Food Storage mistakes
What to store
As you study this one-year’s supply list, you may wonder where you can buy the foods listed, if interested. This particular food storage plan is based on products that are available through LDS/Mormon Home Storage Centers. You do not need to be a church member to purchase food at these locations, and if you check the price list; you will be surprised at how inexpensively you can build up a good stock
The other items that are included on the one-year’s supply list are readily available products that you can find at your local markets. Some of these products, like the oils and fats, will need to be rotated on a regular basis.
If you have been prepping for a while, this is a good basic list to judge your storage against, and if you are a beginner, it’s a good guide for getting started. Personally I would consider this list as a minimum one-year supply. It has its faults — carb-heavy for one, but that’s what canned and freeze dried meats and vegetables, as well as some comfort foods are for. I buy minethrough Thrive Life, and have been very happy with the taste, quality, and packaging. (I am a Thrive Life consultant.) But you can purchase a home freeze dryer and make your own 25 year shelf life freeze dried foods a lot less expensively except for the initial cost of the machine.
