“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 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.

50 pounds beans / Garbage bags

50 pounds of beans, get what your family likes to eat . Also get a variety from pintos, black bean kidney beans etc. but I like I said get what your family likes to eat and what you like to cook with.


Garbage bags, get different sizes these have so many other uses other than holding garbage. Hope to have a post on that in the near future.


The extra item this month is, Do It Your Self Books. It is handy to have books on things you are wanting to learn or even what you all ready know so that you have a reference if you need. These make great Christmas gifts to give and to ask for.


The action item this month is to learn to crochet or knit. This way you can make your blankets, socks, scarves, hats, and gifts. If you don’t have anyone to teach you u-tube has a lot of how to videos. Just start simple then work your way up. I taught myself when I was in my twenty’s, in fact, I started on string making dollies, it was several years before I started on yarn. Now my goal is to spin my own yarn to use.  I love being able to crochet while watching T.V.


Add some more to your water supply.


Try to put back some more in your money stash I know December is hard to put back money, but even if it is a small amount. As I have said every little bit helps and adds up.
