Expect to keep paying more for groceries in 2022. According to data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics earlier this month, prices shoppers paid for groceries in October were 5.4% higher than at the same time last year. K-State Research and Extension nutrition specialist Sandy Procter says planning meals before shopping, being aware of what you already have, looking for bargains, substituting lower-priced items for similar products, and planning for leftovers helps stretch food dollars while still providing healthful meals.
