Well, let’s put it this way. I have a birthday to shop for later on and actually went to some shops this afternoon. I have not done this for a Loooonnnnngggg time.
Everything, I mean EVERY LAST BLOODY THING that I picked up and thought might be worth considering was 3 to 4 TIMES what I remember things like this would be 3-4 years ago.
I found myself speeding as I was leaving the area. I realized I was fleeing the prices. No joke.
Now, I don’t know what I am going to do. I can’t buy those things anymore.
And then, there were the people with kids shopping for school. Clothes and shoes and school supplies and backpacks and OMG. You could drop $1K without batting an eye...per child. I heard several people that didn’t look like I’d expect—saying that they couldn’t afford to buy X Y Z. Couples were shopping with their children, not just moms.
Then there was the grocery store. I am beginning to get an inordinate fear of the produce area of a grocery store. Did you know that if you want to buy real, healthy food, you need to practically take out a 2nd mortgage?
Thank you, 0bama, Democrats and RINOs, for making us pay now, later and until Jesus comes.
Aside from price increases, I notice the lack of employees at the local grocery stores, Walgreens etc. There is always a line because of fewer check-out personnel.
The reason home gardening is growing expotentially. I believe the 'garden ping list' here at FR has in excess of 500 subscribers.
We do what we must do to make it through these miserable times, and children must be taught that there is no shame to be seen in, or purchasing from any of the above sources. You do what you have to do to obtain the necessities. And thank God we do have these resources.
