Kansas City, Mo. — Can you even believe the price of groceries?! There’s a study out that found chicken, beef and bacon prices have jumped around 20-percent since 2011. Yikes!! Don’t even get met started about fresh fruits and veggies!

After this week’s haul I can’t believe we have any grocery money left for next week’s shopping trip. Before you take a look at the list, it’s going to take some work.
