Today might be a good day to, oh I don’t know, maybe get more stuff socked away in case of spicy times? Not only is Russia one of the largest oil producers in the world and Gas Buddy is warning of $4.50 prices by midweek….
…but Russia and Ukraine combined account for over 30% of wheat production world wide and wheat is one of those things that is a primary ingredient in lots of food. While there are certainly more cost effective ways of doing this, and my boy Bison Prepper has plenty of info on his blog about that, I decided to try out the mormon food storage site and get some #10 cans of wheat and the same in rolled oats. For six #10 cans of each and only $3 shipping, it came out to under $80….
Please note: While the rolled oats are easy to prepare with hot water, hard red wheat is not something you can do much with as it is. For example, we have a nice grinder to turn wheat into flour. I suppose you can chew on the wheat but there is some prep work to make wheat something you could bake into flour.
Not telling you what to do but I would recommend looking at your finances and then your preps and see what you might want to add before the higher freight costs start to really hammer prices. You won’t regret having too much stuff but you will regret not having enough.
