Wish my market still had stock boys. I can't outmaneuver the computer at mine. It will update the price between the time I take it off the shelf to the moment it is scanned.

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.


I haven't seen as much of an increase as I thought. But I also haven't bought much flour lately. I found out my son has a gluten allergy so we rarely use it anymore. Gluten free flour is ridiculously expensive anyway so I guess it's all the same to me.
