For some time now we've been hearing dire news stories about inflation. Well, I'm beginning to believe them.
A couple weeks ago I went into a restaurant supply store in Spokane to buy some bulk spices. Since we intended to get a bag of rice at some point in the future, I made a special point to note the price: $14.50 for 50 lbs.
Yesterday I went back to the same store to buy the rice. The price? $18.50 for 50 lbs. Same brand, same type, new cost.
It's starting, folks. If you can stock up on food, the time to do so is NOW.
