How Is Your Food Storage Supply Coming Along?

Planning a long term food supply is critical for weathering any storm life may throw at you. My church counsels that we each need a one year supply of foods for our family.  (Three months supply of foods you normally eat and a one year supply of longer term foods such as rice.)

I know I have mentioned the importance of food storage a few times on this blog.  You can read some of those posts here. How are you doing gathering your supply? Are you having any challenges? If you are, feel free to ask questions in the comments below.  I will be happy to help.

I have gathered a few additional web sites that I think may help you determine how to start or refine your food storage plan.

To cut costs, take advantage of BOGO sales. Try purchasing fruits and vegetables in season when they are cheapest. Try avoiding the expense of fruits and vegetables that must be imported. The additional handling costs will add little value. You may also consider clipping coupons for additional savings. Don't forget that with the holiday season coming soon, baking supplies will go on sale. 

 It is an excellent time to stock up if you can!

  1. Hi Kate! I'm enjoying reading your blog! I have really been working on our food storage this year, with all the canning I've done. I love this sort of thing and I've only been doing it for about a year or so!

    I like your non-electrical appliances, and have a couple of those myself. I don't use them because I am spoiled to my electric ones. I guess just knowing that I have some of these items if/when the grid goes out, gives me a sense of security. It's nice to meet like minded people! Thanks for sharing! Blessings from Bama!
