A majority of Americans believe that the inflationary grocery prices will continue to increase.
That's according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.
The survey found that 85% of American adults say they’re paying more for groceries now than they were a year ago. This number is slightly down from the 89% recorded in August.
Only nine percent (9%) now say they aren’t paying more for groceries.
Fifty-seven percent (57%) expect that the amount they spend on groceries a year from now will be even higher.
Fifty-seven percent (57%) say rising food prices have caused them to change their eating habits, while 37% have not changed the way they eat because of inflation.
Twenty-two percent (22%) expect their grocery bill to remain about the same.
Only 10% think they’ll be paying less for groceries in a year and another 12% are not sure.

If they are buying groceries with their own money...they are paying more.
Keep track of your regular things your order from all the grocery stores in your area. They all use what we they call "Loss leaders." Reduced prices to get you into the store because you will then keep shopping. If you use discipline and just go in and buy the loss leader and walk out your ahead of the game. I pay less for coffee now then before. When my favorite brand is used as a loss leader I'll buy ten at one time.
