Where do you live & are food prices & household item prices going up?
I ask this bc SO cant seem to get it through his head that this is happening for us where we live. First of all we moved 3-4 months ago & prices here seem to be more in general. In addition to that they continue to go up higher with every grocery visit it seems.
Today was my trip to town that I make once a week (30mins away). I do it on the day my daughter has gymnastics class in town to save on gas. The rest of the week we literally dont leave our house again to save on gas. He continues to wail at me that we'll never get ahead at this rate blah de da. I dont know why he cant get it through his head but instead just keeps throwing things out there like I must be buying more expensive brands. Um well duh take a look around I am not everything is the same!
I know SO is just feeling the pinch this year we've spent a lot. I was around $1000 just to move & our rent is $100 here more a month. In addition to this we got a new vehicle traded in an older one for down but now have just under a $400 a month payment. He is feeling the pinch now but by golly I cut corners too & actually since we moved I spend less money then I did before & he spends more money then he did before! Part of this is his 30min each way commute to work as well, so I get it we're feeling the pinch but in reguards to grocery shopping & household items I havent changed my habits its just the prices are hiking up out of my control.
So I was just curious if the same was going on where you live?
