We decided to start Store This, Not That! because after all of our classes, TV appearances, seminars and speeches we do, people still frequently ask us, “What’s the secret to getting your food storage?” Even our own friends ask us this. They say things like “We don’t have time to learn everything we need to know, read a long book, or take a class. Just tell me what to do—can’t you just do it for me? What’s the secret?”
So Store This, Not That! was born. It’s an exciting website that is meant to help people quickly decipher what they should and should not be storing. Think Better Homes and Gardens meets food storage. The problem is, (unlike pioneer times when your choices were hard tack or more hard tack) there are too many food storage options and companies to choose from now.
Here, we empower readers with the savvy tricks and insider information it takes to store the correct food, get the best prices, and in the end, how to make something your family would actually eat.
