Whether you like to grocery shop or not, going to the store has not been a whole lot of fun of late in the Lansing area. Many of our favorite items and brands are MIA on the shelves.

Plus prices seem to really be going up.  This week when I shopped I notices higher prices on bacon, meat and paid almost 7 dollars for 3 honey crisp apples.

  • Oranges. The only fruit on this list, its price is up almost 10 percent.
  • Boneless chicken, up 13.1 percent.
