Owlhaven put up a very interesting link up on her blog to ET at Titus 2:3-5. It was is interesting to hear what others are paying for gas and grocries so I thought I'd throw some numbers out there.

After going through some old receits I had I was surprized to see how much prices have gone up in the last few months. I don't have all the prices figured out but this is what I have so far.

So, in northern BC...

Gas - $1.269 per litre Canadian (or $4.19 per gallon US)

Milk: $4.19/ gallon (3.66 us)

Eggs -$2.49/ dozen (2.17 us)

10lbs potatoes -$3.99 (3.48us)

Apples -$1.29/lb (1.13 us)


Bananas- $.66/lb (.57 us)

12 oz salad greens- $3.48 (3.04 us)

Cucumber-3 for $3.98 (3.47 us)


Carrots- $3.49 for a 2lb bag (we buy organic baby carrots) (3.04 us)

Ground beef-

Chicken– boneless skinless - $4.49 lb (3.92 us)

1 lb of butter- $3.45 (3.03 us)

tin of coffee- $7.99 for 2 lb (6.97 us) not great coffee but not bad coffee
