Yep, Mexican lime criminal cartels. ...$1 a small lime last time I bought.

Yikes. I used to keep limes on hand all the time, just in case--you know, a staple. If a few went bad, eh. Now I rarely buy them, and then it's exactly what I need for a specific purpose. They did seem cheaper when we were in the Southwest last fall.

Despite being a bit more cautious and having supposedly low inflation, I've had to increase the food budget. I used to think healthy/organic food would cost less as more people ate it, increasing the supply, but that's not what happened it seems.
