  1. “Online prices for groceries have not eased, rising 11.7% in May year-over-year (and up 1.3% month-over-month). That follows a 10.3% YoY increase in April, a 9% YoY increase in March and a 7.6% YoY increase in February.”

    To fight food inflation requires getting creative.
    First, I’ve reduced the number of “chewing meals”.
    That means more stuff made in the blender. Makes it go further. And you can cut stuff with water or milk.
    Focus on nutrition.
    Buy powdered vitamins to add, or just have the chewy vitamins.
    Don’t eat more than a fist – sized portion every 4 – 6 hours.
    Eggs expire so consider the half dozen package.
    Don’t bake cakes, cookies or other junk. Electric costs.
    Go low sodium. Make your own soups….not much broth….tons of vegetables and herbs.
    Deli meats and canned soups will kill you. Way too much salt.
    Wheat will kill you. Between the canned soups, wheat, and deli meats, your kidneys are under load.
    Stop eating these and the swelling goes away.
    Eat rye, oats, and brown rice.
    Use chopped up ham steaks in things instead of bacon.
    Look at your own diet and figure where to make conserving changes.
    No alcohol whatsoever, no tobacco. Right now it costs $1,650 to fill a 275 gallon heating fuel tank.
    So, don’t hand your money off to stuff that won’t prolong life.
    This is a war. Humility can get you through. This will last for at least 2 more years……

  2. *** Inflation has been with us for years ***

    U.S. economists have been telling us for many years that inflation has been under control, however, that is a bunch of bull. For years, consumers have been struggling with higher housing costs, increased taxes and high medical costs, yet, those numbers have never made it into the “inflation data”. I heard an economist say pretty much the same the other day…especially with housing…he said that the “real” inflation numbers are much higher when adding increases in rent/mortgages, which puts us into double digit inflation.

    But now that inflation has hit food and energy, the sky is now falling, however, the sky has been falling for many consumers for MANY years.

    And what hasn’t been tabulated all these years is the quality of products for what we pay. Instead of paying more for a decent cotton teeshirt, manufacturers use thinner cotton and charge the same price, when in reality, the quality of the product has “decreased”…so we get less for our money.

  3. I sell fishing gear and my sales have tanked, no way to increase prices when nothing is selling. And this is my busiest time of the year, I make 60% of my income for the year from May to Sept.
