The US Retail Industry is Collapsing: Here’s Why You’re in Trouble

Shopping malls across America are going to look a whole lot emptier soon. An exodus of giant retailers is beginning with the announcement of hundreds of store closures and thousands of people newly unemployed.

The first of January, I broke with my usual tradition and wrote not about positive resolutions, but about the impending rockslide of the US economy. And “rockslide” is an apt word: as one thing starts rolling down the mountain, it will pick up other things until a veritable avalanche of other businesses and people are affected and rolling pell-mell right alongside.

Last year, we saw announcements of the expected closure of some retail giants. In February of 2013, Michael Snyder wrote on The Economic Collapse Blog that we would see the following:



When the Natural Food Market Is Cheaper

I like to buy organic, but often the prices are pretty high. I've found one exception. That's dried herbs and spices. Instead of buying those little bottles, I buy herbs and spices by the pound at the natural food store. Typically I'm only buying an ounce or two, so it's only a few cents. Why pay for a bottle and packaging that you'll only throw away later?


Keeping Track of Pantry Inventory
Because of our flexible work schedules, my wife and I share cooking duties. We both actually enjoy cooking, but we're running into a problem. Both of us plan our recipes in advance, and make sure that we have (or I buy) the things we need. At least once a week, I look for one ingredient or another to find that we don't have it. I can't blame my wife. She didn't know that I was counting on using that last clove of garlic, too. Is there a way that we can keep track of our pantry inventory, so we know what we have and what needs to be bought before we run out?


I’m still giving these away…
