I hadn't been "out" in a while. Went out with my sister. Had some food and drinks. I want to scream about my drink costing 20$. Had a glass of house wine/w one shot of vodka. I could have bought a bottle of wine or cheap Vodka for that. The mark up is robbing us. Everything has gone up in price since I've hybernated. What can/will do about this? Hub and I were talking about how much vehicles/machinery has gone so high. When just 8 years ago, we bought 2 tractors for landscaping at 50k ea. Now they're 150k. Whose getting that bump? It isn't the farmers or business using it...and don't talk about groceries. Three people here, gro bill 1000$ a month. Yes I cook every day and we don't eat steaks or junk either. If it get's any worse, we can't make it. Not at all!
