If you’ve stepped inside of a grocery store lately, then there’s a good chance you’ve experienced some serious sticker shock like I have. Skyrocketing food prices and little to no stock of some of the most commonly purchased items can make for a stressful shopping experience. I can’t help but ask myself if this might actually get a whole lot worse before it gets any better, and if so, how prepared am I if this becomes a reality?

So I figured it might help ease my mind a bit by learning some basic skills that even just a generation or so ago were common practice — to not only help me maximize the use of each product I purchase, but also help my dollar stretch a bit further.
