Are you trying to get going on your long term food storage, but feeling overwhelmed by lack of money or space? There is still a lot you can do, even with a limited budget and small footprint!
If there is one thing we can say about our current economic, financial, social and political climate it’s that we have entered an era in human history of total unpredictability.
Getting ready before that first hurricane watch comes will alleviate a lot of worries and last minute rushing around. Do yourself and your family a favor and get ready now.
There has never been a more appropriate time to start stocking up on long life foods that can see you through a crisis. Likewise, if you know nothing about growing vegetables this summer would be an excellent time to learn, best to make mistakes before an event than during it.

To prep or produce. Both are necessary. Storing stuff is smart. But how long will that your stored fuel last? And how much is enough? It will eventually go bad or be consumed. I have gas stored for emergencies, but not long-term use.
The way we are being pushed and squeezed by regulations that govern every facet of our life we will soon only be able to defecate when our allotted time slot comes around.
As with all things related to preparation, it is wise to have a plan before you need it.
