No I'm in the mode of giving away extra stuff rather than stockpiling. HOWEVER; I do have 50 tomatoe plants - 19 different cultivars, 1 row of rasberries, 1 of 2 types of strawberries, 6 avocado trees, 10 stone fruits, 20 citrus, lots of flowers: lavender, zinnia, roses, peony; lots of herbs of every type I love to cook with- 2 types of thyme, basil, rosemary, ginger, garlic and more so I'm set if produce goes up 100% - come on over when fruit ripens I'm in the give away buckets stage

Nope, I am stockpiling my money for when trade opens with North Korea someday in the future.  Especially prized will be the official state picture of Dennis Rodman with Chairman Kim to complement my photo of Elvis with President Nixon.

The manager at Best Buy told me they are planning to raise the price around July. The increase will not be 25%. Rather the middle guys will absorb some fat. One thing they can do is stop honoring price matching.

I was there for Ecobee thermal controller. I showed them Amazon price the cashier says you are not eligible because of 3 rd party seller.  Then the manager walked in check another store and gave me 30% off.  

For major appliances by all means hurry. Import steel already has gone up from last year.
