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.

As you plan your garden set apart space for an herb garden to use for medicines, and to cook with. Also, look around where you live and find what grows naturally in your area.
Do you have your garden planned and are you are getting your seeds and plants found, ordered, or bought? 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.
Add some more water. Fill your own containers or buy some.
Put a little more into your money stash, remember every little bit helps and adds up.
