Hard Times Ahead...!
As if the cold, snow, and ice wasn't enough...looks like the price of most of our basic food items is getting ready to sky-rocket again!
According to all the articles I've been reading lately, by the summer we are going to be taking a beating in the grocery store. Either that, or we'll be eating off our Preps in a big way!
Shaping up to be the year where lots more folks better be putting in a garden, or expanding the one they have! See what you think!
Higher food prices ahead after corn reserves sink
I think that most of us have started seeing food prices going up in our local stores...and then to find out that coffee prices are starting to climb another 10% very soon really hits me where I live! For those that are interested, that's three times in the last year for coffee increases!
An era of cheap food may be drawing to a close
It's not only corn, but all grain crops and seed-oil crops that are going to be scarce! Looks like I'm going to have to double up on my coffee and nearly everything else I like! I can't take too many more 17% or 18% increases during the next year without coming up with some way to bring a little extra money in!
Maybe I'll have to cut back on eating for a while, ya think?
Let's get some fresh coffee, my friends, before they price it completely out of my reach!
