I was wondering where you were getting your prices from. If it's cheapness you're looking for, I think you should have went to Kroger instead of Meijer. $1.89 for a dozen eggs? That is expensive, $1.99 for a gallon of milk? Also a little pricey. It's cheaper at Kroger! Or even if you have an Aldi in your town, you can shop there!

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.
