Food Storage Tips & Plan

(This picture is borrowed from http://www.histakes-food-storage.blogspot.com/, hope they don't mind)


I received this from a friend and thought it was worthy to share with everyone. Food storage can literally be a life saver during this tough economic times. Check this out.

Adjust it to meet your own family's needs. (: Food storage for $5/week for 2 people!
Each week take $5.00 and then buy the specified items for that week. Some weeks you will not use all of the $5.00, some weeks you may use more than $5.00. Plan to set aside $5.00 each week regardless. There are also a few weeks you will have nothing to buy, but set aside the money for those weeks as well.

By the end of the 52 weeks you will have 700 lbs. of wheat, 240 lbs. of sugar, 40 lbs. of powdered milk, 13 lbs. of salt, 10 lbs. of honey, 5 lbs. of peanut butter, 45 cans of tomato soup, 32 cans of mushroom soup, 15 cans of tuna fish, 10 boxes of macaroni and cheese, 500 aspirin, 730 multiple vitamins, 6 lbs. of dried yeast, and 6 lbs. of shortening.

This should sustain 2 people for 1 year.
