In 2001 my property was 400sq feet now it's 5600sq feet, what a difference 8 years makes.
I like how this became the "half guard pays too much for milk" thread.

A donut at the grocery store now costs 70 cents. I am morally opposed to paying nearly a dollar for a donut. I used to pay a quarter. I also used to pay a quarter for a bagle, which has now jumped to $1.29. Bread is almost $2 a loaf for the store brand that used to be 99 cents. The price of a case of soda is steadily wearing away at the once unbridgeable gap between it and the price of a case of beer. Grocery shopping is depressing.

Of course, everything goes up with inflation over an 8 year period, but everything except food has gone up with a modest increase; whereas groceries have jumped through the roof.
