Prepare: Bulk Foods For Storage

Everyone should store food. Bulk foods should be stored due to rising food prices and possible food shortages. Put together a bulk food storage plan today.

Food has been on my mind a lot lately because of a number of reasons. First, I have been on my new Prepper Diet for the past few weeks and it has changed the way I shop and eat. Second, because of the economy, I have become more aware of the need to have insurance in place when money is really tight. Insurance like some spare gasoline for the car, cash tucked away in the shoebox for rainy days and extra food when the grocery store is too expensive to visit.

With paydays disappearing, having food stored is a neccessity.

Here are my bulk foods I have been storing and glad to have on hand.

Rice - always. We make 2-3 cups a day and eat it at lunch and dinner.

Beans - I go through two big bags of dried beans a week.

Flour - I make a batch of quick Bible bread each night. My kids take it to school with sandwiches, the baby eats it for lunch, and I eat it with rice and beans.

Honey - we use this on oatmeal, in tea, everywhere.

Oil - Cooking oil such as vegetable and olive. We use both liberally when cooking.

Oatmeal - the whole family had this on Friday for breakfast.

Yeast - To make bread of course. I buy the one pound bag and store in the freezer.

Dried fruit, nuts, etc - we make the kids trail mix to take to school for snack time. We buy these in big bags and store in the fridge.

Pasta - we buy regular spaghetti and other types. We make pasta several times a week for dinner.

Canned vegetables, fruits, stock - we buy this by the case only. There is no reason to buy one or two cans when you can by 12 or 24 and stock them in the pantry, cupboard or in a closet.

We also buy meat of course, and milk, fresh produce and so forth. But this what we get at the warehouse store and keep in five gallon buckets or the pantry.

That is my food insurance.
