Southern Utah Food Storage is All About Food Storage

 Well let’s think about it. All the food we have in our homes is what we call storage.

If you have a little bit of food in your home you have a little bit of food storage. If you have a six months supply of food in your home you have a six month supply of food storage. If you have a year’s supply of food inside your home you will be able to feed your family for a year, or whatever length of time you wish to store.

You say to me; Yes, but we go out to dinner every night. OK, what happens if all the restaurants in your community have all of their cooks or their waitresses go on strike?

What if at the same time you have nothing in your home to eat? What is the road you need to drive to get to the closest store you can by food at is not passable?

If you have no food in storage, what will you do? “That would have happened to us when a flood washed out a bridge that we have to cross to go to the nearest grocery store? We stayed at home for several days. Thank goodness for our food storage. What if you know a family with nothing to eat and you are not in a position to help them? You would be very sad, wouldn’t you?

If you have extra food in your house, you could throw dinner together and take to them. Wouldn’t that make you feel better? The needy neighbor knows why we have food storage. When they are able to they start obtaining food storage.

Some people put a specific amount of money in the budget to save until they have sufficient funds to place bulk orders from a company that sell emergence food supply and other items that might be needed.

 Also, you may choose to buy in bulk from a local whole seller. Some food storage items you can obtain yourself by canning produce and/or freezing from your own garden and fruit trees.

You may have a group that orders smaller amounts of a food storage item as a group. Food storage Companies have specials each month. If you order from the special you can save money. Do not ask me who I recommend; because, they are good.

Do a search on the web for “food storage companies”. Also, you may choose to purchase from a local wholesaler in your area, or buy your supplies from a local grocer along with case lots of fruits and/or vegetables.

We live in a rural area with not enough neighbors to have any nearby stores. The closest small country store is about 30 minutes away. That store doesn’t stalk everything we need. Anything retail store large enough to sell everything we use is about 20 minutes away.

I grew up in a rural area on a farm. My mother and everyone I knew grew big gardens and canned and/or dried food to use during the upcoming year. They also had fruit trees and bushes. I remember sitting up in the trees eating apples. They also had fruit trees and bushes.  I remember sitting up in trees eating apples. That was a great hiding place.

Another reason to store food is in case of a disaster and you cannot purchase food; because, the road is out and you cannot get there. I hope nothing ever happens to prevent you from being able to feed your family.

We have actually had times when because of a loss of income, we were thankful we had our food storage.

Maybe you would like to contact a food storage company and adjust your budget enough to build your food storage.

If you live where you can plant a garden and save money on your grocery budget, go far it.
