So being a faithful member of my religion, it is drilled into our heads to have a stable amount of food storage that is accessible at all times. There are even some people that register for these kinds of things on their wedding gift registry. So keeping this in mind, my food storage consists of the stuff I have in cupboards. Lots of oatmeal packets, and half a gallon of vegetable oil.
I had a mini panic from looking at pictures of the hurricane stuff down in Texas and realized that I'm aware money is tight, but we need a find a way to build up this food storage, even if it's a tiny bit by tiny bit. So I'm here for suggestions. I'm not ready to go all 50lb bag of beans per person, per year type. I just don't think I can commit to that much food, but you know, the little things.
What do you have in your food storage that you think would be good to start with? What things have you noticed are unnecessary. And where in the world in Oregon do you go about buying the church distributed canned goods, like the really cheap dried milk (sick!-but unfortunately is pretty necessary)?
