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.
