Food Storage Tips: A Food Storage Day!

Click now to get PREPARED!

A woman I know was behind me in line at the grocery store as I heard the total of my two carts’ worth of case lot finds (I’m not done yet)! She looked a bit incredulous, even worried. “That’s as much as I spend on a whole months’ worth of groceries,” she said.

I assured her that this was a very pricey trip to the store for me, too, but that the cost would spread out for months because…

I restocked my three-month supply today!

I am not advocating spending a whole months’ budget on your food storage if you can’t. We have been told to be prudent and to not go to extremes. You can definitely build a three-month supply a little at a time by buying a few extra items each time you go shopping.

But I have not shopped for our three-month staples for quite a while (they lasted longer than three months the last time around), and I tend to do better just sort of doing it in spurts. And we are at a place financially where we can do this.

No matter how you approach your three-month supply (even if right now it’s only a weeks’ supply), it feels so good to have a little extra food on hand. It’s like I have my own store downstairs. I rarely have to run to the store to cook — I just use what we have, and the foods that I keep stocked last me for quite a while.

After coming home from that trip, my kids decided they wanted cup-o-noodles for dinner, which was fine by me, since I was so tired.

But since they weren’t going to eat my cooking, I decided to whip up something that the majority of them don’t like. I made it with a little twist tonite — a build-your-own shepherd’s pie.

I used canned beef chunks from the cannery, just heated up in a bowl, cooked in the broth for flavor and moisture. I cooked frozen corn and peas & carrots in one pan, and fresh baby carrots in another. To the cooking water (to take advantage of whatever minerals and vitamins were in the water), I added potato pearls. Then hubby and I just put the veggie/tater mixture(s) of our choice over a layer of meat, and sprinkled a bit of shredded cheese over the top, and voila! We had an easy and hearty meal.

And we had it all to ourselves. :)
