Three Simple Ways to be Successful at Food Storage

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

  1. Next time you’re out of something, buy 2: Use one and store one
  2. 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.

  3. 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!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the video! I agree 100% with everything! I’ve been thinking of starting to research all the “pre-made” bucket and #10 can Food Storage supplies because I knew they weren’t what they said they were, but haven’t had the time, or money. So thank you for sharing what you have found in it. I will defiantly be sharing this post and video.

    I like how you add freeze dried meats and other items to your “basic” food storage group. I have never been one to buy all that “basic” stuff because I never used it. Now, since I’ve bought your bean book I’ve really enjoyed learning how to adapt beans into my food storage and meal rotation too.

    I am so grateful to have found you. My goal was to get prepared this year. My head was spinning. How many cases of each bulk item makes a one year supply. I even called the church for help. Yikes. Then I came across your site and found your book and no kidding., The tabernacle choir started singing hallelujah and rays of sunshine filled the room. Thank you, thank you.

      The amount you need depends on for the number of people you want to get a supply for, or what you are planning on for your meals for your supply. I don’t store near as many beans as others do. But, I tend to store more meat and wheat than others too. It’s different for everyone. Instead of starting and buying bulk cases, it might be a good idea to look at what you are already making now, and start building up your 3 month supply with your basic menu items. Build your 3 month supply with your freezer, and some canned items. Then, start looking into a long term supply with shelf stable foods and recipes.
