Things You Can Expect to Pay Less for in 2017


I heard a segment on the radio yesterday talking about things you will find going down in price in 2017!  I came home and did a little googling and found the sources of that information so I thought I would share it with you!

I love avocados but I rarely ever buy them unless they’re on sale – $.89 or less.  ($.49 each is my favorite price!)  I had no idea that the reason avocado prices were up was because there was a growers’ strike and a supply shortage.  Both are over now so supply is going up which will push prices down.

Have you noticed egg prices down?  Right before Christmas I got dozens for $.94 each!  The USDA Economic Research Service Food Price Outlook says, egg prices are expected to decrease another 11% to 12% in 2017!   Beef and pork are both expected to drop about 1%, and vegetable prices are expected to drop 2% to 3%

Peanut Butter is also expected to drop around 3%.

I know it doesn’t seem like much but every little bit helps and it adds up over the course of a year!
