Well I'm sure many of you are already stocking up when you can just as I am.And at present it is easier for me to do 25.00 to 50.00 at a time.I can get alot for that,as there are things that are inexpensive that we like to eat.Like tuna that I can get for .54 a can, treet for 1.00 a can,ramen noodles are dirt cheap,I got six boxes of mac and cheese for 2.00 recently.Sometimes I find real good deals on other canned meats and veggies,soups.If I find a good deal on meat I will get it for the freezer.I know which stores are cheapest on any item I want.I can get bread for .75 a loaf so I buy several loaves at a time and put in my freezer.I know one place to get eggs for .95 a dozen,but you can only store them for so long. I have always been a beans and potatoes kind of person,I don't tend to by the quick and easy.I love to cook,and most of what I cook is cheap. Anyway if your not real picky you could have alot of food put back without it costing a fortune.Even with the rising prices. Right now instant or canned potatoes tend to be cheaper than a bag,and they keep alot longer.And I buy dry beans of all kinds and fix them in my crock pot. I'm a coffee drinker so I always keep a couple of large cans of coffee ahead. I make alot of cornbread and buscuits from scratch too.

Yes I have just started buying extre things when they are on special, a thing my mother used to do, but I didn't know you could buy potatoes in a can, I have never seen this, I must check that out next time I am at a supermarket. I could do with a little more storage space though. It is a good idea to stock up when things a cheap.

Yea here in the US they are with the other canned vegetables.Usually by themselves or with green beans.They are small and round,you could boil them and mash them,or I suppose you could slice them and fry them a little.But you'll have potatoes none the less and they will keep just like the other canned stuff.Oh I love canned yams too.
