Re: Share Your Prep
I buy whole wheat (food grade) at the feed store in 50# sacks. We have a local farmer who sells good once used square food buckets (4gal I think?), two will hold 50 lbs.
got a hand grinder to process it also.
put some rice up, really need to get on the ball and get more put away. Crisco shortening is great, lasts well over 5 years and can be used/rotated for baked goods.
I don't have a lot but I've got enough to last realistically a month or so, assuming there will be additional guests that show up and the need for 3-4000+ calories a day.
Did quite a bit starting about 2 years ago, kinda slacked off this year, need to add to the stash some more. I honestly don't believe there will be any apocolypse or anything serious or long term but going hungry isn't fun and being prepared is smart. You don't have to go overboard but having a few months of food on hand is a necessity for anyone I think.
Lots of folks living week to week out of the grocery store, if SHTF, they're gonna be hurting pretty bad.
Bought a bunch of bic lighters this week, want to put a bunch of those up. They last pretty much forever.
