I don't think it's just me. Is it?
Produce prices EVERYWHERE I go seem high! What are we supposed to do?! When we first made Aliyah, I rarely paid more than 1.50 NIS/kg for a whole bunch of staples - onions, potatoes, cabbage, carrots, tomatoes, even cucumbers and melons. Now - I can't find anything at all for that price!
I know I am just going to have to stick out my chin and pay higher prices. We were doing the calculations - it doesn't pay to drive far to save on fruits and vegetables. Not unless you are buying a LOT. And to be honest, I want to fill up my freezer, but I really don't have the kind of space that would make a drive to save a couple shekels per kilo worthwhile.
So I will have to stick to shopping locally (or convincing my husband to go shopping in Teverya before or after work. But he won't venture into the shuk, so not sure if there will be much of a difference!). And I will have to plan better and be creative with less money.
What are you doing? Are you feeling your grocery bills soaring too?
