Check it out! We have been building our food storage a lot this year. One thing we have been doing that is kind of like a "duh" is if there is a deal on something like ranch dressing, instead of getting one, we buy two. If it's a really good deal we'll get four or five and before you know it, you have a fantastic food storage!
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU REFRESHED YOUR 72 HOUR KITS?

Happy Friday - early friends! In an effort to help everyone with thier food storage, I thought it might be helpful if you had an idea of how much to get. Also check out the food calculator @ http://lds.about.com/library/bl/faq/blcalculator.htm I highlight what we are working on for the month & then check it off when we've completed it.
(Keep in mind you can purchase beans, rice, wheat & quick oats online - They will be shipped directly to your home for about 4.00 a case more than if you can them yourself @ the cannery. It's SOOOOOO easy. Personally I order what I can online & save the cannery for the other stuff)
*This week's item is Rice. Now that the "famine" is over, it's a lot easier & cheaper to purchase.
Good luck, Keep working & know you will be blessed for following the councel of the Bretheren.

Planning out a weeks worth of meals. You'll spend less time @ the Grocery store, not have things go bad & have to be tossed out & save $$.

I was talking with my Uncle the other night & he mentioned how people are so less self sufficient than 30 years ago. We really are. Everything we want, we just buy. I decided to start cooking more, & learn to make one new thing a week.
This week, I decided to make bread! I hope it turns out well!
