I also stock up/buy only when on sale.
But, in general, lately just from walking through the store, I notice just in the past few months:
Bread loaf up 20% (up from .99 cents per loaf to $1.19)
Bacon up 42% (up from $4.29 /lb to $6.29/lb)
Eggs up 74% (up from $2.89 18/pk to $3.89 18/pk)
Hamburger up 70% (up from 3.69/lb to 5.29/lb)
This makes me say... GOOD LORD....
Even though the increases are on average about $0.50/item, on a full grocery cart that still can add up.

S&F. I noticed a sharp increase in meats and butter. We buy a half a cow, so the beef prices don't effect us, but I do keep an eye on them. Pork is up about a half a buck a pound here in the last year. Chicken is also up about a half a buck a pound. Coffee has been on sale so we stocked up, a thirty two ounce can was between five and six bucks with a coupon for a while. Half the stuff has jumped up a minimum of ten percent and the other half hasn't moved much. We usually buy only stuff on sale though, this saves a bundle. With the pantry and freezers, we can do that sort of stuff, rotating things is necessary. Miracle whip goes on sale before thanksgiving and Christmas, also before easter and the forth of July. We stock up each time, it is about 60% the normal price.

I don't know. It seems to me prices for food and basics has risen steeply where I live. A year ago, I could buy a months worth of quality food at roughly $350.00 (I'm only feeding one and try to buy organic if available...it's pricey, but tastes better). Now however, because of financial constraint, I'm getting about the same food at the same price, but none of it is organic.
Any type of meat is through the roof here. $13.00 dollars for a lb of ground beef! Give me a break. The price of meat is turning me into a vegetarian...and I am a meat eater! Thank Dawg, I hunt and fish and help my bud on his farm...otherwise I would never be able to afford meat the way prices are going.
