I went to the meat aisle last week cause I'm running ourt of meat in my freezer (usually but a whole side of beef at a time from a local farmer) and ONE ribeye steak was $18! I about fell over...
You know, because of the California drought prices are going up. Because of all the EXCESSIVE rain through Texas, Colorado, Oklahoma, food crops are ruined. Prices will be going up.
We're in big trouble this next year or two (or more)!
What the hell is with the price of hamburger??? Steaks are always a bit crazy, but hamburger? WTF? In the 2000's we were feeding a family of 4 on about 600 a month. The kids are gone off on their own and between the wife and I we are now spending 400 a month. It's insane!

There are some aspects of this NWO thing that are a bit more palatable than others. The price of food is not one of them.
Food prices have rose dramatically in the last few years. Small food chains could not compete. Several had to close in my area due to co-op situations. Previously the small chains would pool there resources and buy together at the co-op's. When the larger stores moved in they just could not compete. Stores that had been in this area for 20 or more years had no choice but to close. The larger stores took control of the local co-ops and that was that. As more and more animals die, food will get scarce. The fish are dieing , just recently a terrible number of antelopes have died and the recent bird flu has decimated a lot of chicken and turkey farms. Your best bet would to now learn how to container plant or learn to prepare and care for your own garden. I would also advise anyone and everyone to stock up on plant seeds, because this will be the next in line for outrageous pricing. There are many on ATS that can help with garden and canning questions. Let us hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.
