about half stale. However, I do like many of their products and I’m glad they are here – even if they do only open one register!
