"We can begin ever so modestly. We can begin with one week's food supply and gradually build it to a month and then to three months...I fear that so many feel that a long-term food supply is so far beyond their reach that they make no effort at all."

in the past i have posted about food storage and eventually forgot about it and didn't post again. ( unfortunately this seems to be a pattern in my life) well, i have a spark again and have mapped out some goals to get our food storage in place. currently our food storage isn't half bad, but i would like to be more organized about it. so i am going to attempt again to post about food storage, but this time i have a six goal plan as follows:
Goal #1: Create 72 hour kits for each family member and a car emergency kit
Goal #2: Get a two week water supply
Goal #3: Set aside a financial reserve
Goal #4: One month supply of basic food storage
Goal #5: One month supply of expanded food storage
Goal #6: One month supply of non food storage
after completing these six goals, i plan to go through goals #3-#6 and work on a 3 month supply, then a 6 month supply and maybe even a 12 month supply.
i plan on doing a more detailed post about each of these goals as me and my family
achieve them. i also plan on posting some other food storage related posts that support the goals. hopefully this will be helpful to some of you that are trying to create food storage in your homes as well.
so who's with me?
LET'S GET STARTED!!!
