Week 9 Deep Pantry/ Food Storage Challenge

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A prudent person foresees the danger ahead and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences. Proverbs 27:12

Remember having a deep pantry isn’t just about having extra food on hand. It is also about having the means to survive in an emergency situation, having all the extra food isn’t going to do you much good if you can’t cook it when the power is out. If you are having a hard time trying to afford to fill a deep pantry read my post on “having a Deep Pantry on a tight budget.

Don’t forget to share what you were able to do this past week to have a deep pantry/food storage. Let’s encourage each other. And if you have a question feel free to ask or if you have the answer to a question feel free to answer. If you have a tip or idea you can share that also. As I said let’s make this a place where we can share and encourage others to get that deep pantry.

This week you need,

20 cans of soup/ Garden Seeds

20 cans of soup, get what your family will eat, Wal-mat has soups ranging from 1.00 to 1.68. Or can your own.

Seeds, if you haven’t started getting your seeds yet you might want to start getting them, especially if you are ordering them. As you get your seeds go ahead and get some started for your garden. Don’t forget your herb seeds. Try to find heirloom when you can, this way you can save seeds from year to year and will always have a supply of seeds. 

The action item for this month is to learn C.P.R. and some 1st aid. A lot of fire departments and Red Cross centers will offer CPR and basic 1st aid classes for a small fee and sometimes for free.

The extra item this month is packs, we use our hunting packs for this and we take them where ever we go. Each one of us have our own. These would be the same thing as bug out bags. I will try to get a post up soon on what to put in them.

Add some more money to your money stash, even if it is a very small amount it all adds up in the end.

Put back some more water.

Continue planning your garden and getting it ready.

This week I didn’t get a lot done. I did buy 20 pounds of cheese that was on sale, a case of diaper wipes and a large pack of T.P.. Other than that all I did was work on taxes and fair stuff.

So what were you able to get done this week?

    If you worked on tax stuff, then you did a lot. That takes time to get it all together. Also fair stuff. I was on the fair board for several years, so was my husband. It takes a lot of dedication. While I enjoyed it at the time, I don’t miss it now! Good luck! ….Vicky in Ky

      I hate trying to do taxes lol if I would be a little more organized during the year it would help haha.
      The fair board really is taking a lot of time, all the previous board resigned after the commissioners appointed an advisory board to look in to some of the things they were doing so we have had a hard time getting any previous records and what we do get isn’t very detailed so we are pretty much starting at zero. We are starting to make some headway though ( after very several late night meetings). So I am pretty excited at what we are doing and are planning on doing.
      I might be emailing you to ask a few questions if you don’t mind, I am looking for ideas for various things.
      Have a great day
