president cant do sh1t bruh, only congress can set price ceilings and there are way too many "freedom" loving republicans to ever get something like that through.

Start shopping where the Chinese shop. I don’t ever see Chinese people at big box stores. Usually everything is fresh.

African markets
Indian markets
Chinese

And buy accessories (soap, shampoo, paper towels etc) by bulk.

Cop household items off temu

And most importantly make more money at all costs.
You don’t know about the Costco in Sunset Park lol. But I feel you. Cultural markets usually have their low-key imports too. Less sugar in the ketchup kinda sh1t. My wife and I get our Jamaican seasonings right on Nostrand.

And started homesteading after Covid. Don’t think I could ever go back to “normal” life.

Automobile Market will soon follow...Alot of cars are reportedly sitting on the lots or being Repo'd due to consumers not being able to no longer afford them!
This will be good for me as I havent owned a Car for several years now, yet Ive been able to save enough money to purchase one Brand new when Im Good and ready!
Ive been researching the best Techniques to negotiate a good Deal and I plan to use them!
same here, moved to a city with good public transit and enough ubers and taxis. Even on my busiest months its still way cheaper than a car note, gas, and insurance.

Can’t support the Temu movement. Pushing our funds to China ain’t the answer in addressing our issues stateside.
I hear what you are saying but a lot of sh1t comes from China anyway.

emoji


Spots like Temu are essentially direct-to-consumer platforms. You're essentially buying directly from the manufacturer and cutting out the middleman.

Of course, there are items that will run you the same as far pricing goes but there's a lot of stuff that can be had for significantly cheaper with the same if not better quality than the stuff you'd buy in store.

emoji


A Turkish bath towel set in Costco would run me $55. However, that same set or one similar would be $25. Same thread count, softness, and everything for less than 1/2 the price.

You have the drawback of the waiting process but who can wait 3-4 days for delivery in order to save $30?

Wait...but the Biden people said it was TRUMPS fault and that Biden was dealing with it the best he could after he ruined the planet.

Sooo ..it was never an issue to begin with; just another weak demoncratic clown in office with no backbone to do anything about it.

Now some of these other memes I've seen are starting to make more sense.





I'm beginning to see a trend of knowing who to play with and who not.

i don't understand op's headline wording. "been gouging ya'll all along"? were you somehow receiving special treatment and were exempt from the higher prices we all endured?

and we've been saying its 'greedflation' and 'shrinkflatiion' since like '21.

so what exactly are you insinuating other than the price cuts?

Wal-Mart became the most expensive retail store in the last two years. Every thing in there doubled in price. Even Target is less expensive.


We only use Costco or Amazon and try to find necessities on Temu that aren’t complete garbage

actually the price gauging started during trumps term during covid.
and was then used as the right wings excuse to blame biden for the inflation.
and now that its going down they will down play it or move on to the next made up issue. but our gvt allows whatever their donners want to do no matter whos in office.

Been using the Subways, Busses, Rails, Taxis and Rentals when I need to drive...I may need a Rental this weekend!

But yea...I just refuse to be a Slave for car payments, and Thanks!

Facts! I took my wife to pick her car up after the routine maintenance was done a month or so ago.

We pulled into the dealership and the staff was literally standing outside in front of the building.

One cat raced over to the car and opened the door for my wife and everything. They thought we were there to buy a new car but when my wife said she's just picking her car up you could see the disappointment in their faces.

One cat said, "Man, its like the walking dead for car sales now."

Just waiting to cop that new Lexus SUV that just dropped when it gets ugly in a few months

I mean sh1t at this point you're talking about an extra $500 a month at least. That's a good cushion to have every month.

Sheesh...Sucks for the Dealers, but at the same time they were living the Phat-Life since the pandemic and the Market inevitably has to Correct itself!

When I walk into the Dealership, I plan to have a Pre-Approved Loan Straight from the Bank AND the Cash to buy Outright so All the odds will be in my Favor...It will either be a Robbery or Nothing!

Facts!!! Just peep the Kellogg's boycott that was trending few weeks back, It was beginning to really have an impact as stores couldn't move enough cereal boxes to the point that mfs were nearly giving them away at $1-2 i'm talking PRE-COVID prices or having deals like "Buy milk get 1 free cereal".

I think this is part of why they're fighting to ban tik-tok, Just imagine if something on a mass-scale like a boycott against rent/utilities etc. happened...
The country would easily be in shambles, Owners can't afford NOT to pay and banks can't afford to not get paid...Its wild times.
is that why you think they are trying to ban tiktoc lol
