My wife just returned from the store and she had made a few observations while shopping. Canned meats like spam, sardines, salmon here in my area has jumped $2 in price over the last week. I also noticed that the deli cheese that we buy every week for $2.01 while it's the same price it's being cut paper thin now. Porkchops are the same way, they used to be about 1/2 inch to an inch thick and now they are cut so thin if you lay them on a newspaper would could probably read the print on the other side. I wonder what things will be like as the weeks go on and the full effect of whats going on in the economy hits the stores and the consumers who shop there.
