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 filling 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 / Canned Fruit.
1000 Multi-Vitamins, It is a good idea to take vitamins on a daily basis since most of our foods don’t have enough nutrients in them like they used to. If you are in a situation where you are having to rely on your food storage that more than likely means you are under a lot more stress and probably are being more physical, so you will need the extra vitamins and minerals that you get from a good multivitamin. This is one thing that you want to make sure and rotate as you use. Get the vitamins that you use on a daily basis. I like to get mine from Puritans pride they have reasonable prices and several to choose from.
Canned fruit you can either can your own or get from the store. Wal-Mart has canned fruit from 98 cents up to 1.86 depending on what you get. Also plant fruit trees if possible, this way you will always have a supply of fruits.
