KELO News Poll: Grocery Prices
You have to bring home a lot of bacon in order to put food on the table these days.  The cost of buying groceries is eating up a good share of families budgets.

We wrap up our week long look at the ailing economy by heading to the grocery store to find out how shoppers are trimming fat out of their grocery bills. 

If you're looking for the meat and potatoes of why many families are in a financial pinch, look no further than your grocery aisle.

"It's almost four dollars a gallon for milk, it seems a little high," said Kristi Decker. 

Kristi and Ryan Decker are always looking to save money when they grocery shop. 

"Yeah definitely especially if it's something we buy all the time, said Decker. 

According to our KELOLAND News economic online survey, 77% of you say you're doing something to lower your grocery bills. 

"Yeah, we buy a lot of generic brands, mostly generic but there are a few things we are willing to spend a little more for," said Decker. 

Dennis Noding is a thrifty grocery shopper. 

"Basically looking for coupons where you buy one get one free a sales like that," said Noding. 

And that's what a lot of shoppers are doing.

According to our poll, 33% are waiting for sales and cutting back on impulse buying. 28% of you are buying generic,

27% are buying fewer items, and 25% are clipping coupons. 

Noding likes to make a list and stick to it. Plus... 

"Buy only what I need and cheaper brands if I can or the Hy-Vee brands versus the national brand," said Noding.
