    Default Are you going to stockpile food?

    Food prices are going to go up in the US due to drought. Here's a list of
    what to stockpile although some of it seems like it shouldn't be on that
    list.

    http://frugalliving.about.com/od/sto...he-Drought.htm

    I don't usually like to freeze meat unless it is cooked. I do keep
    hamburger patties and plain cooked ground beef plus taco seasoned ground
    beef. I do keep some cooked chicken but Angela really seems to prefer the
    canned and that is easy to stockpile. Same for tuna although I would think
    the drought might not affect tuna.

    Costco currently has packages of whole wheat pasta for a good price and I
    bought a huge bag of their brown rice. I have some beans but plan to get
    more. And a few more bags of popcorn.

    I think I will also buy more canned things like green beans and tomato
    sauce.

    I don't like to keep too much excess food in the house because there is
    always the chance that it will go bad before we can eat it.

    Do you plan to stockpile?

    I normally stock up on canned veggies, pasta sauce and cereal but I'm
    not saving more than usual.

    No. Stockpiling just drives prices higher. Remember the "rice shortage?"

    If keeping enough stuff in the house so I don't have to go shopping
    three times a week is "stockpiling" -- guilty as charged. :-D On the
    other hand, my meager contribution won't make much difference in the
    long run. It's those guys with all the extra money to spend on canned
    food -- or nice, big freezers -- that you have to worry about. :-D

    What rice shortage? ;-)

    Canned chicken?! That aside, you don't worry about methylmercury in the
    tuna?

    Here in Northern California, we are urged to have 3 days of food and
    water in our homes, because of earthquakes, or government attacks.

    Yes. I know. Not only did I live in CA but have lived in military housing.

    if YOU stockpile food you will only be subjecting us to complaints about lack of
    space and/or how cruddy the stockpiled food tastes when you use it. Of course,
    with you, there is always the possibility that by the time you would actually
    use the stockpiled food, you will have once again self-diagnosed your multitude
    of symptoms and change your diet...then you will whine about what to do with all
    this surplus food

    Whoa man, you gotta chill. "Julie Bove" is "Julie Bove", there is no
    fear of confusion, it is obvious who she is, a known quantity. We all
    have our own little idiosyncracies. You are as predictable as she is.
    She obviously pushes your buttons, but that is no reason for you to
    meltdown on line in the group.

    He is in my KF so I don't see what he says unless he is quoted. I most
    assuredly won't complain about how cruddy the stockpiled food tastes because
    it is mostly beans and beans are my favorite food! The only beans I have
    ever had that I disliked were BBQ beans and whatever it is that they call
    baked beans in the area where my inlaws live in PA. They are butter beans
    in some sort of sweet tomato sauce. I like butter beans. Just not like
    that. I am also not overly fond of ham. So you won't see me making beans
    like that.
