I just paid $5 for a loaf of bread.
This wasn't some fancy, hand-sculpted, rustic artisan bread, but whole wheat from my fave Island Bakery. I knew it was coming. Gas is nearly $4 a gallon, a latte can run that high, too.
I wish I could be more like my pal No Sluggo Dave and make my own, but I have always been flour-phobic. Still, it might be time to try to get in touch with my inner Nana once again.
How about you? What's the single most shocking price hike you've seen lately?
