2014 grocery prices

Clams047 | Dec 31, 201407:28 AM

After five years of a relatively consistent $400/mo for groceries (two seniors in their 60's - including anything typically found at a grocer, including paper goods, personal products, cleaning supplies, etc), our average in 2014 jumped to nearly $500/mo - essentially a 22% increase vs. the previous five year average.

We did make a shift into more protein / greatly reduced starches, adding more fresh fruits & vegetables, but I find it hard to believe that alone could account for such an increase in our overall grocery cost. It seems as though everything went up this past year.
