ILiveInFlipFlops Posted September 25, 2012 Share Posted September 25, 2012 This is decidedly unscientific, and I know prices can vary based on good sales, but I'm wondering generally how much some basic food items cost around you. Can anyone list the cost of some basic food items they buy? Organic or not, doesn't matter. I'm just wondering what people are paying. I feel like I live in a high COL area, and for housing, it's very true. But WRT food and gas, I think maybe we're on the lower end. So here are some prices I can think of off the top of my head (and people can list different things): Half gallon of organic milk: $3.89 Whole organic chicken: $2.89 a pound ($2.59 a pound through our farm co-op) Whole conventional chicken: $1.69 a pound 1 lb. box of organic mixed-greens salad: $5.99/6.99 5-lb bag of brand-name white (wheat) flour: $2.99 Regular unleaded gas: $3.79 a gallon (:svengo:) Also, do you feel like you live in a high COL area or a low one?
