And the beat goes on.
Really? Here they both seem to cost the same no matter what!

Yep, really. In fact, the price of gasloine dropped a few cents a gallon here last week, and the price of milk jumped to $5.70 for two 1 gallon jugs.

Went to Wally World today.

10 pounds of King Arther unbleached AP is still $5.12

I bought 50 pounds.

Two weeks ago I got a 50 of Saffire from the vendor, cost $30.

?

Wart, that's a GREAT price. Are you freezing it? Our WM doesn't carry KAF, but a local grocer does and my plan is to buy out the shelf, vac-seal and freeze it.

To stay on topic, 5 lbs at a different grocer was $4.29 this week (King Arthur unbleached AP)

That 50 pounds KA will probably be gone in six weeks at the most. I got the sapphire going on 3 weeks ago and less than 1/4 is left. Probably won't last through the weekend. So there isn't much sense in freezing the KA. I will put it in a large ziplok though.


It seemed as though none of the flours at the Super WW had a price increase.

Since I have room in a freezer .... Get it while you can?


On T:

Anyone else seeing the middle class becoming the new 'working poor'?

Looks like I might as well buy a supply of flour. Now that the colder weather is starting to move in I will be going through more bread, eating it with soups, stews and other "dunkin'" foods.
And Robin Hood or Pillsbury flour is on sale this week; 5-5 lb bags for $10. That's a pretty good deal even if I do use KA flour.

I'm set for awhile, having bought a 50 lb bag of unbleached bread flour and 50 lb bag of unbleached AP.

I don't know if one of these brands makes a bread flour, I hope so, but if not I'll just get real good at making crusty bread

Stopped by my local market last night and the kid was standing in front of the flour with a price gun. I asked what he was doing, and he said "raising the price of the flour like I was told to do." Before he could start changing prices I grabbed 25 lbs of bread and 25 lbs of AP and put them in my cart. He said "Hey, you can't do that. I didn't change the price yet." My reply was "I just did, young man. I just did."

Went up $.40 per 5lb bag. At least I'm set for 4-6 weeks. I don't have more room, or I would have bought more flour.
