It's easy to start a food storage program. You go down to the grocery store and buy some food.
Easy, ... Until you start thinking about being able to survive for a few weeks, months, or years then it gets complicated.
If you're planning to survive for a few weeks, you just purchase more of the food you normally eat. The same is true for a few months, except you have to be a lot more organized, a whole lot more.
The same is true for storing food for a few years.
Now, some people will tell you that I'm lying, but it's true.
You start by buying some food, you have to be organized, and it's food that you and your family normally eat.
Currently, we (preppers and survivalists) are looking at the financial collapse of the World. You know, where your money is worthless, and less, and less. As food becomes more, and more, and more expensive.
You and your family have to start storing food while there is still food on the grocery store shelves, and I like to do this by buying my family's food on ...
Before I begin, I have to tell you. My brother Spartan sells food from Thrive. They are currently having a sale, and the food is pretty good. He and his family eat it all the time.
You have to practice using it, like any other prep. That's right freeze-dried food, dehydrated food, whole foods, and even the 'normal' bagged, bottled, boxed, canned, and frozen foods you usually eat take practice cooking to prevent food from being wasted.
Let me repeat, you have to practice using it, or on the day your family is hungry, you, your partner, or your children will be frustrated and hungry, trying to make a healthy and nutritious meal.
My family is slowly building our food storage. We do this for various reasons. One reason, Katniss is a vegetarian, so we don't store meat or eat meat.
We started out buying and storing white rice and dried beans. Once we had about a year supply of food for everyone in the family, we have begun storing and using freeze-dried veggies, in our daily meals.
I have been using Emergency Essentials for a few years, usually buying veggies, like ...
Emergency Essentials - Freeze-Dried Green Peas
Emergency Essentials - Freeze-Dried Super Sweet Corn
one, two, or three cans at a time. When they are on sale, this allows me and my family to add even more vegetables to mix in with the rice and beans.
With that said, ...
Every once in a while, Emergency Essentials has a so-called group buy that allows you and your family to purchase even more food for less money, like ...
Emergency Essentials - Freeze-Dried Green Beans
Emergency Essentials - Apple Slices
Needless to say, that isn't the only item that they carry, so check them out.
Emergency Essentials - Hojme
One of my brothers and his family are going about storing food differently from me and Katniss. They are making it a business. A business that allows them to buy food for a reduced price.
If you want to know how, you can give Spartan a shout by going to his contact page.
With that said, they are also having a sale that you might be interested in for your family's food storage.
One of the things, I like about Thrive Life is the variety of food. It isn't limited to three of four items, in each major food group. Thrive Life has a variety of fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, and ... Snackies.
Yes, ... Snackies
Snackies are pouches that have several servings of freeze-dried yogurt bites, vegetables, or fruits.
One of the great things about snackies, your children will love them.
What's better? You can purchase larger packages, like #10 cans, and make your own for your children.
They are healthy, too.
I feel bad that I'm not directly linking to these items, but I don't know if my brother would get credited for the sale.
You'll have to go to the sale page. It's at the top; where it says, ...
"Spring Sale Coming Soon! View sale pricing"
Like my friends and family, some folks are going to wonder how the heck this Wednesday didn't have any gun articles.
Well, ... Here you go.
A place for you to find some awesome bargains on a variety of new firearms, magazines, and ammunition.
