03-01-16 Daily Prep: Buying in Bulk

 

Our food storage motto is “Buy what you Eat, Eat what you Buy” This takes your food prepping needs further than just being prepared for a total disaster. You will be prepared for everyday food needs. Which brings me to buying in bulk. All those staples that you use on a weekly basis keep them in bulk in your preps. We buy many things in bulk (sugar, flour, oats, salt, etc.) In our garage at any given time we have about 18 5-7 gallon buckets filled with our essentials. This creates not only food preparedness but also convenience. These buckets only have things we use all the time. We rotate out the food and always keep them at least half capacity. We save money buying in bulk and are always prepared for the unknown food crisis which for us is usually a snow storm that keeps us home. We don’t worry we always have enough food ready and on hand.
