Food Storage Tuesday

Every Tuesday, we post specific items you should gather in order to supplement your emergency car 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 car kit is complete, we'll be putting together 72-hour kits again (week by week).  Once those are done, we'll gather the car kits again.  So don't worry, just jump on in and join us where we are today! 

Today for your emergency car kits, add a pack of wet wipes and a roll of toilet paper.  To save on space, take the cardboard insert out of the toilet paper roll so that you can store it flat (and in a ziploc bag to keep it clean).

How's your three-month supply going?  I wish I had a bigger pantry to keep all my food in!  I have learned to maximize any space I can find -- under beds, in closets, even in my little laundry room.

This month for our longer-term storage, we're gathering "other" items... flour, honey, yeast, sugar, etc.
