FAO Food Price Index 2012

Got Food?

Food Price Index graph

Food prices continue to climb quite dramatically.

Compared to just a couple of years ago, your storable food would have increased in value by over 100%.

More importantly however, is you would not have to be spending hard-to-earn cash today, in the midst of a severe economic decline, a situation which will probably be even worse in the years ahead.

    We view tangible, long-term storage foods as a wiser investment than any PMs, and with a greater return over the long run.

    Best idea I ever had was to trade chores with hubby for him to do the grocery shopping over the last few months. Every trip, he’d set the bags down and regale me with yet another shocked recount of how prices had risen — drove the lesson home without me having to do any serious nagging. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Now he lingers in the Wal-Mart aisle where #10 cans of dehydrated and freeze-dried food are on display to tempt the sheeple and feels smug.

      That was a good idea, but don’t go to China-Mart!

      Our closest one is many miles away (which I am grateful for), so I’m almost never tempted. Buying local is more expensive, but the only way to fight back against the foreign invasion and killing of the local businesses.

        True, and I should have post-scripted my comment with the fact that we do the majority of our grocery shopping at Winco, Grocery Outlet, and the Olympia Farmer’s Market.

        China Mart is just a hard habit to break when you live close enough to hear its siren song, and you just need a couple of things you forgot… ๐Ÿ™‚
