Prices of everything are going up right now. Meats, dairy, certain grains, wood, oil… I mean it is insane. I feel like my weekly spending habits are up nearly 25% from what they were just at the end of 2020. I don’t even buy anything different. I want to have a plan to combat incoming costs due to inflation, what are some things I could do?
I know it is scary. I planned on looking for houses this year with my soon-to-be husband but we simply can’t afford it yet. I am hoping we can start looking in the fall but he has to get a raise at work and I need to increase my earnings as well. As for shopping, what you can buy now and keep for a long time, just stock up on it. Stock up on things you can freeze for a long time or has a long shelf life as far as food goes. For things like wood, shop smart, and buy wood that can be used for multiple purposes.
