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.
5 LBS Baking soda / 1st Aid items
Baking soda, Wal-Mart has 64 oz. baking soda for 1.98. I get my baking soda at IFA (our local feed store) for 12.99 for 50 LBS, It is just called sodium bicarbonate I use it for everything from cooking to cleaning and making my washing soda with it.
1st aid items, start with the basics here is a list that you can find here of things to start with, and a list here of natural things you can store and use in place of store bought. I have store bought put back but try to use natural whenever I can.
As you plan your garden set apart a 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 you 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.
This past week I was able to finish paying off one of my credit card, A friend gave me a bag of wool roving, I have been planning my garden and my herb garden I am wanting to do things a little differently this year, I bought three bags of myers lemons to make some honey lemon for tea, bought some extra sewing machine needles and some extra thread, and a couple extra boxes of tea bags. Remember a deep pantry is more then just food, it is other things you need and use.
So what were you able to add this past week to your deep pantry/food storage? Please feel free to share so we can encourage and give ideas to others. Also please feel free to share any tips or ideas for deep pantries.
Have a great week
