If I look at food as fuel, I buy smarter
Emotional eating is so much more expensive.
Im no saint, but if I thing it through and plan the shopping, it does pay off.
I have to be vigilant about which store I am at, but I can get by.

unfortunately, the prices listed for foods is quite a bit different in 2017 than it was when this article was written

Once again, I am reminded of things that I already knew but chose to ignore.

Sadly while this is a good list, for people like me it is pretty much useless. After 2 intestinal resections last year I cannot eat Beans or nuts I cannot have whole grains, I cannot have any fresh fruit or vegetable that has skins and/or seeds. I am allergic to eggs and peppers. Pretty much the only foods that are ok for me to eat are not good choices. Still searching for answers but little by little I will build a list of menu's/meal plans that work for me. Something besides yogurt LOL.

Even on the date the prices were updated , these prices were way out particularly for rural NSW Australia. Quote "(Prices from Meijer.com, Cincinnati area, September 2016" End quote . Despite that a lot of the food listed is still cheap compared to other stuff, just not all. The article is a good reminder that simple' real' food is still affordable.

Where do you buy those cheap eggs? Granted I am known to spend crazy amounts of money on farm market eggs (once you taste those deep orange yolks, it's hard to go back) but even when I'm desperate for eggs and buy the cheap ones at CVS, I don't pay less than $2 per dozen. These prices certainly don't reflect what food costs in the NYC area.

I want those prices a half gallon of non-fat milk cost me $4.99 on sale $5.50 when not on sale. Eggs are any where from four to six dollars a dozen. You should update prices to go with what is happening now not eight years ago.

THANK YOU FOR UPDATING THE ARTICLE TO CURRENT, SEPT / 2016 PRICES!

I hope that it will continue to be updated at least annually.

That said - it would have been nice if you'd been a bit more realistic with the "servings" of canned salmon (really - 2 oz per serving? It should be at least 3 oz per serving.) and chicken (3 oz raw isn't a "serving" in my world).

Very true!
Especially compared to costs of eating out.
Or a pack of cigarettes or cans of soda which are totally unnecessary to live.

Can't believe the cheap prices, so much more expensive in Australia.

Even in 2016, I think these prices are very much in line with what I pay, some items I get for even lower prices, such as eggs for $.89 and sometimes $.59. Keep your eyes open for bargains. And I don't have to shop all the "upscale supermarkets" around Raleigh. Aldi's has great prices and good products.

I live in Northern California and I just finished shopping. All the regular food is one price but anything organic or healthy is extremely pricey.....it is very discouraging....
