Current Food Prices in Ohio #2

I saved my receipts from November 23rd to March 5th to track the rising costs of food at my local Aldi and Kroger, and I've added in Walmart.  I blogged about my Oct-Nov prices already but this is the next update covering the next 3 months.  I've highlighted in yellow the price increases and in green those that decreased in price.  Not a lot of price increases for us yet.  However, the problem for us lately is finding what we need, as there has been a lot out of stock and then we have to buy higher-priced items at Kroger.  Also, some items I haven't bought since the last price list, so I don't know what their current price is.
