Grocery Shopping

I went grocery shopping yesterday, and did it ever hurt.  I have a journal that I kept in 1962 and one page I had listed prices of some of things I needed for the weeks groceries.
                   Then                Now
Chicken  --     .29 a pound      1.39 a pound
Eggs             .55 a dozen      1.93 a dozen
Coffee           .41 a pound      5.91 a pound
Sugar            .06 a pound        .68 a pound
Cheerios        .25 a box          1.68 a box on sale
Potatoes        .39-10 pounds   3.88 - 10 pounds

Ah for the good old days!
