Food Storage

I don't know about you, but I often feel overwhelmed when I try to update my food storage and 72 hour kit. I try to buy "extra" of certain things every now and then. I like case-lot sales too. I buy beef in bulk, and cook and freeze it. I just seem to run out of things so quickly! I've come to the conclusion that food storage is a never-ending project I constantly have to be working on. And it will never end. I feel like I do just a "fair" job of keeping my shelves stocked. I often think to myself, "okay, if a disaster happened today, and I wouldn't be able to go to the grocery store, or the grocery store was just OUT of food & supplies, how long would we be able to survive on what I have right here in the good ol' storage room?" I think we would do pretty well for....maybe a month or two, at the most. I have LOTS of rice! We could survive on rice, cereals, canned foods, pasta, and powdered milk. I don't know that we would have enough water to last us very long. And we NEED water to survive, and to prepare a lot of these foods! Otherwise we're chewing on hard spaghetti noodles. eeww.
Anywhoo, I'm just thinking out loud. The real reason I started this post was to share this blog with all of you:
My aunt referred it to our family, and it's a good place look for tips! Enjoy!
