Rising Food Prices - what are you doing to stay within your food budget?

cstout | Aug 2, 2012 02:40 PM

As the drought in so many states continues to linger on, the food prices are slowly increasing.

I have been considering learning as many methods as I can to squirrel food away at today's prices. Of course that is playing havoc with my budget these days, but in the long run, I am hoping it will pencil out.

Pickling, fermenting, drying & freezing are some subjects I am trying to learn & of course that means buying extra books, supplies & whatnot.

What are your plans, if any, to prepare for increasing prices & perhaps shortages of food? Folks with limited space will probably need to get creative in other ways.

Do you think this is going to be a new experience for Americans or do you think optimistically & see everything falling into place later on? Unfortunately, the food prices will probably stay high no matter which way things turn out.
