Ever Thought Food Storage Could Be Fun?

You have to go check out this cute new site for food storage ideas. I've kept a food storage for years, and I can tell you that if it had been this easy and fun when I first started, I'd have been one happy camper!
Pop on over and check it out. It will change how you think of food storage from now on!

I went to the website...interesting. Jack and I bought a year's worth of food storage back in the 80's when we had the 'big scare' about trucks not being able to get food to the grocery stores. Some of it was edible...the powdered eggs were gross! I'm sure by now they have improved the products; but, my memory is pretty long.

Betty- I live by the "Never store what you will not eat." rule. Because if my family won't eat it now, they will not eat it when that is all there is. I learned that along time ago. I do most of my food storage shopping at the grocery store, can food from my garden or go to our LDS cannery and can basics like flour, sugar, dry milk, oatmeal, etc. That way I don't feel as though I am wasting money. We use ours all the time, keeping it rotated, but there are two times when we had to rely solely on it and that was when our house burned and when Jim lost his job. It was a comfort to know that food was one thing we did not need to worry about!
I agree with you about powdered eggs. Bleah. That's why I have the girls! ;)

Hey sister... I love that site! I blogged about it too... yes, I have a blog again. :) Called (drumroll) Hither, Thither, and Yarn.

I am always telling myself my food storage is only as good as me going to my storage to decide what is for dinner instead of deciding what is for dinner and then going to the store for it. Love the chickens! We've had chickens for years but not in the past bit. I miss them and the fresh eggs! your chickens are beautiful.
