Maybe its me but I am noticing every time I go to the grocery store I am spending 150.00 and I mean every week. I go to COSTCO and buy in bulk and food saver food and have the freezer full of main dish staples for future meals, so when I go to the grocery store it is the break, milk, juice, fresh veggies and etc. items I am picking up. Its not like I am buying steak or prepared frozen foods.

So when you retire it doesn't appear that the prices are ever going to go down and in planning I am starting to think I need to figure in a much higher cost for food. Are others finding that as well?

My sister says that Social Security for a couple of times in the past 5 years has not given a COLA as they claim there is no inflation. So if there is no inflation what is happening at the local grocery store?

Besides not buying stupid stuff and "easy" expensive food how do other retired folks deal with the cost of food?
