    I did notice in my last beer run a sign saying there have been beer shortages in the supply chain. Something to do with aluminum cans. I am stocking up on beer.
    At my main grocery store, a couple of the basic canned items, dried beans, milk has modest increases, deli meats/cheeses, chicken - i.e. breasts, leg family packs - again, increase in the breast meat, modest increase in the family packs of legs, thighs.... these type things. I am seeing "holiday" sales on some of the basics I buy, so they will be my stock-up items this coming week. So far, I haven't spent enough to get the free Thanksgiving turkey, so I'll have to see how the prices are on those.

    I used to shop sales and go to a couple of different stores that had better products or prices for this or that. Any more I go to one store once every week or two and will buy products on sale, but basically want to get in and out. So my grocery bills have been higher, but not because of any noticeable price increases. Then again, I pay less attention to prices. I don't buy meat, so I have no idea on meat prices.

    OMG! That would be a disaster. Thank goodness I have a kegerator. No cans required.

    But seriously, prices on a lot of the stuff we regularly buy seem to be creeping up. For example we buy a lot of the half pound bags of grated cheese. They used to be $2.99 full price for a half pound bag, often on sale for $2.49. Then at the start of covid they went up to $3.49, but could be had on sale for $2.99. This week they were $3.79. I assume sale price will be $3.49. We were out of cheese so I paid $3.79. Same thing with ground turkey, which we also buy frequently. It used to be $4.99/lb full price but $3.99 on sale, now it's $5.99/lb but on sale at $4.99. Everything else we buy, from canned tomatoes to tortillas to store brand spaghetti seems to be following the same trajectory. I maxed out on store brand honey bunches and oats cereal at the beginning of the pandemic for $1.99/box. I haven't looked lately since we still have 8 or 10 boxes, but I assume that it will also be more expensive now.
