Same thing for tubs of imitation butter I buy. . . I purchased a supply about a year ago for 99 cents per 15oz/425g tub. Now the "sale" price is hovering around 2 dollars each! That's a 100 percent increase! If prices keep going up at this rate, are we going to be able to afford to eat? Our wages are not going up 25 or 100 percent!
I'm going to resort to making meals out of my pantry stash for a while and concentrate on guerrilla tactics shopping. What I mean is, REALLY focus laser sharp on sales and loss leaders even more so than I used to, and put away a substantial stash to weather the coming storm. It is getting frightfully ugly out there. . .
