Yes, food has gotten outrageous. I stock up on food when there are sales, and I bought a lot of staple commodities like coffee, flour (whole wheat
and white), sugar, olive oil, cocoa powder, powdered milk, etc., when it was cheaper. I grew a garden this year and we had fresh veggies all summer.
I have the acreage to have some chickens, we just need to build a coop and a cat-proof yard for the chickens to be in (we have 9 cats).
We are looking into building a greenhouse, a coop and maybe later, a small barn for a cow.
In the mean time, I have stocked up on enough food so that I can pick and choose during sales at the store. We knew it was going to get ugly with
prices because the commodity prices six months ago were very high, and commodity prices in the stock market always looks ahead about 6 months.
