Are you overwhelmed at the prospect of getting prepared and gathering your food storage?
We don’t blame you.
And to be honest, it’s not your fault.
It’s sort of like getting married or having a new baby, everyone is eager to give you advice, share a horror story, or sell you something.
The truth is, food storage is quite simple and much easier and cheaper than you think.
We’ve boiled it down to just three easy ways to be successful on your path to food storage and preparedness.
3 Easy Ways to be Successful at Food Storage
- Next time you’re out of something, buy 2: Use one and store one
- Food Insurance:Do you buy car insurance hoping to get in an accident? Probably not. You buy it “just in case” one happens right? It is the smart thing to do. Do you buy home owners insurance hoping your house burns to the ground, is flooded by a broken pipe or destroyed by a tornado? Of course not! You pay for insurance to help get you through until your car or home is repaired or replaced. So why not think of your food storage, especially our long-term food storage, as food insurance? It is food set aside (like your insurance premiums), that will take care of feeding your family after something goes terribly wrong. Long term food storage, aka “year supply” is different than your everyday/90-day food storage. It made up of foods that are shelf stable, supply enough fuel to keep you up and moving and can store a long, long time. How long? Most can store 20-30 years. With all the uncertainty in the world, financial instability, job loss, terrible sicknesses, nation rising against nation, natural and manmade disasters, all prophesized long ago, doesn’t having some food set aside to insure you, your children, your family can eat, and perhaps have some to feed your hungry neighbor sound like the smart thing to do? So what is a year supply?It’s food that you can survive on for a year.
- Choose to use: HINT! You don’t need to buy a bunch of mixes and expensive freeze-dried foods. You can skip that expensive food storage brownie mix (you know the one, the one that is really costing you $7 to make a pan of brownies…yeah, that one) and make brownies for a fraction of the price using basic food storage ingredients (flour–maybe even some whole wheat flour, if you’re daring enough–, sugar, oil, cocoa, and eggs). The more you use the basics, the more you realize you don’t need to buy that expensive stuff your friend is selling you. You smart enough, resourceful enough, and brave enough to start cooking from scratch–AND LOVE IT!
