My son just bought a brand new XLT Ford dually, just above base model, for $93,000.

😳😳 Obscene!!! My mtg is way less. Couldn't buy one.


Many of the food corporations are having record profits right now. Because they raised prices because they could and tried to pass it off as inflation.

This -- accurate beyond reasonable doubt!! 😡😡😡 Between prices up and quantity down, yeah we're all getting screwed and not even a 💋 kiss! But the top line corp people are all getting huge bonuses. I hope they choke on some of the crap they're selling.

But I don't buy much of it -- so there's that. 👍 I'll continue to grow most of my food. They can keep their chemicals & high sugars, etc. 🤷. Just me being me.

It is horrible greed, shrinkflation, and corruption.

I broke down and bought a package of Wally's lunch meat. Cooked ham, water added is the legal label. $8 for 24 ounces. I don't need no stinking plastic tub with lunch meat. I just want something other than PB or tuna fish for my son and hubs. It was a treat!!

Thankfully, I bring home alot of "expired" canned goods from the fd bank. Alot goes to the chickens and the compost, and some to us. Last nite, 2 cans of canned beets from 2020. Yummy! (Fd bank has a rule that any thing older than exactly 6 months back, needs to be tossed. Chaps my hide, so I bring the discards home on my two shifts).

No wonder our applications for food bank assistance is growing every week. I had three new families just on my Monday afternoon shift.

I got some outdate/close date meats from a store last week. 18# of armour bacon, 29 PKG Oscar meyer bun length hot dogs, close date -- in my freezer. Plus almost 30# of out of date meats/ hot dogs -- cats LOVE me!! Oh, cheese -- 14.5# sliced, various type, close dated & 4 pkgs philly crm ch. Cheese -- really? That stuff keeps waaay past date BUT stores cannot keep it.

Free is great. 🤣 Sometimes I get fresh produce being tossed for dates & crackers, etc. Chickens & goats adore it.

We don't have a "business/restaurant" situation like that which is open to the public. There are plenty of that type distribution centers -- licensed, wholesale sales only. There is a "middle of nowhere" grocery that does sell a lot of primal & case lot specials. Mostly, don't want a lot of what they have. Do get some good buys there sometimes! And, they will cut you primal to order while you're there...free. 👍
