    I haven't bought soap supplies in about 18 months. I went today and I am stunned. Sunflower oil was $1.99 to 2.99, now $4.99. Coconut oil was $2.12, now $4.99. Y'all probably know this already, I just can't believe it.

    Yep except at Kroger where I can still beat columbus foods prices plus freight, for sunflower oil, it's cheaper to purchase from them in bulk. Plus when you get a recipe down pat, he can also custom mix your oils for you which is super cool! Vicki

    Yep, I can't buy louann anymore unless I am in a real pinch at $6.48 a container! I have to buy my CO in bulk for sure. Even lard has doubled.

    I was in shock when I ordered olive oil from columbus foods the other day. I had two or three boxes from last season so hadn't needed to order - OUCH. *everything* has gone up....
