My husband works in the food industry and they have received some startling news regarding the cost of sugar.  He was told prices can increase to as much as $5 per 5 lb bag of sugar.  When you see a good price on sugar (and I'm guessing a good price for sugar would be less than $2 per bag), I would stock up.  I've been trying to reduce the amount of sugar we consume in our diet by using honey and agave nectar.  However, there are times when sugar will only do.

Thanks for passing on that info about sugar. Have to wonder if the earthquake in Haiti has something to do with this :(

Hi Leah - He got the sugar info about 3 months ago, so I don't think the earthquake had a bearing on it then. Although, it might contribute to it in the future.

Hi Anonymous - You are totally correct! In fact, when I went to Walgreens today, I couldn't figure out why the $10 RR printed! Happy error :)
