Stocking Up On Kellogg's Products
April 29, 2021 5:09pm CST
Just read a story that Kellogg's, the maker of many cereals and other products, are raising prices soon. General Mills, and many other companies are doing the same. They make cereal, diapers, toilet tissue, etc. Many things are going up. I have noticed each time I visit the store. I am starting to stock up on a few things. I found this double pack of Raisin Bran Crunch on WalMart while shopping online recently. I ordered a couple of boxes. Might be a good time to stock up on your favorite foods and necessary items.

@CarolDM It would be nice if it was reasonable, but it's not. For people living in the larger, more expncive communities 15/hour still won't be a livable wadge. And, then you have inflation which doesn't balance things out because you're really not earning more money. It's a mess. And, honestly I understand but... damn...
For people with very limited income, they can't even buy in advance, that's very, very bad for some of them. Everything is going up, not only prices, but you can bet your bottom dollar that taxes will too for paying for all the help that governments gave to people during the pandemic,.

My breakfast cereal is just oatmeal. I just milk to a bowl of oatmeal and let it soak for a while. Very tasty with fresh fruit and I can pop it in the microwave if I fancy it warm. It is also a lot cheaper than boxes of brekkie stuff
I guess they are you're favorite that's why you are stocking them up. Very wise decision. I would've done the same. My one and only favorite cereals are WEETABIX. I love them and nothing can replace it. When I was a kid I use to like milo but nowadays can't have sugary food and drinks because of blood sugar.

@BabeSays Many issues going on here now. Manufacturers are still trying to catch up due to the boom in demand due to increasing wages, even turning to third party manufacturers to fill the gap. All of that costs money, so of course, those manufacturers pass along the costs to us. Also, when we had our new deck built the contractor said the prices were double for lumber this year. Lumber tarif's had prices already rising a year ago, but then when the pandemic hit, production shut down.
@CarolDM Here things go up a lot and I like the regular Kelloggs corn flakes and have a box that I packed already and it will be ready to open and eat when we move. I have not found a place yet and it is very hard to find one now. People seem to be staying where they are and not moving like before.

Unfortunately this is true of a lot of things, and it will only get worse. What's driving it? Many things actually. Anticipation of major corporate tax hikes and Biden's policies regarding oil are the largest culprits. Just like the corn that goes into the corn flake as an ingredient, the cost of the tax is as much a part of the price as the corn is. And of course fuel is used to truck, plane, and train all of the raw materials and the finished product, and that goes into the cost of the product as well. You are wise to stock up where you can.
