The Fed has gone and done did it. With Fed rates lowered by a whopping 1/2 point, we’ll see that hell hath no fury like inflation scorned. I’m heading out to the grocery store today to buy the following items: a loaf of bread, a dozen eggs, a couple of rib eye steaks, a gallon of milk and a package of bacon. I will scan the receipt and post it here or I might create a new website called “real inflation tracker” or something like it.

Each quarter, I will buy the exact same items and in one year, you’ll be able to see exactly what inflation means for you. You might be happy to see your stock portfolio rally a bit but you’ll be paying dearly every month at the grocery store!
