see, i knew things were expensive here in Hawaii since everything needs to be imported, but it didn't hit home until tonight, when i bought items i usually ignore at the store - milk, cereal, and eggs (usually i'm just buying frozen stuff, but this week i went all out).
milk - $6.50/gallon
cereal - $5-8/box
eggs - $4.50/dozen
most things have been maybe $1-2 more at most, but these prices are crazy! at these prices i might just keep buying frozen...
