I shop a around ffor specials and day old or going out of date items. Who can aford to just go and just buy. Dinning out is not in the cards anymore.

Yes because I am on a Fix Income

we have cut back on the amount of beef we buy
_______________________________
we buy more frozen fruit & veg.

Yes! I find myself pouring through the sale flyers all the time. I usually shop at several different stores buying only the items that are on sale. Thankfully, I shop locally so that I am not defeating the purpose of trying to save money and finding myself way out of town burning gas to do so. Buying in bulk when items are on sale is helpful too
_______________________________
Yes, I shop more often, purchase smaller amounts . . . I don't want to waste anything, and eat it at it's freshest.
_______________________________
Yes it most defiantly has, these days you have to watch and watch where you shop. Saugeen Shores grocery stores except for Walmart are ridiculously overpriced.
_______________________________
darn right. I will not pay those prices and will find other alternatives. Canned fruit and vegetables will have to do for now.
_______________________________
i am more diligent, and I thank the stores that do price matching....there is one store that the prices are outrageous and don't compete with others..we don't all have high incomes

Still don't get why the price of Beef and milk would escalate as we produce these products here in Bruce County.
_______________________________
I stopped eating good food and only eat junk now, thank you Canada.

You "gotta" eat and eat healthy at that. How much do we really spend eating out? How many pack lunches? Life is full of trade-offs and eating is a basic need. Just do a little less of something else and eat well. We don't know how good we have it.
_______________________________
Without question. My CPP and OAS are not keeping up with inflation so my food choices are becoming narrower and narrower and more likely less healthy.
_______________________________
We still have to eat healthy. We always by more healthy then junk.
_______________________________
I really watch what is on sale.
_______________________________
I purchase only on sale items.
_______________________________
Yes. Increased food prices always has an impact on the items you select when shopping
_______________________________
I have noticed a price increase in many items that we normally buy, over the past month or so. I try to shop the specials but even the specials have gone up in price.

the price of produce is unreal
