Contrary to my post yesterday about there being no shortcuts in life, there are a few exceptions. Let’s face it, we’re all after the same thing: MONEY! And if you can cash in some moolah without too much effort, you’re not going to turn down the offer…I know I wouldn’t, as long as I’m not breaking the law! Lucky for you, I know the secret to getting rich easily:
- Head to your nearest supermarket
- Find the peanut butter aisle
- Smooth, crunchy, flavor variants, whatever: STOCK UP!
- Sell later
You know how now is the time to buy gold? Apparently the same applies for peanut butter. No I’m not ‘nuts’. The Wall Street Journal reports that prices for Jif, Peter Pan, and other peanut butter jars will going up as much as 40% starting in a couple of weeks. Thanks to Mother Nature and the decline in the yield of peanut crops this past growing season, the wholesale price of peanuts has shot up from $450 a ton to $1,150 a ton. I know I’m not alone when I admit that my ‘demand’ for peanut butter is more or less inelastic: despite a price increase, I’m still going to ‘shell out’ for it it.
Take it from me, if you want to live the good (and delicious) life, invest NOW in a few jars of peanut butter before its status changes from a ‘food staple’ to a ‘luxury item’. Given my current peanut butter stash, it looks like a baller lifestyle is only a hop, SKIPPY and a jump away from me !
Next round of
drinks sandwiches are on me!
Besides this, what’s the most unexpected piece of advice you’ve received recently?
