  • Are you concerned about inflation yet?

    I’m starting to be. Mostly because I went to Target and picked up a couple of staple toiletries that I haven’t bought in several months. The store brand contact lens solution was $5.99 for two 12-oz. bottles – up from about $4.34 at the beginning of January. Neutrogena body wash (the orange kind with salicylic acid) was also $5.99. It was $4.99 the last time I bought a bottle.

    Plus MetaMommy tells me that the price of flour is rising dramatically. Add that to the rising cost of milk and eggs, and we’re talking noticeable budget adjustments.

    I’ll post about how to cope with these rising costs after I’ve gotten some sleep.
