    I found this on Pinterest and it gives a chart for gathering food over a 52-week period. Very interesting.

    You'd better darned well like tomato soup, tuna, and lots of sugar if you follow that plan.

    The concept, though, I can't argue with. A little at a time is the best way to get a LOT. I just wouldn't pick what this person picked.

    Amen to that, OH, let me try that! Exactly what I was thinking as I read through the list. Where are the canned carrots and greens. Where are the spices? Where's the fiber? I have seen this list before, and just dismissed it out of hand, as there is NO VARIETY, and it's a totally unbalanced diet.

    But the concept is sound. Say you put $5 a week into food storage. That's $260 by the end of a year, and you're well on your way. If you were able to put $10 in, then you're all the better. So, if someone is out there thinking they cannot do it, if they can scrape together $5 in change for the week, for instance, there's your food storage. And there are always times when you can do more, or not do any. It's an idea that can fit in ANYONE's budget, if they have a mind to. Cut out 1 fast food lunch a week, and there you go.

    The key with this is, it doesn't have to be a big expense. And in the long run, it's insurance for your tummy, heheheh.

    It is not something I would follow either. I just thought that if anyone is just beginning, it might help them. I have a full pantry. I would just like a root cellar, which I will never have icon_biggrin.gif and an outhouse, just in case. icon_biggrin.gif During Y2K I had tons of toilet paper, but no place to use it if we needed it. icon_biggrin.gif

    Anyway, best to all of you. I think you should get what your family eats. If they don't eat tomato soup or tuna, don't get it. We love tuna, so I always have a lot. We like Campbell's Tomato Soup with buttered bread sticks, but only eat it on occasion. If we were hungry we would eat it more often.

    I agree that the concept is sound when looking toward survival. It was not my intent to say "no, don't do this". However, we want to do more than survive, we want to be healthy. If this is all that someone can afford, I say it's an excellent way to build up a basic emergency food supply. I just tend more toward the thinking that beans and grain make a "complete" protein, as well as giving us essential fiber. I certainly would not condemn anyones approach to building up an emergency stash. It's certainly a place to start.

    This blog helped me get 5 months of food and water stocked in case of a food shortage. Also helped me grow my own.

    I ALWAYS have about 400 lbs flour and 150 lbs sugar in my basement. I cook frm scratch most of the time.

    I also have one huge container (like the restaurant pickle containers) of rice, one of pinto beans and one of oatmeal. I wish I could fill one w/just farina b/c DS and I both love it, and, it's comfort and sick day food to us, but it's just too $$$, even in bulk (and it's freaking heavy!)

    We have cases and cases of water (ps, do NOTstore this for YRS.. I recently opened up some cases and the water was yecky tasting.. guess for washing, it 'd be ok, right?)

    I have dried eggs, dried cheese, popcorn, flavored TVP, dried/canned/ready to drink milk, dry butter and buttermilk too. You can get a case of canned evap milk @ costco and I'll tell you it's not that bad, and, it has come in handy when I was out of milk.




    I have now figured out what I really use in one year (since last Summer), so now I know what to can this Summer for the year.

    I am going to really can more hamburger meat b/c I really, really liked the finished product and, how easy it was to lay out a bunch of jars for DS to make dinner quickly icon_smile.gif

    To me this list in nothing but a lot of junk. I would never buy that much if I was not using it all the time. I plan on dehydrating a lot of frozen veggies and making up my own "MRE'S" so to speak. I always have lots of different canned good on hand and flour, sugar, and rice, but what this lady has is not at all good for you.

    One thing no one has mentioned is rotating your supply every six months to a year or so... depending on what it is.

    As I said before this is food that I would never use. I keep a stock of stuff on hand that I use almost daily and here is a start to my list.http://myersminimayhams.blogspot.com/. I am still working on my list but for the most part I use something out of my stock everyday. I will be adding some canned meat to this list in time but they are not items I use all the time. For me if I want meat I go to my freezer or out in to my back yard, for I plan on raising my own for the most part.

    I like how the LDS church has thought things through.

    Here's a one-adult, three-month PRINTABLE LIST (clickable link) that appears to be a little more balanced, DEEP. As La Cuisinier Diabetique mentioned, it's important to rotate stores.

    If one has a garden, then canning and preserving the harvest would definitely be the way to go. If one doesn't have their own garden, now's the time of year to get involved in Community Supported Agriculture (link)

    Perhaps you'll all find some of these topics we've covered in the Canning/Preserving/Dehydrating forum helpful in terms of your own food storage:
    Planning Canning

    Fermentation ~ Pickles, Sauerkraut and Vegetables

    Curing of Meats, Hams and Sausages

    Food Preservation by Dehydrating

    Root Cellaring

    Food Preservation by Freezing & Freezer Organization

    Organizing Your Pantry

    The "printable list" is super, Molly. Thanks for sharing. Now, that's a plan that would be easy to use, and is very comprehensive!

    This is a much better list. I plan on printing it as soon as I can. I might not use everything that is on that list. I am planing on getting some stuff form http://store.honeyvillegrain.com/ at some point. right now I have to get out of the hole I am in form all that has happen in the last 3 months. Being that I really don't have room for all the food that I really think I need to have on hand I plan on using fried dried or dehydrated most of the time. boy is that going to be a learning curve. another site that can help with storing is http://dehydrate2store.com/
