Do you use a grocery list when it’s time to go get food for the family? Well, whether you do or you don’t, I bet you’ve noticed the same thing as most everybody else through the decades. Prices tend to go up. And up. Right?
To prove my point, check out these grocery list items from the 1930’s.
Do you like ham sandwiches? Back in 1932, you could’ve gotten a pound of sliced ham, in Ohio (and most other places) for about 39 cents a pound. And how about eggs? Yes, you could’ve gotten a dozen of those for 18 cents. A dozen! Are you kidding me?!
But that’s not all. Not by a long shot. How about a jar of peanut butter for 23 cents. No, that’s not the tax. It’s the total price. And you could’ve gotten a whole loaf of bread to spread that peanut butter on for only a nickel. 5 cents! I kid you not.
Remember that run on paper towels and toilet tissue last spring and summer? Imagine being able to get a 4 pack of the tissue for 18 cents. Or a tube of toothpaste for 27 cents. And how about a pound of bacon (Don’t know about you, but I’m getting hungry) for 38 cents? What?! I don’t think you can get a slice for that price now.
Back in 1937, in Indiana (and most every other place) you could get two dozen oranges for a quarter. Or four cans of Campbell tomato soup for a quarter. And even three packages of Kellogg’s corn flakes for a quarter.
Wow, times have certainly changed.
A friend of mine told me about when you could make a local phone call on something called a payphone for a dime. And he said everyone was “outraged” when that cost went up to a quarter and eventually 50 cents. If you can even find a payphone, these days, you probably better have your debit or credit card with you.
Yep, there’s almost nothing for 50 cents anymore.
Unless you’re interested in building your own business.
And that’s where my monthly RondaReady UNversity comes in. Because I’ve made it almost insanely affordable. For hands-on how-to coaching to help you build your business better and faster with a proven system, monthly tuition is only $15. And that’s just about 50 cents a day.
We just finished the second monthly lesson, yesterday. If you’re not already enrolled, you missed an essential business building video. And the next lesson isn’t until the first Thursday in April.
But you should add the deadline to enroll for that class to your grocery list…uh…to-do list. Or maybe I should say grocery. Because each lesson gets to the meat of the matter. Actual how-to stuff. Not just fluff.
So, the deadline to enroll is the last day of the month, if you wanna be in time for the next lesson. And that means March 31st for the April lesson. So, stay tuned for updates with links to enroll. Until then, go enjoy a nice ham sandwich and a bowl of tomato soup, and…
