Last Sunday, hubby and I went to the supermarket to do our grocery. I went to the rice section only to find out that the supermarket only sells three kinds of rice: Thailand Jasmine rice (Which costs to around P400.00/5kg), Organic unpolished rice and brown rice. Yes, those are the only three kinds left for people to buy. Most of the shoppers were irritated by the fact that they no longer sell other types of rice. It's annoying because honestly, I don't even believe that there is a shortage of rice.
As if the increase in rice is not enough, almost all products have increased in price -- well at least those products that I bought last Sunday. You can see how most of the shoppers are turning into wise consumers because most of them no longer shop base on familiarity. They now are cautious in checking the prices of each product and comparing which product will actually give the best value for their money. To top it all, the price of gasoline is continuously rising...and it doesn't seem like it's going to stop anytime soon.
It's scary what the future holds for my son. I'm just thankful because I know God is there to help us get through it all.
Faith can really go a long, long way.
