Has the cost of things gone up for you?

I noticed this only just last week when comparing receipts. I tend to buy the same stuff month to month and I got an exact copy of what I bought on Thursday back in March of 2021. 

The total was $74.87 and now, for the exact same items, it is $112.52! That is $38 more I am spending on groceries and other items per week.

I have not tracked it to the dollar or anything but I know everything has gone up anywhere from 20 cents to several dollars. I take it you are in the US as well? 

I used to get bags of cat litter for $5 and change and now those same bags are $8. The canned food I buy my cats is also up about $8 per case.

I think most things are up at least 10%. 

I can't say I have been tracking everything but I know I am spending an extra chunk of month month to month and it has gone up a lot in the last 6 months.

Yes. I am not sure how much more I am spending month to month but it is at least 15% more which really is starting to effect my budgeting and planning.

Yeah, I think most people noticed prices going up but some places are worse than others. I have had to change my spending habits because of it. I am working on spending less money and shopping more locally now. Since I have to pay more now anyway, I may as well give it to local businesses.

Unfortunately, many items have if not all things. Some are more noticeable than others. Things I buy on a regular basis, I can tell they have went up.

Yes :(

Every few weeks I notice prices going up now. It is getting to a point where I may need to move as my budget is cutting it too close. I spend an extra $300 a month now on groceries, pet food, and other household items.
