FOOD STORAGE - CHEAP & EASY

I’ve written several articles on food storage recently. I’ve written an article based on buying super inexpensive storage on a shoestring. I have written an article based on buying more expensive pre-manufacturered freeze-dried and dehydrated canned storage. This article will be somewhere in between. It is a basic storage from a single source. It is […]

LONG-TERM FOOD STORAGE AND CONTAINERS

As part of our food storage plan, many of us buy and store food that we are told has a 30-year shelf-life. Long-term storage is a great idea. You buy it, put it away, and forget it until something bad happens. Then you open it up and even after 30 years you still have good, […]

HOME CANNED MEAT

Canned meat is quite expensive. The least expensive I know of is 10 oz canned chicken at Costco for $2.50. That turns out to be $4.00 a pound. Canned beef is almost $6 a pound.

I found Boneless Pork Sirloin at Macy’s for $1.99 per lb. Boneless Beef Roast at Reams for $2.59 per lb. […]

A couple of days ago I mentioned that I was going to borrow an electric home canner from the Home Storage Center run by the Mormon church and report back on my experience.

After some research I have become convinced that the best container to store food for long-term storage is a sealed metal can. […]

CHEAPEST SURVIVAL FOOD

The cheapest food I know of is RICE. Almost one-half of the world depends on rice as its main or only food source. You can buy 50 lbs of long grain rice at Sam’s or Costco for less than $19. 00. Fifty pounds of rice will make 500 to 550, 200 calorie, servings of rice. […]

30 YEAR FOOD STORAGE AT DISCOUNT PRICES

I’ve always thought that spending more money than needed on something was a waste of my hard work and labor. I pride myself in getting whatever I buy at the best price available. The same applies to buying food storage. A while ago I read that the “Family Home Storage Centers” run by the Mormon […]
