On the list of TO DO’s in the survival and prepping world, food ranks way up. If it’s not the top it is definitely number two.
This means we need to take food storage very seriously. It should not be something that happens in the periphery.
Many preppers make the mistake of buying a few cans here and there and call themselves prepared. We have to be very careful about this.
Building a food storage base requires you to put that goal front and center. It’s not an ancillary activity. Schedule a food storage day of the month and bucket up food!
Bargain buying is not a means of creating a base of food storage.
Bargains are Not Commitment
Because food storage is such an important part of emergency preparedness you cannot leave it up to chance. You cannot leave supermarket deals at the helm of your food storage plan.
They can be a big help and they can make a difference in some regard but the base of your food storage plan needs to be planned and added to on a regular basis.
Monthly or quarterly food storage purchases should be part of your annual schedule.
Long Term Food Storage is Built
If you are going to be your life on it, you need long term food storage that is bucketed with mylar bags and oxygen absorbers. That is the only option.
Conventionally packaged foods will not last as long as those that are built for long term food storage. That is the reality.
Again, bargain buys can help in some aspects of storing extra food. If you are looking to truly prepare for a serious disaster, you need to have options that are stored properly and ready for your needs in times of disaster.
