So, I'm in my SuperDuper Wally's World today trying to get some red bell pepper to make some native stew. I went there 'cos I figured it'd be cheaper than the grocery store.
One 0.3 lb red bell pepper = $3.78
Not 1 lb. Not 1 pack of 3. ONE!!! And it was tiny!
My god. The other day I wandered into the nut aisle of the grocery store expecting to pick up some cashew to snack on. $8.99/lb up from $6.19/lb a month ago.
So I get my reduced stimulus check next week (reduced because of "high income") and this is somehow supposed to give the economy a shot in the arm and provide relief from high food prices.
Never mind the gas prices ..
Okay. Done ranting.
That is all.
