Bishop's Storehouse Price Increase

I would just like to start off with: there's no need to panic.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has implemented a Bishop's Storehouse price increase effective now.

You can see the price list here.

Now, these are somewhat large price increases. But as I said before, there is no need to panic. We can do this!!

Here's an overview of the kinds of changes you'll see:

Wheat is now $11.45 (up from $7.65) for a 25# bag.

There has been a price increase of 19.1% in the past 22 months on the 20 most-purchased foods. That's almost a 1% increase per month. No panicking, however prices are just going to go up from here. If you have been putting off heeding the call to food storage, now would be a good time to stop.

We'll see the biggest increase in:

Sugar @ 26%
Regular Oats @ 29.6%
White Wheat @ 31.9%
Macaroni @ 36.4%
Potato Flakes @ 39.2%

Rice and beans increased very little during the same period.

You guys are great!! Keep your prayers up and your tempers down. We have known for a long times that the last days are here. The time for rationalization has passed. The time to ignore the Prophet's warning voice has come and gone. We must band together and find strength in our relationship with our Father in Heaven through prayer. Much of the world is in trouble. It will reach our shores one day. We know this. Price increases like this will become ever-more frequent as we grow nearer and nearer to the Lord's Second Coming.

Time to get busy!!


  1. Hi Laura, as you know i'm very new to the church but also very willing and ready to get my food storage going. i have already started some things and your site is a great help. I plan to attend the next Provident living class. I'm just wondering how do I go about getting some of the items you are talking about. Any help is appreciated thanks.

  2. Karen,

    First of all, I'd just like to say 'hooray!!' for getting your food storage together. I promise you will never regret this decision, and the Lord will provide a way if you are willing. : )

    Now, on to the nitty gritty... there are several things you can do - first, read the Provident Living Newsletter for this month. It explains in detail what we're doing in the area to help people begin. You can order freeze-dried foods etc from Emergency Essentials through the Group Buy Program, which I run. You can get bulk long-term storage foods like wheat, rice, sugar, etc. through the dry-pack canning process. And you can learn what to do with your stuff and how to garden in this area etc. through the Provident Living classes!! The way to sign up for food items is just to email/call/text me. Or Facebook me. Goodness! Get a hold of me somehow, and I'll add you to the list. And if this is all as confusing as it seems as I write it, feel free to call me or we can meet up for lunch one of these days and I can go over the processes in person. ; )

    Love your guts!
