Grocery prices????

July 23rd, 2011 at 02:19 pm

Yesterday we made our weekly trek to Aldi. I had my list for the items I wanted. We then pick up the items we can't get at another store. Since the heat is so bad, we decided to go to Aldi on one day and the other store today.

I noticed that some items at Aldi have risen since last week. Sugar went up. Portabella mushrooms went up over 40 cents. Butter went up a dime. Eggs had gone up a dime about three weeks ago. Lemons went up 40 cents. This isn't the complete list, but goodness, some of these are large hikes! I realize that some of the fresh produce is often priced on the growing and harvesting season, but eggs and butter?

Anyone else see grocery prices on the rise? Do you think this is a foretaste of the inflation to come?

    I feel like I've seen the prices rise quite a bit in the last several months. Butter and milk especially. Your post makes me think I should check my Aldi for butter, maybe their price is less than what I pay at Super Target.

    Yes, they are rising, and they think folks don't notice. We notice, but still need food to live.

    What caught my eye the other day was a carton of orange juice that said "Still 64 ounces" I quickly scanned the other cartons and sure enough, they were all 59 ounces now. WT?

    I think they have risen dramatically in the past 6 months. The commodities market is out of control-- with some things like meat prices and grain prices almost doubling in the last year or so. It's the rising middle class in China and Brazil. Everyone wants to eat like Americans, so we all pay more.
