Managed to (finally) get groceries tonight. The biggest pain in the wallet came when I picked up a 28-ounce jar of peanut butter that now cost $6.19. My memory is fuzzy but I know I did not pay over six dollars for my last jar of that size. I think it was $4-something. We had been warned that peanut butter prices would jump because of all the problems with this year’s peanut crop. This is gonna be bad for a peanut butter addict like me.
The other bit of news today was, I was able to assist a co-worker with his car, which had a dead battery. It’s good to have jumper cables. It was also a good excuse to get outside on what turned out to be another nicer-than-average day, weather-wise.
