A Round Up of Food Storage Resources

A Roundup of Food Storage Resources via The Survival Mom

New to the idea of stocking up on food? I was once a complete newbie, too!

I advise you to set a goal of 30 days worth of extra food — that is, food that is put away,  out of sight and out of mind. Everything in your new food storage pantry needs to be “shelf stable”, that is, it doesn’t require refrigeration and can be stored anywhere. If storage space is limited in your household, you can store this food in bins, under beds, on closet shelves — pretty much anywhere that remains cool throughout the year.

First things first

Before buying anything, you must know about the “6 Enemies of Food Storage.” Read this article first!

This knowledge will help you store your food in optimal conditions, giving you the longest shelf life possible. Old food, or food that has deteriorated due to the food storage enemies, loses nutrients, color, flavor, texture. Eating it won’t kill you, but it won’t be appetizing either, nor will it be full of the nutrients you desire.

Here’s the round-up

All these articles have value and together, will give you an expansive knowledge of food storage. If you have questions, shoot me an email at lisa @thesurvivalmom.com
