Are you confused about Food Storage? Don’t know how to get started with your Food Storage? Most people get discouraged because storing food seems so big and impossible. Just remember, food storage starts with baby steps.
We can begin ever so modestly. We can begin with a one week’s food supply and gradually build it to a month, and then to three months, to a year. Don’t get overwhelmed, begin in a small way and gradually build toward a reasonable objective that works best for you!!
MAIN REASONS FOR STORING FOOD:
** Having a supply of essential foods and supplies will sustain life in emergencies and natural disasters.
** Having what we need and knowing what to do in the event of an emergency or an unforeseen life situation can bring us peace of mind.
** Teaches us basic food preparation in case of an emergency.

GETTING STARTED WITH FOOD STORAGE WITH BABY STEPS:
Baby Step #1 Create a Food Storage Plan
Create a plan. In doing so you can ask yourself the following questions, and as you do so, you will see a plan before buying anything you and your family members need for your food storage to begin to form.
* Why am I building a supply of food?
* What kind of foods do I want to include?
* How will I plan what to buy for my supply?
* How much money can I afford? (couponing will help big time here)
* How will I shop for my food supply?
So make your list for these questions and come back next week for the next baby step for ideas on storage space and shelving.
