I've been drying onions this week since they have been on sale. We eat onions in most everything and it irks me to no end to 1) be out of onions and 2) pay close to a dollar a pound for them. So when I can find them on sale I will chop them up and dry them. I'm hoping we will grow some next year but until we do at least I know we won't be out of them. I've had folks tell me that it was cheaper to just buy them dried but I don't know. I can get 5 lbs of onions on sale for under two dollars and it will make almost a quart of dried minced onions. I can't touch that price if buying it already done for me. Besides, I'm
I don't know if you have heard it yet but Jiff peanut butter announced this past month that they are raising their prices by 30% real soon. Other companies said they will follow suit. So if you are a peanut butter lover like we are here, you might want to try and stock up on some. I got lucky this past weekend and hit a 12 hour sale that had good peanut butter on sale for .99c a jar. Of course there was a limit of 4 on them but I didn't let that stop me from heading back a couple of times! The biggest surprise was when I got to the register and the kid asks me if I had a coupon for them. I asked him if I needed a coupon for them and he told me no, but that he had coupons that he'd been told to give to customers. Long story short I was able to get those .99c jars for half that! Two for a dollar with the coupons! Peanut butter cookies anyone??
Another good deal I ran across was on bacon. I don't know about where you are but around here bacon prices are through the roof. Getting up to $4.00 a lb. So when I saw that 10 lb box of nice looking bacon for $15.00 I knew I was going home with it. LOL! Now I wish I had been able to afford more of it!
Anyway... the point is that if you get a chance to stock up, now is the time... get it while you can! Food prices are soaring and will only go higher. What you stock up on today will be sure to cost more in the coming days. Get ready for it folks, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
