Food Storage Tuesday

Every Tuesday, we post specific items you should gather in order to supplement your 72-hour kit, your three-month supply, and your longer term storage.  If you are new to our blog, don't worry!  You won't be left behind.  Just start up where we are and follow along.  You will eventually have everything completed.  Once the 72-hour kit is complete, we'll be putting together emergency car kits again (week by week).  Once those are done, we'll gather the 72-hour kits again.  So don't worry, just jump on in and join us where we are today!  

This week for your 72-hour kits, add mess kits or disposable plates/bowls/utensils etc.  Since you've (hopefully) already planned out your food, you should have a good idea of what kind of eating utensils you need.

How's your three-month supply going?  Don't forget to stock up on non-food items like toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies, toothpaste, soap, detergents, etc.  You should also have three months' worth of medications.

This month for our longer-term storage, we're gathering beans!  I just love beans, and thankfully my kids do too.  I like having a good mix of dried beans and canned wet beans (we go through those pretty quickly, I can't seem to keep them stocked for long!).

Hi, we just found canne pork and beans for 9cents after coupons, and we bought a stand alone pressure cooker to prepare dry beans we already have. What a coincidence!Are you on FB?
