Grocery Inflation

I blame the money supply.

Ever since my wife went out of town, my grocery bills seem to have doubled. She would come home every Saturday talking about what she’d bought for the week… “I’ve only spent $39, and I’ve got us food for a week!”

Well, now that she is out of town, I can’t seem to spend less than $75 for the week. And I’m only feeding myself! And I didn’t even factor in the cost of beer!

Now, I could suggest that maybe it’s due to the fact that I’m buying little more than large quantities of meat and fresh vegetables. And that since I haven’t figured out portion control, I’m pretty much eating enough food for three (oddly, I’m not gaining weight?)… After all, one night last week I had a little over a pound of salmon ($15) and a little over a pound of asparagus ($3). Tonight I had over a pound of sausage/peppers/redonion, which came in a ready-cut package, and two ears of corn on the cob. Maybe quantity and choice of food have something to do with it? Nah…

It can’t be my eating habits, my lack of shopping acumen, or anything of my own fault. I prefer to blame inflation. Damn you, Ben Bernanke! Damn you to hell!

  2. I’d recommend Aldi’s… but their produce sucks arse – but they are great for non-perishables and SOME frozen items. Might I suggest spending more of your money then at Kentaco Bell? Between the 99 cent buffalo snacker sammiches and the 99 cent cheesy bean and rice burrito, there’s not much else left to live for (aside from downtempo indie rock, lambic, terrence mckenna lectures, and darren aronofsky films that is).

    This is a pathetic existence, is it not? :P

  3. Taco Bell and Lambic? Something about that combination just seems wrong, wrong, wrong.

  4. taco bell and lambic…. it could be worse – the other day my breakfast consisted of a brown sugar pop tart topped with spicy brown dijon mustard and washed down with a pint of warm mead. and while that might be the breakfast of champions, one must assume that said champion is NOT diabetic.
