It might be a good time to stock up.

As fuel prices rise, food prices will too.

If you can make room in your home, it might be a good idea to stock up on non-perishable items like non-fat milk, cornbread, flour, rice, and oatmeal.

Non-fat milk is a perfect source of calcium, and is the only milk I use when cooking. If I need fat, I get it from bacon and sausage leavings, or margarine or butter, depending.

Learn to garden. If you live in a city, learn to garden in containers. If you have any windows that get more than 5 hours of sun in the day, pull up a table, and make it your garden. Even if you can only get a pound of carrots and the odd tomato, it will be worth it. If nothing else, you can start your children on the road to self-sufficiency.

If you don't already know your neighbors, it might be a good time to remedy that. Going in together on groceries can save you all a lot of money, and you're going to need it.

I couldn't agree more. We need to unify ourselves and help each other. Your grandparents might have talked to you about the 'Great Depression' or maybe you heard about it in school. Either way, we need to heed the warnings. As a society we too quickly forget.
