Fridays on knee Channel 5, or 1 00 . Sundays on a gym Channel 13. Consumers wonder about rising food costs. People complain regularly about How food prices continue to Rise. But the important question Consumers fail to ask is a Are prices rising faster than incomes Quot according to the Bureau of labor statistics wages have gone up 44 percent since 1965, while the Cost of living has gained Only 33 percent in the same period. Most working people think More about the Money going out than the size of the paycheck coming in so Many of us had not realized the above comparison. Of course this knowledge won t help those on a fixed income such As retired people but it might help All of us to give a Little thought to things we can do to better understand the situation and make adjustments in our spending habits. Breaking the Cost of living Down into its three main components food and All consumables rent and services we see the following consumables Are up 27 percent since 1965 rent is up 23 percent and services Are up 49 percent. What you should notice is that food and All consumables have increased Only slightly More than Hall cd the 44 percent increase in wages. Why All the fuss about rising food prices for one reason food is one of the Lew remaining items we pay for in Cash. And we shop for food More often than for other items so that Price changes Are More noticeable. Why Arentt we better off if wages Are up 44 percent since 1965 and the Cost of living has gained Only 33 percent for those workers who have been getting regular wage increases they Are better off. I Rue the Money does no to seem to go any farther but most of us have upgraded our Standard of living. We buy More highly processed foods buy color televisions instead of Black and White take vacations that might have been out of reach a few years ago and put our children through College. What can be done to get More from your food Dollar compare costs of foods in different forms fresh canned Frozen partially cooked ready to heat and serve or ready to serve. Usually the Price will reflect the amount of work that has already been done for you. Keep this in mind. You will find that Many foods which require preparation time and longer cooking time will give you the same food values at a lower Cost. Examples Are less tender cuts of meat which require longer cooking but have food value equal to the tender cuts and cooking your of n Pinto Beans As compared to buying them already cooked in a can.
