Maybe you’ve noticed that prices at the super market have been rising faster than our incomes.
Here in the mountains you’ll pay $3.38 for a 6 ounce bag of spinach. That is just over $9 a pound. Take a walk over to the salad bar and there’s a bin of spinach that is $4.99 per pound. Even taking into account the plastic salad container is heavier than the bag the spinach comes in, you’re saving over $3.75 a pound. That’s enough to buy a cup of coffee at the Starbucks that they have in an Ingles. Tell me that ain’t class?
