WOW, and i was just getting into the online orders at walmart..... now im not so sure....lol. at least chewy is still good for the pets.
They need to do some redesign soon. Their prompts are all in the wrong places for easy access to anything. I've discovered some of the "tricks" to it now, but watch at check out for them to pull a switch on you and try to "ship" some things. I'm actually gonna write and complain! lol Just haven't had time yet.

ive noticed a lot more places that are having the complete order page changed in some way. noticed one switch from free shipping to a paid form. notice a couple others do similar things. i watch the final page very carefully now before i hit submit.

I've seen that. Also have seen on some bills a fuel surcharge now being added such as for garbage pick up, etc. (We have a private service for it.)

thats crazy. i havent noticed that yet on regular utilities or bills but property taxes did increase this year by a noticeable amount. and some news articles have said there could be a 30 - 40 % increase in natural gas this winter. isnt inflation lovely...sigh

Oh, I don't even look at beef anymore. Nope. Out of my budget for sure. Pork or chicken I can do if I'm careful. For those of us on fixed incomes, this has hit HARD.

And bacon is high because of the processing, so I don't consider it in the pork family anymore! lol

My taxes almost doubled this year. And we use natural gas to heat so I'm not happy. I do have two space heaters, which may come into play this year.
