Re: Food Prices

All good points brought up. Something I've really tried to focus much more on is not wasting food. I think I heard on the news a couple of weeks back that the average household wastes 25% (and over $600/year) of the food in their refrigerator/pantry.

I'm not talking about you had a big meal, and can't finish that last spoonful. I'm talking about people buying a bunch of food and never even opening it before they buy more of the same. I try to buy only what I need and only wait until the absolute last minute to buy more.

Re: Food Prices

Buster, we may not share many common view points, but we share the the italian loafs are the best!

Smootsmack -- 25% seems insane to me. Sometimes I have to throw food out, but very rarely. Normally it's one piece of fruit that ends up not quite getting eaten on time, or the very end of something I made far too much of. Wow, that's a huge number.

Personally, I'll never shop at Super Wal-Mart, Harris Teeter, or BJs Wholesale because of the way they treat vendors. But that's a bit closer to my heart than most. When you have to stand outside in the rain while the bread is getting drenched in rain because they'll only let one person in at a time, then complain that the bread is wet, I get pissed. Wonder why their bread randomly goes moldy far before the expiration date!
I feel you. My husband's a bread man. I hope he never gets a Super Wal-Mart on his route.

If you guys think it's tough purchasing gas for your personal vehicles, try having to buy gas for a delivery truck every few days. Between our personal vehicles and the bread truck, we'll probably end up spending around $1000 this month on fuel.

I can get a loaf of regular white bread for $0.89 but I usually spring for the Italian for $1.59.

Just bought some last night too.
I like Oroweat Oatnut bread. I'm finding myself going to costco these days though to compensate and buy in bulk.

Re: Food Prices

What makes me sick is a buddy came back from fishing in Venezuela and said
diesel fuel was 8 cents a gallon! That is just not right.

My food bill is going up as well and I got two growing boys. Read were the average family is now spending about $300 more a month on groceries.

Well the cost of gas there is more than 8 cents its that the goverment subsidises the gas to keep people happy.

Re: Food Prices

What about the government subsidizing farmers not to farm? Or disposal of surplus wheat in the sea?
