Grocery prices giving you a scare? 😱👻

Fall decor isn’t the only thing frightening us lately. Even in the fall of 2022, inflation is still causing the price of everything to spike, and rising food prices are no exception. So, it begs the question: how DO you save money on groceries nowadays?

What’s even scarier is that while grocery prices are leaving us with empty wallets, you’re just as likely to walk away from the store empty-handed thanks to empty shelves across the nation.

Here’s why experts say we’re seeing rising food prices and empty shelves:

Since June 2021, grocery prices have risen by 10.4% (the largest increase since 1981). This is largely in part due to low inventory thanks to supply chain issues, shipping delays, and staffing shortages.

However, other factors such as the effects of COVID-19 on the economy, bad weather, poor crop yields, and strong demand have all contributed to this rise. Unfortunately, there’s no end in sight to this trend of rising food prices.

Grocery pick-up and not having to take kids shopping with me that way I only get what is needed. – Angela

Buy a whole or half of a cow from a farmer. – Alisha

Use your freezer! Put leftovers in the freezer instead of the fridge. Can still warm up, if needed for lunches, but lasts much longer and can be used for meals on busy nights. – Beth

Meal plan around grocery store sales. Put snacks up high so kids can’t plow through them every 5 minutes 😂 – Christina

    Farmer’s markets are far more expensive than grocery stores in my area.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Darn! Thanks for letting us know!

      • Mia

        My local farm stand that I’ve been having a CSA out for the past five years I pre-paid for this coming year last year for a full share. I have been Blanching freezing dehydrating half of it every year to save for the winter months. This past winter I started hydroponics indoors and I have not had to purchase lettuce in months, My cherry tomatoes have taken off so that will be a big expense I will not have to purchase. It can be done you just have to be a little creative.

    • Sue

      Technically things at a farmer’s market can last longer than grocery stores because they are fresher. Produce sits on the truck and warehouses before sitting again at the grocery store.

      I don’t have EBT, but many of farmer’s markets reduce the cost to 1/2 price for them if they use it.

      I agree Aldi can have cheaper prices for produce, but it also makes me nervous with all the recalls on their greens.

    • siena95

      Was just gonna post this, farmers markets are way more expensive ( Portland, or)

  2. Lori

    Canned cat food is almost impossible to find here. It’s like a treasure hunt. I get way too excited when I do find some 😆

    • linfun

      Same here! My elderly neighbor passed away and she had 5 outdoor cats that I have been trying to care for and I can’t find canned food! I feed them mostly dry food but the cans are a treat now and then. No one would believe me until I started taking pictures of the empty shelves!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      YES! It sure is! I was thinking the same thing. I did ask an associate in Walmart the other week to look up in their system when the next shipment of the cat food we need would be stocked. They were able to give me a date so that I could come back to check on it when they have it! You may also have luck at your local Tractor Supply if you have a location near you. Hoping this is helpful!

  3. Mollie

    There wouldn’t be this bad of a increase in groceries, if the farmers were getting what they’re asking. Cattle prices are low, but feeding, fuel,etc. have increased tremendously. The dairy cattle are low and the shipping process is another story. My sister and her husband farm 5000 acres of cotton. The increase in fuel, diesel, gas, and anything else that is used on a farm has doubled for them. Yet when you go to the Cottongin it doesn’t pay squat.

    • ToriSC

      Most of our food is controlled by a few small foreign controlled corporations. Not the farmers but the processors. They are the ones making all of the money & controlling the prices. But that’s how a capitalistic economy works.

      • VA

        You are correct that the majority of our food supply is controlled by a few gigantic mega corporations. The WEF and the UN want to be able to tell us what we can grow, eat, and do with our own lives and are using their paid off political hacks to bring this plan to fruition. They are intentionally causing the price of fertilizer to rise, the continous lockdowns to continue that bring about major supply disruptions and food shortages, etc. It is called UN Agenda 2030 or the Great Reset, look it up you are living it now.
        This however has nothing to do with capitalism and more to do with government intervention, and the ridiculous taxes and regulations farmers or anyone else has to pay to keep, run, and continue to operate in a fiscally sound manner. Socialism and fascism in practice is causing our crises. Foolish anti free market socialists in government do not want small, family run farms and businesses to remain operational because they can not be controlled. Capitalism=Abundance and Freedom, Socialism = Shortages and Misery.

    • jigna

      Yes Mollie. I do feel for farmers. I hope government is able to help out with subsidies to our farmers. Please keep doing what you are. I am doing my part. We will make us strong again. 🤗

  4. Susan

    Do you have any plans to put the coupon database back on Hip2Save? I used to use it weekly and find myself using less coupons now that it is unavailable.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Susan! We had to remove it due to some technical issues it was causing with the site but we do hope to have it up and running again soon! 🙌💖

    • Lana and have a data base you can use

      • Susan

        I don’t know why I didn’t already know has coupon database. Thank you very much for this info. (I had malicious malware try to get on to my coupon using southernsavers database years ago. I’m sure it’s fixed now but I don’t use that one anymore).

      • jigna

        Have noticed that most of the printable coupons are for non food items. I could find close to 50 to 60 food related coupons before. Now rarely 20 food related coupons are available.

    • Marinova

      Same that was a fave feature of this site years ago. What brought me here vs other sites

  5. Tera

    I’ve been looking for dill pickle slices for months, and OJ has been MIA for the past 4 weeks. What worries me, though, is chicken feed. Hoping to find some today.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hoping you find some soon too, Tera! 💖🤞

    • Gail

      I’ve been making overnight refrigerator pickles and they’re so good. So many recipes online for them. My stores don’t seem to have shortages on cucumbers. 😊

  6. Jackie

    Spaghetti, I haven’t found spaghetti in like 2 months. Meat…insane! I used to be able to get ground beef for $2.99/lbs 70/30 now I can’t find any less than $5.99/lbs and I’m from Kansas a meat state!!! Going to the groceries makes me sick every time 😩. Go in for just a few things and come out paying over $100 every single time. With a family of 5 it honestly makes it hard to do this and I don’t see any light at the end of the tunnel

    • SavingsMama

      Omg yes. I used to qualify for assistance. I secured a better job but make just over the threshold. Now with the higher grocery prices, I’m in more debt than when I was lower income. Please try and help each other the best you can. It’s all we can do!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Ugh! I feel your pain, Jackie. I was having trouble getting spaghetti for a while too, but did find a big bulk box at my local BJ’s. 💖

  7. Dee

    There’s plenty of food at the grocery store, just not always exactly the brand or item I might be looking for. When we can’t find fresh chicken breasts, we buy chicken thighs or frozen chicken breasts. My cat will eat both wet and dry cat food and has adjusted. I think about the rationing my parents went through in World War 2 (dairy, meat, coffee, oils and gasoline) and wonder if anyone today could handle the sacrifices made by that entire generation. When I keep that in mind, I don’t get upset about an item being out.

    • ToriSC

      Keep in mind that the effects of both shortages and inflation take time to take effect. Shipping & manufacturing are not an instant process. Neither are price increases. What we are seeing now has been years in the making. You don’t plant a seed today and it turns into spaghetti tomorrow.

  8. Ariavenew

    Keep food pantries in mind if and when you do find grocery deals and have a little wiggle room in your own budget. Your donations help those who can’t absorb these price increases.

  9. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    You’re SO very welcome, Dott. 🥰

  10. Crystal

    This has been hard on my daughter. She has autism and with it only likes certain brands of certain foods. I have had a lot of conversations trying to convince her that brand A is the same as brand B or even hiding brand B inside of a brand A bag. I hit up 3 different grocery stores just to full fill my shopping list each week.

    • Kat9919

      I understand – I have a son with autism that is the exact same way. It’s hard to find the foods we CAN get him to eat!

  11. Faith

    In the past my husband would get aggravated by me trying to stock up on certain items. I can say now he understands and even appreciates the fact that I stock-up. I didn’t even have a hard time getting him to make a special trip to the grocery store when they Ibotta offered the free items for the super bowl. Couponing is a key in for us as my husband is a full-time student getting his degree to become a pastor. All I can say is “Thank You” hip2save team for always helping us with finding great deals.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re very welcome, Faith! Thanks for so much for the sweet comment! 💞🥰

  12. tas

    If you can get to your local grocery stores early enough to find out when they put out their discounted meats and breads/bakery goods, DO IT! It has saved my family SOOO much money. We freeze bread, butter, meat, sliced cheese…if it’s an excellent deal and I know it’s going to get used w/in 2-3 months, we freeze it.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks a ton for the helpful tip! 🙌

  13. Coupon Mama

    I have been a couponer for over 10 years and I am also on disability. I also get food stamps and they were lowered recently because of the government’s small cost of living increase! I used to be able to get more than enough food. Now I can’t have dairy (with a few exceptions) or gluten and I am a Type II diabetic. Also with the cost of non food items going up thing have gotten very difficult across the board. Where I live Kroger is still the best place to shop as far as sales and coupons. Food Lion would be the next runner up leaving Walmart in 3rd place. We live at least an hour from Publix or Aldi. I have never been to either store. Thing have really gotten bad as far as this is concerned and that is not even discussing what the stores do not have on their shelves!

  14. Kathryn

    Shopping for someone with food allergies is an even bigger challenge now!

    • Deb

      It is the worst! When you are allergic to most of the items and have to buy brand/store specific it is horrible when they are out.

  15. JuJu

    Rice Chex cereal is very hit and miss. And I think Kroger had stopped making their more affordable version (Rice Bitz) too.

  16. Lana

    We shop Aldi first and then one other store for what we did not find at Aldi. The second store depends on the ads and what we want to pick up that trip. Then we come home and put what we could not get on next week’s list. Since we have always kept a well stocked pantry we can always find something to substitute.

    A huge saver for us is discount grocery stores in our are such as Grocery Outlet. We buy other short dated food for very little. Google discount grocery and see what you can find. Have an open mid. Many of these stores are located in less desirable areas of town but we always find them to be clean and well organized. Oddly enough they often have what all the other stores are out of.

    • Jeanette

      Yes for grocery outlet and close to date buys!!!!! So much cheaper and great to stock up on meats for the freezer.

  17. Christine

    Cat food is the worst. My cats love Friskies but it’s hard to find it anymore and in some stores it’s over $1 a can. I haven’t seen coupons for Friskies in a couple of years. I was buying Aldi’s cat food but they have been out too. I have been buying sardines in water and jack mackerel from Dollar Tree and whatever canned cat food that I can find on Amazon. I also bought a book on cooking for your cats, and I’m thinking that will be next if I can’t find cat food.

    • Kate

      If you have a Winco near you, bulk dry catfood is .49 lb

  18. Jen

    Anyone else notice that the “store brand” generic of certain items has either gone out of stock or disappeared altogether? For instance, Aldi’s fat free cream of soups were MIA for months, just saw some on the shelf last week. Kroger seems to have discontinued store-brand canned pasta (ravioli, etc.) and cake mixes/brownie mixes, which were staples for us. Can’t find those items in the actual Kroger store *OR* at Ruler Foods, their discount store.

    • Donica2013

      Yes. Walmart brand cream cheese & other great value brands are always out of stock here.

    • T.Cooper

      Kroger brand non dairy creamer is all I use. Couldn’t find it fir several months. When it finally hit the shelves again my little bottle of creamer went from $1.99 to $3.29. Makes me so frustrated.

  19. Blue

    I haven’t been able to find Era Laundry detergent anywhere. It’s the only brand that gets hydraulic fluid, diesel fuel, dirt, manure out of our clothes.

  20. shey59

    I suppose it’s the best time ever for me being vegan, no one wants that stuff lol. I have went back to couponing at Walgreens for essentials which has helped.

    • Marie

      Happy to be a vegetarian! Haven’t noticed a big increase on lentils or beans yet.

      • Patricia Lavenz

        My brother cooks lentils and rice in his rice cooker. It is always bland. What seasonings do you recommend?

        • Marie

          I’ve never used a rice cooker, but I’ve used an Instant Pot which is similar.

          I look for recipes that include seasoning recommendations. For example, one of my favorite recipes cooks lentils in vegetable broth with salsa, taco seasoning, onions and garlic. It cooks up and makes an excellent taco filling!

          • Patricia Lavenz

            Thanks. I can use the vegetable broth but I can’t use the salsa or taco seasoning. Taco seasoning is to spicy (one has crohns and we all have acid reflux and heartburn) and neither one of my brothers will eat tomatoes. Thanks. I was looking for real seasonings like oregano etc.

  21. Suz in OH

    I tend to shop sales/use coupons and keep several months’ supply on hand of most items. Fortunately, Kroger extended one of their sale promotions an extra week recently after my first time by the store. At least 5 items I wanted were not available and substituted items would cost me more than the ones on sale. I shop no more than once per week to conserve gas but I was able to get back to the store during the extended time to get some items at the better price. What really concerns me is that it seems as if every item previously priced at $1 has been increased to $1.25, so a 25% increase on those items. It still is amazing to me that the cream cheese section is nearly empty every time I go in.

    • candie

      Just a thought about shopping at Kroger. In my area they do give rain checks, but not for the weekly digital deals. i have told the manager they should because they will get the item in. Usually in a couple of days after sale ends. They have not bought in to that yet. LOL The last time I had several items i wanted, I did a store pickup order. You can chose to select substitutions on each item. If they substitute, the substituted item will cost the same as the item that is on sale. i.e. They had 5lb. bags of potatoes for !.49. They were out of stock, so they gave me a 10 lb. bag for $2.99. i try to do this on day one of sale.

      • Susie

        That’s a good idea! The main problem with pickup ordering for me is when they have a “Buy 5 or more items, Get $1 each item” sale. If they’re out of stock and try to substitute for you, it’s often a substitute item that’s not part of the sale. Just something to keep in mind. They do the best they can so no complaints! I have started going inside more often so I have a little more control.

      • Joanne

        I got the same 10-pound substitute for the potatoes that week! The Kroger pickup tip is what I wanted to suggest as well. I get substitutes for items often, and it is typically the same brand with a larger size for the lower price. This week, I bought a 16 ounce box of frozen mozzarella sticks for the Super Bowl, and they substituted for the same brand, but a 53 ounce box that cost more than double the price. I am almost always very happy with their substitutions, and I’m grateful for that service being offered.

  22. Krissy

    At our local Walmart gatorade, chicken, pasta, and frozen potatoes have been in short supply. Sometimes paper plates, dairy and eggs are an issue too. A local supermarket chain just announced that will stop doubling manufacturers coupons this week. Coupons seem to be more trouble than they are worth anymore We!
    On a positive note, we have found ourselves being better stewards of our leftovers which is a great thing 😊

    • ToriSC

      Just think less waste is not only good for the pocketbook but the environment as well as it’s not hitting the garbage.

      • Patricia Goff

        Most of our leftovers end up in the dogs stomach. LOL Now the cat wants to see if she wants it too. The dogs have to wait for her to check it out.

  23. Dena

    I’m always stunned that milk costs more than a gallon of gas. Are we at war with the cows?!? I just joined Sam’s Club because I got a Groupon so I got a free membership. I normally shop at Walmart down the aisles and for Dairy. I go to a more expensive store that’s local in New York. It’s a more expensive store but if I don’t shop down the aisles and I just follow the sales I get a way better quality on my produce, fruit and meat and it cost me a lot less than even Wallmart would cost me! But I did the pricing between Sam’s and Walmart and there’s really not a difference other than a couple of cents once you break down the amounts and prices. Just keep following the sales. So when chicken breasts boneless and skinless are $1.49 a pound or $1.99 a pound it’s worth it to get more and then freeze them. Try to do the same with everything when it goes on sale now because prices are going to continue to go up.

  24. Mommyof51987

    I know, Our grocery budget is honestly non existent. WE buy only meat and produce and dairy and our meat prices are out of control. We have yet to have supply issues but I have a panic attack going to to the store. Literally two days ago I was creating my grocery list with prices and two days later prices have increased. 5 dozen eggs used to be 5.99 and now it is over $11 in my area. How are we expected to feed our families?! I am honestly considering not buying milk for my kids so I can afford to buy other food items. That is ridiculous. We could afford to buy our family groceries without worries a year ago and now every month is a struggle. Even with sales, deals and coupons money is so tight.

    • Christina

      Take a gallon of milk & 2 empty milk jugs. Make up 1 gal w/nonfat dry milk. Mix 1/2 of the nonfat dry milk batch w/1/2 gal of regular milk (makes it where you don’t get that nasty aftertaste of just making nonfat dry milk into a gallon by itself). Now you have 2 gallons of milk instead of the 1 gal @ almost $5/gal. Just need to find a good deal on the nonfat dry milk mix or sometimes the local food bank will also give you some in stuff they give you as well.

  25. Csandst1

    Between Aldi, Walmart BJ’s and Amazon, I find what I need. I don’t buy beef anymore, especially roasts. A chuck roast to feed the 4 of us is $25 or more. It shrinks so much there’s no leftovers. Too expensive for one meal. I don’t buy bacon anymore or bell peppers. Never did I think I’d see the day where meatloaf or pot roast would be a treat.

    Coupons don’t save much money for me. Generic is almost always cheaper. Cost of Sunday newspapers negate the savings of coupons. I haven’t been able to find free newspapers on a regular basis. DT doesn’t regularly have the Sunday paper.

    YouTube has good videos on emergency meal plans. These wee very helpful when my husband was unemployed for two years.

    • Sue

      I am lucky if I use 1 coupon a month. I remember in the past using at least 10 a week. Generic brands are big with us too (& always have been.) And since I don’t buy a lot of store brands, I don’t get a lot of savings using Ibotta either. I used to pay for a newspaper on the weekends only, but they raised the price 10% over last year (on top of 10% last year as well) so I didn’t renew my subscription. I wasn’t even using the coupons I got; I would just pass them on to my mom.

      • Chrissy Goff

        Using sales and coupons I usually get name brand cheaper than store brand at Kroger. I have cut down on what I buy though. I no longer buy things to donate unless it is free or almost free after coupons.

  26. Alyshia

    Our area in WA seems to be out of bottled water. Which is fine, I can refill bottles and use the tap! I just like to have it for on the go for car trips.
    Oh and we are low on kitty litter! 😬 I’ve had to switch my brands. I’ve been finding cat food, thankfully, but now I’ll make sure to grab another bag when I’m out next! 🐈

  27. Tricia Miller

    Around my area, Fritos a favorite snack at my house, has gotten impossible to find lately anywhere. About the last 3 months actually. It’s a sad day when Frito pies are not on the menu anymore. 😫

  28. Carol

    Cat food has trippled in price in the last few months. It breaks my heart because a vast number of people who are willing to adopt cats are elderly and on SS.
    I already make all of my dog’s food. It’s cheaper and healthier than canned. But my cat’s 20 years old and I am afraid to change much.

  29. Kara

    Mealime app
    My cost is around 50 to 75 a week for 5 dinners feeding a family of with enough for 1-2 lunches. Some weeks it’s as low as $35
    Use the Mealime app
    It is free and you select all your meals for the week. It then combines everything into a grocery list and you can then click items you do not need. You then click go shopping and it will take you to Walmart and you can do curbside pick up of all the items.
    Meals take 30 to 40 minutes to make
    There is minimal waste
    There is no odd items
    Gives you ideas for substituting items
    You can add additional items that you need for the week

    • Chrissy Goff

      My picky eaters won’t eat most foods on those meals. No tomatoes, no beans, no corn, no peas, no pork, no peppers, no meat with bones, etc. No spaghetti unless it is chicken spaghetti. LOL One brother has crohns and the other is challenged so no argument works….

  30. Julia Meehan Howard

    Amazon is consistently canceling my S&S orders because they’re out of stock so they’re definitely not reliable. I’m not sure if the local to my area but 2 apps that can help save are Flashfood and TooGoodToGo

  31. Mary

    Cat food is had to find here. My cat goes nuts for fresh cooked chicken livers, Freeze them fresh, then saute and then chop them up them when you need them. Cooked livers will last in frig 2-3 days in zip-lock. Better for cats then chemical dry food – cheaper too.

  32. LuckyDuck

    You can also use discounted gift cards to pay for items. I buy discounted Instacart, Target, Sams Club, and Walmart gift cards from apps like Raise and CardCash or the CardCookie site. I get notifications from CardBear when gift cards for my favorites are discounted above a certain rate.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Great idea, LuckyDuck! Thanks for sharing how you save! 🥰

  33. Lisa

    This may sound counterintuitive, but walk through your grocery store to find hidden sales/clearance items. For example, my local grocery store will put a clearance items at the bottom of a particular freezer section. There’s no sign, you just have to know where to look. They also have a certain location for refrigerated items that are 50/75% off, there’s a shelving unit out of the way with pantry clearance items, and throughout the aisles if you keep an eye out, you’ll see clearance items. Just stocked up on name brand cat litter that was 75% off. We haven’t had any pet food shortages in my area and right now most cat dry food is 50% (unadvertised).

    Being vegan helps as we’re not buying expensive meat.

    Finally, be sure to sign up for your store’s app. At my grocery store they advertise that they have coupons on the app, but it’s not just an amount off certain products, but they often have coupons like $5 off $25 that you can add to your account and you rack up points just for shopping that can be turned into $$ off like credit card points.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for sharing your tips, Lisa! My local grocery store is similar to the sale/clearance set-up you were describing, so I always go to those areas first! 🙌💕

  34. Andrea

    I was glad to see a few vegans/plant-based chiming in. I recommend experimenting with tofu. Everyone one has had gross tofu, but once you learn a few secrets to changing the texture, you might be surprised how versatile it is. (And CHEAP!!). My main suggestions: 1.) only buy organic tofu. Not much more expensive but there is all sorts of weird crap in non-organic soy beans. 2.) Press it before cooking. Look that up. Easy and makes all the difference. 3.) You can crumble it up and make an easy sub for taco meat/taco salad. That is a good place to start. There is a fantastic and free tofu 101 course on line at You will learn great recipes and lots of confidence for using tofu. Don’t knock it until you try it! Bon appetite!

    The buying a half cow reminds of the I love Lucy episode lol. But on a serious note, I Shop weekly to catch all the ‘good’ sales at Shoprite. Freeze what I can. I but my meats usually at Hannaford because they seem to generally be cheaper. ( I’m in NY) the prices here are more than a lot of places and it doesn’t even make sense. I will follow the sales on a Shoprite blog out of New Jersey and the deals they show are not even close to the ny Hudson valley prices. It’s disgusting. So, I do the best I can. I think about every item I buy. Is this cheaper at another store? I make things that I can have for 3 meals and freeze them. Lasagna, chili, breakfast burritos. So, for example if I find burrito wraps at a very good price, I’ll buy extra and make things I can freeze w/them. Homemade soup goes further than canned price wise and you can also freeZe that. I trade coupons ( what few there are) with friends across the country thru the mail. You can also trade meals with friends. My sister in law will make desserts for her fam , I’ll make chili for mine and we trade some extras.

  38. Teresa

    On Wednesday or Thursday I go to my Flipp app and look at all the grocery store adds, with paper and pen in hand I write down all the things that are on sale that I am interested in buying, then I compare prices of all the things I want to buy, I get all the coupons that I can, look at hip2save also, I go shopping on Friday’s when all the sales are going on witch takes me a few hours, but it’s well worth the extra time. Also if there is a holiday coming up the store will have a lot of sales and that’s when I really stock up.
    I hope this helps all of you people that are on a budget. HAPPY SHOPPING
