With the prices of food going up it’s time we take advantage of the lower prices while we can. In this episode Lisa and I talk about some food storage ideas and money saving tips. Some of these food storage companies are great, but they can be a pretty expensive way to build your food storage supply.
Some things you cad do are buy a little extra when you go to the store, buy when something is on sale and plan your meals out on a weekly basis. Learning how to can and package your own meals is a great low cost way to not only save money, but build your food storage in the process.
For anything long term we might need these products, but the last thing you want is 3 months worth of long term food stored that tastes like prison food. In the near future I will be testing some of this stuff out to see what is goo, what is not and what is worth the price.
The Preparedness Review
I talked a little about this in the beginning of the podcast. The Preparedness review is a great way to have reading material and learning resources if and when there is no internet. This is the 4th edition put together by Todd at PrepperWebsite.com and you can download them all for free.
I also talked about the tag cloud you can access on the prepper website by going to “prepping topics” on the upper right hand corner of the website. Here is that link.
Lisa’s Show Notes
- Everything you go to the store buy extra when you can.
- When something is on sale buy it and use coupons when you can.
- Plan your menu and follow it.
- Try to buy only what is on sale and build your menu around it.

Be Prepared For Everything
I also talked about my book that was just published to Amazon and has been very well received. You can find the book here. As I wrote in the description of the book it is not all about doomsday and as the title says we should be prepared to face anything. Here is part of that article…
“Preparedness should be a mindset, not a fad. To become a seasoned prepper we need to start from ground zero and work our way up, and we need to do it in a way that doesn’t put us in the poor house. Preparing is also very personalized, there is no one way to build your food storage and no one way to build your bug out bag. All of our situations are different and we need to plan accordingly.”
