  1. What would you buy with the gift card?

    This month's prize is a water bottle and some icecream, last month's was a gift card (said I'd get a tent for that one). Think you forgot to update the question there.

  3. I have enough for at least a year. I don't have a "emergency" food plan. I use everything I store, and rotate it, and replace it.
    Just a FYI, do NOT store those cans with the pop off tops that are everywhere now in the grocery stores. They rust very quickly. Always check under the lid where it touches the can. Often there will be rust there, esp. if it is something with acid like tomatoes or pineapple.

    1. Thanks for the tip on those pull top cans. I wondered how those held up.

  4. I grow almost everything we eat, and my husband is an excellent hunter. We have enough property with enough animals on it to survive for a long time.

  10. For our family of five, we have gone a little over half way towards our one year food storage goal over the past year. Once we have a full year of groceries stored, I'll start rotating. I don't store items that we don't eat or that won't last beyond two years. These are inventoried in a binder quarterly to check for damage / loss.

    Our supplies are weighted heavily towards #10 cans of shelf stable foods from the local LDS cannery, along with items on sale from Emergency Essentials that the cannery doesn't carry. I planted a "Square Foot" garden and some fruit trees, am learning to can, and have stocked up on canned fruits & veggies, peanut butter, oils, and other nonperishables from Sam's.

    We don't have enough water stored, though, because giant blue barrels are more challenging to hide from my husband than the food. Am sneaking into the yard a 60-gallon rain barrel that looks like a planter, just ordered online from Home Depot. Will drill a well in the back yard soon, plus we have two other water sources & multiple purification methods. Since dried foods generally cook and go down easier with water, water has become my priority.

    We have multiple ways to cook our food, too. These include a solar oven, thermal / insulated cooker, Volcano stove (uses wood, charcoal, or propane), propane grill w/extra tanks, 36" x 18" steel cooking grate, and plenty of cast iron ware. Our family is having fun learning to cook outside -- I'm not telling them these little adventures are practice. ; )

    The Volcano collapses into its tote bag for travel, and we have folding stoves in bug-out-bags. Our BOBs also have food bars designed for situations when water is in short supply.

    Sorry. I didn't intend to write so much. But I still feel like there is so much to do.

    1. Sounds like you have things coming together pretty well.

      Water is a huge deal. Those disguised barrels are a good idea. If you are having trouble convincing your husband that filling your yard with water barrels is a good idea, maybe he would be more open to a hot tub or a swimming pool. When disaster strikes, there are ways to make this water usable.

  16. I'm adding a few dried foods, and cans here and there when I can. When I my budget gets larger, I plan to buy more in bulk. It's not up to par but it's how it's going. :P

    techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I'm thinking about setting up my own but I'm not sure where
    to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks

  26. Other symptoms can include but are not limited to irritability and mood swings, hot
    flashes and night sweats, memory lapses, aching joints,
    depression, weight gain, and pelvic pain. Spray tanning makes the skin golden brown, and not orange.
    Cheaper versions are less likely to coat evenly or have colors that do not blend well with a variety of skin tones.
