If you’re stockpiling food for an emergency, the most affordable way to do it is to join a store like Sam’s Club or Costco and buy food in bulk. A membership costs around $50 a year, but you’ll save so much money that the membership will pay for itself several times over.
Granted, Sam’s Club doesn’t have as much variety as Walmart or your average grocery store, but they have everything you need to cook from scratch: flour, sugar, oatmeal, honey, seasonings, baking soda, vegetable oil, and so forth. With all the ingredients at Sam’s Club, you could cook or bake just about anything.
And I haven’t even mentioned all the non-food items they sell, everything from cleaning supplies to over-the-counter medications. In this article, we’ll look at the top 25 items to stock from Sam’s Club. Once you see the list, you’ll realize why every prepper should have a membership.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
