We are all hurting from the price increases that come with inflation. Even those who are better off with various figure incomes are dealing with heavy financial losses, particularally if they have a lot of credit debt or mortgages on multiple properties. Just trying to get your food as well as essentials from the grocery store is much harder than it was 12 weeks ago. Much has changed for the worse in the time since. For instance, the price of our favorite french fries from our local supercenter increased by literally 100% since this time last year. I thought the inflation levels never got higher than 9%! How does a single account for particular products literally doubling in price over this phase of time? It’s actually bonkers when I start to assume about it. My pay increased a tiny bit last year, however it’s not enough to offset what I’m forced to pay when I go to the grocery store to buy food to survive. The only saving grace right now with products that I buy correctly is the drop in price for cannabis flower products in our state. Back when our state first unveiled cannabis flower products in 2019, an second of an ounce of marijuana was around $50. Now you can get the same quality cannabis for as little as $15 for the same amount, while $50 will get you high quality cannabis that is on a level that stuff in 2019 couldn’t hold a candle to when you lay down as well as compare. I’m glad that I can buy marijuana on a budget if I need to or get top shelf if I’m willing to spend a little bit of currency.
