    Groceries still cost $10 a sack, the only thing is the sacks are a lot smaller and emptier.

    When I was young in the early 1960’s. I remember shopping with my Mom. We filled two carts mounding top and bottom. I remember my Mom exclaiming that it was the first time she ever spent $30 on groceries.

    The bad news is you need 5 or 6 sacks, $50 or $60 a trip

    So I recall. However, my first real punch a time clock job was in 1962. $1.47 per hour. Lots of things have changed.

    In p.4 at first glance before reading, I thought the table was full of rabbits.

    And they do like their plastic sacks there. If I buy five items they find a way to put it in six bags.

    How utterly silly. You can still get rich without rich parents. The greatest part of America if you ask me. Of course, you have to work for it. That throws a lot of people.

    Just express everything in nickel candy bar equivalents. Gas was 6 NCB in 1968 and now it’s only 5!

    Krogers here in Michigan has, cleverly, found a way to take your mind off the rising food costs by giving points toward the purchase of gasoline. I, usually, manage to get .60-.70 cents off per/gallon every month. But, that equates to spending at least $700 per/month for food! Oh well, still gotta eat.
