WOW, That's impressive ya'll. I love the grocery game, and i'm a big coupon freak too. But as for food storage........
Sorry , we don't have nothing but a few dented cans of peas and a pk of noodles. I am trusting our goverment to take care of us in our time of need like a good girl. No need to come around here looking for food, cause we don't have any. I don't want any more food then a few days worth , I wouldn't want anyone to think I was hording food.
That is a bad idea. FEMA, and other Emergency Operation Centers all over the US, mandate that every person stock up for at least a minimum of 3 days.
I live in hurricane alley, and Florida started to get it right after Hurricane Andrew. Because we where out of power for 11 days for Hurricane Wilma- I am planning for at least 11 to 20 days with no running water, power and food for that time.
I had power when I had fuel for my generator. I eventually got more fuel cans as time went along, and I will probably stock up on more fuel cans. Same with water cans.
I bought a single stove that uses sterno cans for heating-used it the other day to heat a can of chunky soup-took about 10 minutes to boil in a can, and tasted good. I also have 2 Coleman propane stoves as well.
I prefer to be as prepared as possible.
There are not many days left until June 1st.
The less I rely on Uncle Sugar the better off I will be.
My mother did the POD dance to get ice, but we had plenty of food, as we cooked what was frozen off the charcoal grill and made do, with what we had.
My generator did get a work out so I had power, when I had fuel. I eventually picked up battery operated fans as my sister's kids will get cranky when it gets hot.
Prepare or face the consequences of not preparing. Not trying to be mean, but those that do not prepare, or ones most likely to come knocking on my door, accusing me of hoarding food.
Invaders will be repelled.
