Did you know September is Preparedness month?I am not one of those doom and gloom kind of people. However, with the recent tragedies of weather and as we just came upon the 10 year anniversary of one of the biggest events that have affected all of our lives, (and let’s not forget the fact that food prices keep rising and RISING), I have been steadily working on my food storage. I buy things at their rock bottom price and stock up my pantry. In my effort to save, I stumbled upon Deals to Meals.
Have you ever checked out Deals to Meals? Oh my goodness is it awesome. Shandra Madsen shows you how to easily stock up on food storage and incorporate the items in your everyday lives. She shows you awesome recipes and how to perfect items your family loves.
I was always scared to cook with beans due to the time and …. AFTER AFFECTS, hahaha. After following her bean month, I will tell you that my kids’ favorite food is my white chicken chili. They absolutely love it!!!
I am much more open to incorporating better foods in our diets. She has great tips and shows you how to easily put together a food storage plan. As she shows in one of her videos, you don’t just want to stock up on macaroni/spaghetti and peanut butter. You want to incorporate full meals that your family could be sustained on. No, I don’t have a year’s worth of food in my house or anything, but in the event that I didn’t get paid for some time or the stores were all closed, I know our family wouldn’t be too frantic over it. At least we wouldn’t starve!
Shandra explains on her blog how her family stocks up on food when they receive windfalls, such as tax return money. She is more excited over food than clothes and jewelry. I never was too thrilled with my grocery shopping until I started following her site. If you haven’t checked her out, I really think you should. I am sure her blog could help you!
