Re: groceries - how much does it cost in your area?

  • Western PA - LCOL

    Whole chickens: 0.89 per lb

    Milk: Gallon is about $3.50 - I don't buy organic

    Ground Beef: $2.39 per lb

    Apples: 1.29 per lb

    Squash: Don't buy this

    OJ: $2.49 for a half gallon

    These are all regular prices.  Sales make the prices lower.

  • whole chickens? hmm..I guess about $.89/pound..? not really sure, I usually don't buy them that often

    milk (organic or non-organic)? we buy non-organic skim and for a 1/2 gallon it is like $2.00 or so

    ground beef (per lb)? $2.40

    apples? not sure..I don't really eat apples

    squash - butternut or acorn? don't eat either

    orange juice? don't really drink OJ either but I'd guess it is probably around $2.50-3.00?
