Has No Life - Lives on TB
I placed an order with amazon on Saturday, 9-17-22. Everything in that order has now gone up in price. The electric vacuum sealer has gone up $4 since Saturday. And by the way, DH likes that vacuum sealer too.
YesJust checked out the Kroger sales ad this morning. They have Progresso canned soups on sale, we always get the 'light' version and they're pretty darn good. Last year we'd get them on sale for 99 cents a can, no minimum required; I think the regular price was $1.49. (Correction, DH said the regular price was $1.25 last year).
This week they're on sale for $1.49 if you buy 8; regular price is $2.49. I'm really glad we stocked up on them last year. DH and I split a can, we should have enough for the winter.
Three semi trailers loaded with meat stolen in Nebraska over the weekend, latest in a string of meat cargo thefts
Police in Grand Island, Nebraska, are investigating a meat cargo theft incident that occurred over the weekend and investigating whether it could be connected to a larger meat cargo theft ring.
On Friday, September 16, officers responded to the Lineage Logistics facility at 203 Roberts St E. in Grand Island for a report that two semi trailers were missing from the lot.
The two trailers were loaded with meat from Gibbon Packing Co., according to Grand Island Police.
Like robbing a bank because that's where the money is. If you want a trailer of meat, the meatpacker's parking lot is prime hunting ground.This has to be an inside job, this is NOT the first time this year a meat cargo theft has occurred in that part of Nebraska!
Sorry, that's a lunch for us. We have a big breakfast (homegrown eggs, potatoes, and DH has bacon). From the can of soup, I usually just take some of the carrots and a good amount of the broth, to which I add half an avocado and a cracker or two. DH takes the bulk of the chicken, pasta, and vegetables.That may be for you, but it's not for me.
In splitting a can, you're each getting an average of maybe 80 calories from those different light soups. The calories per dollar comes at an astronomical price. For preppers, one would need an enormous amount of space to house enough calories, protein, etc...for say several months or more.
On the plus side, Progresso is more palatable than Campbell's, but still well short of homemade.
Did your store have the jars of pickled red cabbage and apples? Mine didn't yesterday.We just got back from German Week at our local Aldi's! I made a big haul, since I don't know if most of what I bought will be available all the time, or just this week. I would have bought more, but forgot our cooler, so I couldn't buy anything that had to be kept cold or frozen. I went specifically for the imported German food items. All shelf stable, and a great addition to my pantry. Prices weren't too bad, either. The German dark chocolate-almond candy bars and the dark pumpernickel breads, alone, made the trip worth it. The pumpernickel bread is a favorite of Cary's. $2.49 per loaf.
I can't remember who told us about German Week but Thank You!
Where the heck is that "this thread is worthless without pictures" pic? Lol.Yes I almost laid an egg at the check out.
And then when the bones are soft I smush them up and add to the dogs' food....Every time I buy a roasted chicken at Costco, I pick the meat off and then stick the carcass in a big pot, add onion, carrots, celery and a lot of dried parsley to the water and simmer it for a nice rich stock.
Quick and easy and nothing goes to waste.
So much more tastier than canned broth. V
Thank you for a HUGE reminder.Sorry, that's a lunch for us. We have a big breakfast (homegrown eggs, potatoes, and DH has bacon). From the can of soup, I usually just take some of the carrots and a good amount of the broth, to which I add half an avocado and a cracker or two.

Agree, there's nothing better than homemade, but when we're under the weather or need a quick lunch in winter this works well for us.
Totally understand this wouldn't work for a lot of people. We're both pretty light eaters now that we're in our upper 60s.
Wow!I was running all day yesterday and stopped at Wegmans hot bar and got hubby 6 chicken wings. $10.43
Same at our Kroger. Indiana, north of Indy.Went to WM, Diet Coke is now 12.68 a case OR 8.87 for a 18 pack, 12 pks are now 7.89.
Blue Bell Chocolate Ice Cream small pint size $3.97, over $7 for a HALF gallon.
Everything I look at and buy is close to tripling what it cost a year ago.
Perfect segue into what the local H‑E‑B stores are doing. I’ll use a couple examples, but it’s all over the store. They used to have their fruit juices and canned soups all together (though in different aisles). A few months ago they “renovated” their aisles. Now juices are spread way apart, with apple in one section, grape in another, and orange in a third. Same with soups. Used to be the small cans of condensed soups were right next to the big cans of “chunky” soups, which were right next to the Progresso. All that has now been dispersed along 75’ of shelving, with unrelated crap in-between. It’s now nearly impossible to shop for anything because of that. But it sure makes the empty spaces smaller.Canned meats are in the candy aisle - seriously.
I did not see any shortages a week ago when I went to an Aldi’s in suburban Memphis.Our Aldi's, yesterday, was fully stocked. I saw no shortages anywhere, but was disappointed they didn't have their pickled red cabbage. It's been quite a while, since I've gone into Aldi's, I don't know if their prices were higher than normal, or not.
I do dread to see what the price increase is going to be the next time I go to Walmart. I'm having to buy less and less.
