Tips To Help You Gather Your Food Storage

I just read in the Wall Street Journal about the financial mess in Greece.  Based on what I have read, Greece doesn't have much hope for a fast or easy end to their problems. It seems they won't take responsibility for their own mess. If they go back to the Drachma for their currency, the citizens of Greece can expect both food and medical shortages.

Don't think that can't happen here. It can! One way to protect yourself and your family is to gather foods that can be stored long term. As I have mentioned before, it doesn't have to cost a lot of money.  A little effort, week by week can really add up. Next time you go to the grocery store, buy an extra can or two of vegetables and a bag of rice.  Next week, get an extra box of oatmeal. Soon, you will have enough food to keep your family alive for a few weeks, then a few months. 

The best place to start is to take an inventory of what you eat and buy extra of that. Stick with familiar foods you eat everyday (this is especially true for children). No need to buy things you don't like or won't eat. If you don't like it now, you won't eat it in an emergency! 

To help you plan how to gather what you need, I have compiled a list of web sites that helped me when I was getting started.
