Empty Shelves After a Storm

After several of the recent winter storms, I saw many photos like this one with the shelves emptied at local grocery stores. So many people rushed the stores to stock up on supplies such as bread, milk, meat, water, and other necessities leaving the shelves nearly bare.

Scenes like this are scary to see. Especially if you are witnessing them first hand and are in need of the items normally found on the shelves. This is why it is so important to be prepared.

Stock on the things you need in advance and don’t wait until there is an emergency to go to the grocery store to purchase them. Do you have enough bread and milk in the house if you couldn’t get to the store for a few days? How about a week?

Here are a few things you want to have on hand.

Bread
Milk
Water
Eggs
Meats
Pet Food
Coffee/Tea
Peanut Butter
Jam/Jelly
Meats
Tuna
Beans
Granola/Protein Bars
Crackers
Fruits
Veggies
Butter
Flour
Sugar
Cereal
Pastas
Matches
Batteries

This is a very short and basic list. Continue Reading →

Mountain House Sale

It is the last week for the 20-25% off sale of Mountain House canned foods at ” title=”Emergency Essentials” target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow”>Emergency Essentials. Storing of dehydrated and freeze-dried foods such as Mountain House is an outstanding way to prep and have foods on hand should you not be able to go to the store and buy it.

These cans are ideal for use in home storage or emergency preparedness. Did you know that they can have a shelf life of up to 25 years? So why not buy some today while they are still on sale and put up a few extra items in your long-term home food pantry. Remember you never know when you may be faced with a situation where you will have to rely on your pantry to feed you and your family. It’s always wise to be prepared.

Food Storage Tool

Here is a handy tool I came across at Emergency Essentials.  It is a free food storage analyzer to help you determine the amount of food you and your family need to have on hand. It will help you organize, analyze, customize, and easily plan for future food storage needs.

Food Storage Analyzer™

Simply click on the above image to use this free storage food calculator. I found the tool very easy to use with nice graphics that just requires you to click on images to use. You enter the number of people you are planning for, their ages and if male or female, then you submit the details to get the results for your specific needs. I especially like that you can track the foods you already have on hand and be shown what additional supplies are needed to meet your food storage requirements.

So whether you are planning for your family’s current food needs or prepping for future long-term food storage, I hope you find this tool as helpful as I did.
