Ask 10 Preppers their food storage plans (how rude….) and you will get 11 answers. Today I am going to talk about my base food storage plan and why it is best for my family’s situation. I needed something that was shelf stable long term as I am not panic buying because I believe a disaster will come next week – but rather I am hedging my bets just in case. I needed something easy to store so it did not get overly confusing to my wife

I needed something cheap – because in a fight between might need later and need diapers now – diapers win…

I did not need to worry about:

  • Food that was particularly easy to cook
  • Compact size
  • Food allergies
  • Low water/pre-cooked

This narrowed down my search, and once I determined my food storage strategy, I was able to spend some time finding cheaper sources of supply.

You can find several articles on my www.tngun.com website discussing how to prepare the foods mentioned for long-term storage – just use the search function, or click the food and water link under “Categories”.
