I read a story on CNN yesterday that the drought is damaging farmers crops and making it hard to plant anything given the dry conditions. You can read the story here. Of course, that same story talked about the rise in food prices that shoppers will see given the low yield on veggies and fruits making their way to the grocery stores.
The grocery items that are corn based will definitely see a rise in prices. Keep your eye out for the buy-one-get-one-free deals which can amount to savings. We all know the price of peanut butter has not gone down, but up. This is one item that stays stocked in our pantries so any deals you find on this staple is worth stocking up.
We have seen the grocery prices rise for some time now, but the story on the drought will probably hit our wallets even more. Start saving so you can still buy the favorites you and the family have come to enjoy.
