    On my way to lake the other day, I seen Field after field COVERED in water. So many bean and corn field with not just standing water, but multiple FEET of water... With corn already being diverted for gas, poor yields all the flooding is gonna do will surely drive our food prices up much higher I would guess...

    I'm figuring higher grocery bill for everything across the board...:crazy::angry:

    Im doing the same things myself, i've stocked up for my AR's over the last few years, got plenty for the AK's, 22's and shotguns, and plenty for my .45 and .357 mag. Even put back some basic camping supplies and clothing, never know when something crazy might happen in this world today. I feel its a good investment for myself and my family...

    when i was a kid we had 200 doe's at one time. this is when you could butcher them yourself and take them to the safeway or warehouse market and they would buy them from you. i tried raiseing a few rabbits 7 yrs ago and they ate me out of house and home.

    I've already noticed prices on the rise here. My husband had been buying oil to fry fish in, & noticed that some if it has jumped as much as $2 a gallon! I've seen it going up in eggs, milk, flour, corn meal....and my favorite vanilla wafers! They went up from $2.50 to $3.28 @ Wallyworld! That's a pretty good jump! Yep, everything's going up but that hourly wage! We hunters & fishermen better be darn grateful that we have the ability to at least come up with some meat!

    yep. some may say were freaking out or jumping the gun.

    but IF it happens. ide rather have thousands of rounds and the ability to sustain myself for a while. than taking the handfull of bullets and using them to rob the ones with none.

    I havent shopped at the "name brand" grocery stores in 7 years.
    I shop exclusively at a locally owned IGA. Old store, nothing fancy.
    One brother owns one in Four Oaks, the other brother one in Smithfield.
    Whole pork loins For 8 bucks 10 cans of corn for 5 bucks. 10 pounds of leg quarters for 49 cents pound sometimes 29 cents a pounds for whole fryers. I can get 8 cut up chickens for 19 bucks. 3 liter store brand cokes for a buck 19.
    I usually get a "meatbox" once a month.
    I pull the meats out of the case I want and they add them up. Ususally I get a 100 dollar meat box. They take it back and box it all up and throw more meats into it for buying bulk.
    I usually come out with 130 dollars of meat for 100 bucks.
    I can get a 25 dollar meat box or a 500 dollar. I pick the amount. Any amount.

    I dont do Walmart groceries, Food Lion, or any of the other chains. The savings are right here at home in a locally owned store. I NEVER CHAIN SHOP FOR GROCERIES.

    Don't forget to stock up on canning lids and jar rubbers. Home canning can save a lot. Canning meat/game is easy with a pressure cooker. We always can a lot of beef when we butcher, Ill be canning salmon this fall.

    :smile2::smile2::smile2:

    The old 100 year old glass topped, wire clamped ones take rubbers. LOL I have picked up some of those old jars at auctions and they are neat. Everything you can in them could be used as decoration, as they look nice just sitting out.

    You can get those rubbers at Ace Hardware. lol

    We buy sale items and gas at Kroger. Also get 10 cents off on gas fill up for spending $100 on groceries. Normally 3 cents off with their free shopping card and their gas is usually the lowest.
    For the remainder items, we buy at Walmart.

    For those that use Discover cash back cards, you will be able to get 5% cash back on gas and hotels during July, August and September.
