Food Storage Tips: Advantages of a three-month supply

Click now to get PREPARED!

Wendy at iPrepared wrote up a great post about the advantages of a three-month supply. She’s absolutely right. Keeping a three-month stockpile saves time, because it eliminates last-minute grocery store trips for missing ingredients and enables you to shop less often. It saves money, because you can wait to stock up on items until they are on sale, and fewer grocery store trips means less money spent on impulse buys and gas. It leads to a better diet, because meals prepared at home with wholesome ingredients are better than quickie convenience foods from the store. And keeping a three-month supply inspires confidence, in both you and in your family. With a little extra food, there is less to worry about. My husband and I talk about problems in the economy with our elementary school-aged kids. They don’t seem to be afraid. I think part of the reason they aren’t afraid is that we have food in the basement and a garden in the backyard.

Another advantage is that little kids think it’s cool to have a store in the basement.

Another advantage is inflation protection. I’m glad that we are still eating cheese at last year’s cheaper prices.

While I’m here, what are the disadvantages?

Basement flood. We did that last year, and it wasn’t fun. A pipe burst over our food storage, getting everything wet and leaving a couple of inches of water on the floor. We had to move everything and suck up the water with the wet/dry vacuum and with the carpet cleaner. Our kind neighbor helped us. But most of our food was okay. The boxes of baking soda got a little wet, but everything else was wrapped in such a way that the food was okay. By the way, now is the time to disconnect hoses from the outside of the house, so your interior pipes don’t freeze this winter, causing a flood in your basement!

Moving. Moving food storage is tough. But with a three-month supply, it isn’t too difficult to use up your food storage before moving. Towards the end you tend to get creative with meals to use up spare ingredients. I think we made chicken spaghetti before our last move. It wasn’t too bad.

Weirdness. A few people still think it’s weird. But more and more people are thinking that keeping a three-month supply is a smart thing. Funny how quickly opinions are changing.
