I've noticed that about meat in particular, too.  It's outrageous.  I do what I can to buy the economy packages and divide those packages into smaller packages for the freezer.

I think it's part of a plot to force us to be vegetarian, too.  If you have ever read the book "Right for Your Type", you would know that they're crazy to try to force all of us to be vegetarian.  Not everyone can be a vegetarian.  People with blood type O, for example, will get terribly sick if they are forced to be vegetarian because this blood type simply must have meat.  As blood type O is extremely sensitive to high glycemic foods, then going very low on carbohydrates actually works for people with blood type O.  This won't work so well with blood type A.  They need more carbohydrates and can do alright with more of the high glycemic foods than people with blood type O.

Besides, veggies are getting outrageously expensive, too, so forcing everyone to be vegetarian isn't going to work.  What to do in regard to the vegetable issue is to concentrate your purchasing on the green vegetables.  If you have a Trader Joe's where you moved to, as I don't know if they are located in AZ or not, they have good prices on ORGANIC broccoli, kale and salad greens.  Anyway, concentrate your money in this area of vegetables all the more so with the economy the way it is.
