A few weeks ago I posted on rising food prices. Are you noticing the increasing prices too? I sure am. Then I read last week about how Costco and Sam's Club are not allowing certain customers to hoard rice. Now, this article in the Wall Street Journal on why we should all seriously consider stockpiling food.

I am not a chicken little, but perhaps this food stockpiling idea does make good sense. I mean, we already do it a bit whenever I buy in bulk. I 've been thinking about visiting Freecycle.org and Craig's List for some extra shelving to help organize and create more storage in our basement. Maybe this is the kick in the pants I've needed!
Anyone else considering expanding their food storage? Or is this just another example of media over-hype?
