"As we have been continuously counseled for more than 60 years, let us have some food set aside that would sustain us for a time in case of need. But let us not panic nor go to extremes. Let us be prudent in every respect. And, above all, my brothers and sisters, let us move forward with faith in the Living God and His Beloved Son." (President Gordon B. Hinckley)
Every time I get groceries the prices get higher and higher. I only go once a month so if I went more often perhaps it would not be a shock but they would still be higher. With insurance rates up, along with all prices rising, we really need to get creative.
We all have been through a lot in the last four years or so. I was thinking about hard times and how when you have a hard incident sometimes it is harder to climb out of then some others. Perhaps that is what is happening. We are having higher prices as a climbing time...it isn't easy and it takes time. We will all push on and do what we have to do. We can find more frugal ways of doing things. It is hard to find time but we need to give ourselves time to learn and research so we can help our families. Sharing ideas is one very good way. For example, Shepherdess55 shared in the comments on this post how we can even further stretch our yogurt making. I thank you for that. I just put one quart of yogurt into ice cube trays. We all need to help each other so keep sharing in the comments.
