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.

1000 Multi-Vitamins / Dry soups and crackers.
1000 Multi-Vitamins, Wal-Mart has a 200 count for 7.74. I buy mine at Puritans Pride they almost always have a sale going on.These will be important since during high-stress situations you more than likely will not be eating correctly and you will need your vitamins more than ever.
Dry Soups and crackers, dry soups are handy since they are easy to store and you just need to add water and warm.
Crackers need to be repacked into jars and vacuum sealed if they are stored for very long in the original package they will taste like plastic and are just plain nasty ( believe me I know haha) Even when dry packed they don’t have a very long shelf life.You can also make your own Just go here to see how they are pretty easy to make.
Are you working on your packs?
How is the CPR and 1st aid coming along?
Add some more to your water storage, whether you buy from the store or fill your own containers.
Add some more money to your money stash, even if it is a very small amount it all adds up in the end.
Continue planning your garden and getting it ready.
About the only thing I got done was 40 more jars of beef vegetable soup and I worked on the garden spot where we are going to put our raised beds.
