We can begin ever so modestly. We can begin with a one week's food supply and gradually build it to a month, and then to three months, to a year. Don't get overwhelmed, begin in a small way and gradually build toward a reasonable objective that works best for you!!
MAIN REASONS FOR STORING FOOD:
** Having a supply of essential foods and supplies will sustain life in emergencies and natural disasters.
** Having what we need and knowing what to do in the event of an emergency or an unforeseen life situation can bring us peace of mind.
** Teaches us basic food preparation in case of an emergency.
I am going to be having a series on here once a week I will give you a new Baby Step on how to achieve your Food Storage Goals. In the end of the series I will have a FREE download with all the steps for my followers. So if you are not a follower, no need to worry just start following my blog so you wont miss out on a thing! :)
GETTING STARTED WITH FOOD STORAGE WITH BABY STEPS:
Baby Step #1 Create a Food Storage Plan
Create a plan. In doing so you can ask yourself the following questions, and as you do so, you will see a plan before buying anything you and your family members need for your food storage to begin to form.
* Why am I building a supply of food?
* What kind of foods do I want to include?
* How will I plan what to buy for my supply?
* How much money can I afford? (couponing will help big time here)
* How will I shop for my food supply?
So make your list for these questions and come back next week for the next baby step for ideas on storage space and shelving.
