Water has been my focus lately. I just realized that without water, all of my storage is pretty much useless. So we've been drinking soda...and I'm gaining weight. UGH!
So, in a nutt-shell, I've had a huge urge to get more food storage.
Now yes, we are living on student loans, and yes, we have no "conventional" place to put all of this food. So of course when I mentioned it to Jeff, he was fine with what we had and felt like we'd be blessed for what we had. Wait till we have a house to do the rest.
I wasn't satisfied. I told Jeff we'd just put it in my closet...I didn't care, I figured that in a major crisis where we're living off food storage, I'd probably kick myself for not getting it done b/c of space.
BUT, I didn't really know how to can food by myself at the cannery, or where to even find it, so I just decided to order these boxes of wheat, quick oats and white rice from the distribution center's website. FREE SHIPPING and the case of rice was actually CHEAPER than buying one from my local cannery!!! SCORE! So, I bought what we could afford and added just a little bit more to our supply. THEN I learned how to can at the cannery and did my sugar and white flour, onions, apples, powdered milk (yuck!) macaroni, beans, and potatoes!!! It was way easy!
After the food was covered, I decided to focus on water. We've been buying 2 L sodas on sale and filling them up with water + 4 drops of bleach, labeling them and adding them to MY CLOSET!
So there you have it. If you're thinking of doing it, DO IT!
