Let me get this right..."egg prices will go up 10 to 20 cents a dozen because of foreign demand". Why can't we just take care of our own needs? Go figure how the government operates! And what's this thing about whole chicken prices going up at the same rate as chicken breasts? For crying out loud, buy the whole chicken and cut it up. People are paying premium prices for chicken breasts because whomever has deemed them more healthy than the thighs or drumsticks that have more flavor. Cut up the chicken yourself and do whatever you do with the different sections. Make your own chicken broth by saving the non-meaty pieces and boiling them off. Strip the meat off of same and save it for chicken and dumplings or chicken casserole or whatever. It's become such a fast food or microwave world with all of the semi-prepared packaged stuff. Makes me glad that I grew up knowing how to cook and preserve food from an early age! Go ahead and raise the prices on the semi-prepared meat combo stuff, but leave the basic raw meat alone. The government is giving breaks to foreign countries that have a demand for our products when they should be helping out the producers in our country that should be subsidized for selling to America only. Just sayin..................
WELL i SAW THIS COMING! I'm Thanking God right now with TAXES,GAS MEDICAL FOOD GOING UP...I stocked up last year and canned all my veggies and fruit.....Living on a farm is hard Work but worth it a 100xxxx. I have pigs,chickens,goats and a huge garden and 4 acres of berries and fruit trees....Oh Thank you Lord. I do share with everyone I can ....This year I got 25 more chickens 9 pigs and already bought a ton of heirlooms seeds, I'm sure the neighbors and a few families around here will appreciate the help..it''s been rough on some of them. EVERYONE grow what you can and start stocking up this year doesn't look good. Before All the prices take effect.
The cost of living is rising, including most products, food, and gas, although gas rises and falls but in the long run has been rising. You need to be thrifty, going to garage sales, thrift stores, and getting things on sale. We have a grocery store, that marks down all food on the expiration date, you can always freeze it to make it last longer.
"Foods Raising Grocery Bills"
Headline of the Year!
WTF else would raise a "grocery" bill?
About the only way to shop is the weekly sales. 2 years ago I paid a buck for peanut butter on sale and now the best deal I can get is $2.50 on sale. The cost of food is outrageous and theres not much that can be done...its not like you can quit eating. Somethings I just refuse to buy because the item is overprice but food...none of us can boycott because of price.
