I need to move!!!! lol I just got back from the store....6 cake mixes, all Ducan Hines...$1.79 per box!!!!
With tax it's more like $2.00/per box. Before I left the house this morning, I called Wal-mart & asked if they could tell me what their price was on the mixes I needed...after waiting for about 6 minutes, someone came back and told me they were $1.29/each. So considering I have to drive an extra 8-10 minutes, 18 miles or so, through lots & lots of traffic to get to the Wal-mart that never has a parking space that isn't on the "back-forty" of the lot, and I would have a 3 yr old and 11 month old with me....I chose to pay $1.79/each at the grocery store that's near my son's school!!! lol
Also - 2 lb. bags of 10x pwd sugar has gone up to $1.50 here...it used to be $1.09. But the butter has dropped in price by about 30 cents, while milk is up 25 cents or so. There are still a lot of empty shelves at our store, though...especially the sugar shelf! I bought 7 bags of pwd sugar...there were 5 left after that. And it's a good thing I didn't need chocolate, spice, french vanilla, or the golden butter recipe cake mixes....they only had 2 or 3 each of those flavors....I needed lemon and white....thank goodness!! This hurricane sure has screwed things up around here....our prices on everything (& I do mean EVERYTHING) have rocketed due to it being more difficult to get things delivered as usual to the stores....can't wait 'till things get back to normal.
