I don’t know about you but I get very overwhelmed when it comes to food storage and year supply. There are so many great websites to help start your food storage. I just wanted someone to tell me what I needed to get and how to get everything on a budget.
I was emailed a list of how to build your food storage on a $5 a week budget and I was beyond excited! Depending on where you shop, it may be slightly higher but you can definitely do this on a tight budget. I wanted to share this list with you guys. I did make a few minor changes, he sure to make changed for your own family. For example, if your family does not like tuna then buy canned chicken instead.
Here’s a printable list so you can print it off and keep it somewhere handy!
After this list is complete you will have:
100 lbs of Flour
180 lbs of sugar
40 lbs of powdered milk
12 lbs of salt
10 lbs of honey
5 lbs of peanut butter
45 cans of tomato soup
15 cans of cream of mushroom soup
15 cans of cream of chicken soup
24 cans of tuna
21 boxes of macaroni and cheese
500 tabs of aspirin
6 lbs of yeast
6 lbs of shortening
12 lbs of macaroni
Isn’t that awesome!?
A few other things that I added to my shopping list for year supply are:
- Cases of Water
- Toilet Paper
- Shampoo and Conditioner
- Laundry Soap
- Feminine Products (if necessary)
- Stash $5 here and there in your year supply, so you have a little cash.
- Also, if you have baby or toddler, you may want to include items for them such as diapers, wipes, formula and/or baby food.
I know that there are many other things that can be added to this list, this is just what I came up with.
I would love to hear what you guys have come up with…I am ALWAYS looking for more ideas! Leave any suggestions in the comments as I’m sure we could all use each other’s expertise!
