    Made the 60 mile trek to the city where I buy food and supplies today. As I was going through the canned vegetables aisle, (I always get a few extra for the pantry) I saw Libby's standard 15 oz can of green beans for $1.89 I cannot repeat here what I said to myself when I saw that, but I am...

    Found this little fun fact, something to look forward to if the S hits the fan. During the American revolution, inflation was so great that the price of corn rose 10,000%, the price of wheat 14,000%, the price of flour 15,000%, and the price of beef 33,000%.

    Please keep in mind that this is my personal opinion, and I am in no way trying to fear monger. There is enough crap out there to worry about without any help from me. I feel that we are in a calm before the storm. Not necessarily a SHTF storm, but a panic storm. From right now until the...

    As I am in college, I could be spending my time more wisely reading books related to my field to advance my career than working a minimum wage job saving for food and water.

    Is it just me, or are grocery prices going up at an alarming rate? Manufacturers are making packages smaller, ounces less, etc. Most other products have gone up considerably in the last six months. Gas is outrageous. A few years ago, when gas prices went up, the news outlets were going...

    I see constantly the prices you all quote on what you buy and how it is all going up. If I could buy at the prices you quote I would be cheering. Your prices are so cheap compared to where I live. In fact some of them are amazing. Perhaps you are finally catching up to the rest of world and...
