Wondering what you should keep on hand? What to put in a survival cache or a kit?
We all know that we have to keep water and canned goods on hand.
But if you’re picking up vegetables, don’t forget canned fruits too.
Oh, and soups – after all, soups can be a meal in a can, you know. But when I thought of canned goods, I immediately only thought about vegetables. There are so many other things in CANS!!!
We need other stuff too. There are canned meats – but don’t get caught only stocking tuna – there are other canned meat alternatives.
Whether you want to think about it or not, you will want (and need) a variety of foods.
So, take a trip to the grocery store – take a look at everything in cans… it’s not just veggies. You can get canned juices – or even juice boxes if you want something fast and easy. There are so many options, try to think out of the box. Just make a list of everything available in cans – then look at the boxed foods. Look at the expirations of these food preppers cereals and pastas.
By viewing everything up and down the aisles, you will soon figure out that you can have a HUGE variety within your survival food stash. How long you plan for is up to you. Personally, my survival cache will last for well over a month. And I have made sure that there are plenty of each different type of food: pasta, cereals, rice, canned veggies, soups, meats…
It only takes some planning and ACTION to get your survival cache to the point that you know you are prepared.
Don’t forget “The road to Hell is paved with good intentions.”
If you don’t start storing your food, it doesn’t matter how much you know about it.
Make that trip to the grocery and write down the things that you can add to your stockpile and then methodically start gathering it together. Rotate it all so that you have the freshest possible should a disaster hit.
You can be ready. Don’t get caught looking for the things that are flying off the grocery store shelves! You can figure it out.
No need to panic when a crisis hits – not if you are prepared for success!
Don’t make the mistake of having nothing but tuna and canned vegetables in your cache. Be sure to include the things your family wants when you accumulate your survival cache.
