It’s been awhile since I wrote a prepping-related post, but winter always makes me think of stocking up for disaster.
If you are just getting into the field of survival and prepping, you know how important it is to have a good stockpile of food, but you might be intimidated by the amount of food that you’ve seen other preppers accumulate. Just because they might have a basement that’s brimming with canned goods and rice doesn’t mean you need to do the same thing overnight. Here are some tips you can follow so you can build your own food supply.
You can start slowly, and that’s exactly what you should do. In fact, start with just a 72-hour supply of extra food in the house. Over the course of a few weeks or a month, you can build your supply of extra food up to an entire week’s worth. Just a couple of extra cans when you go to the grocery store is all you need to do.
You also need to think about the amount of space you have available to store the food. Depending on your current living situation, you might not have room for more than a month or two’s supply of food at most. Maybe less. If you have a bugout location that’s safe and has storage, you can move some of your nonperishable items there too. This way, you can build your food storage in both locations.
Focus on the staples. You need rice, oatmeal, beans, and powdered milk. You need some canned foods that will last for years. What you don’t need to do is spend a fortune on crazy freeze-dried foods that are overpriced for the amount you get. Always make sure you are getting a good deal on anything you buy. As you can see, it’s possible to start up a food supply relatively easily. Get started now.
