For years the Urban Problem has been talking about how important it is to have a surplus of nonperishable foods in the house. If your family is facing unemployment, or you may even be underemployed and your pride or principles will not allow you to steal from the Taxpayers through the welfare system, your food storage will help you offset your family’s upkeep.
My wife and I live paycheck to paycheck, just as many of you do, so we understand that for many, the idea of spending money on food you may not need at the time may not make sense. But we never really want to think about the hard times when things are going well. But let’s get real. In truth money translates to one of two basic needs being satisfied. These needs are food and shalter.
I read a blog that was written by an ex-Mormon that was really nothing more than a complant about the releaf society always pushing food storage. The woman could not buy into what she called “nonsense” that when things get bad you may need to bartter with your food storage for the things we need.
Well I worked Search and Rescue on the East Coast in 2005 when Hurricane Katrina hit. If you understand the rules of supply and demand and realize that the watter supplies were contaminated with sewage and watter is life, you can understand why fights broke out over cases of bottled watter the FEMA and the Red Cross was giving out. I personally saw a man get shot over a case of water. So the council of the prophets of the church is not too far off.
Money is worthless if you have no food to buy.
Another objection that people have about food storage is cans rust. But as you can see this square bucket is plastic and it futher protects the pouches of food inside. The bucket is easy to stack so storage is not an issue. The vacuum sealed food lasts on the self for 15 years.
Others have told me that food storage that can stay safe for such a long time is expensive and they can’t justifiably spare the cost. I look at food storage and other forms of Emergency Preparedness products as a means of insurance for your family’s safety. Yes, it can be expensive but how can you put a price on a human life and say that $20.00 a month until your product is paid off is too much, when you are willing to insure you car and your home for far more?

My wife and I live on $50.00 a week for our food budget and we do so comfortably. This blog teaches people to do the same.
