One Year’s Worth of Food

Having enough food for one whole year is every preppers dream. A lot of people think that storing all that food is ridiculous and that it’s a waste of money, but let me tell you this… that is so far away from the truth it’s quite funny even thinking about it.

An important tip is to store for adults even if you have kids in your home. A family of four, even if one is a toddler, should prepare for a year’s worth of food for four adults. Extra food is never a bad thing. 

Build Your Storage

Discount Bulk Retailers

Don’t discount them (haha!).  Membership is about $60 a year and you can get so much food for cheap its outrageous.

Sam’s Club offers up a 50lb bag of rice for $20! Beans go 20lb or 8 bucks!

Set aside $100 and make a bulk retailer food run a few times a year. This will exponentially increase food storage. 

Weekly Buys

Many people throw an extra box of pasta, can of tuna, a roll of TP or something else into the cart each week. This is another great method for achieving a year’s worth of food storage. 

Buying Food Buckets

There are many producers of pre-made, long term, food storage. These are great options, as well.

Though, once you learn how to make your own its tough to spend the extra money on premade.
