According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the rate of inflation hit a 41 year high in June.

The rate surpassed 9% for the month, hitting a whopping 9.1%.

Food prices have seen the largest increase since 1979, at 12.2%.

The costs of food and other things will eventually drop down, but for now they remain high.

What grocery items are the most expensive that should be cut out to save money?

Eggs and milk have risen the most out of most foods.

Eggs have risen 33.1% since last year, and milk has risen 16.4%.

For the month of June, eggs were up by 0.3% and milk was up 0.9%.

Obviously cutting them out entirely may not be possible, but looking for deals and planning meals in other directions may be helpful with saving money.
