Why is this??

I ran to the commissary today to grab a few items. I thought I was splurging when I bought this box of muffins for my kids to snack on; apparently I was wrong.

This very small bag of potatoes cost me MORE THAN a huge box of muffins.

I really don't understand how a small 3lb bag of locally grown potatoes can cost me $6.50; that is insane. THEY ARE POTATOES PEOPLE! Yes, I have read the news articles trying to explain why our gas/food prices are so high. I have to tell you though, I don't buy it(no pun intended)! When I am reduced to buying unhealthy pre-packed food items for my kids because they are so much cheaper than whatever we can grow in the dirt, or on a tree or vine I "think we have a problem Houston."

Grrr. Rant Over. For Now.
