“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.
40 Pounds rice / Batteries
40 Pounds of rice, Wal-Mart has rice for 8.92 for 20 LBS. When storing I just put in a bucket and add some bay leaves then put the lid on and store in my shed. We do get hard freezes in the winter so the rice gets froze to kill all the bugs. You might want to put in the freezer for 24 hours before you put in buckets if you don’t get hard freezes or it won’t be stored where it will freeze. Also adding a couple bay leaves will help deter bugs.
Batteries, All sizes Rechargeable would be great and remember you can charge the AA in the outside solar lights. also get regular batteries for when you don’t have a way to charge. Something else that would be nice if you could afford it is a solar battery charger.
Are you getting any do it yourself books? If you can’t afford books look online for downloads there is a lot of free information that is downloadable out there.
How is the crocheting or knitting coming along? Remember if you don’t have anyone to teach you U Tube has some great videos.
