Why Should I Have Food Storage?

Growing up in the LDS (Mormon) faith, I have been counseled on numerous occasions to have my own food storage. I didn’t pay much attention to the specifics as a child, but I dutifully helped my parents prepare theirs with lots of gardening, canning, and then marking all those cans with Sharpies, packing them in boxes, and trying to find places for them in our small house. As a young married student, I started taking interest in starting my own home storage, but I wasn’t sure of what to do. Every class that I attended made me more confused about how I could accomplish such a feat.

I decided to take matters into my own hands. I have since then devised a method for food storage that should work reasonably well for anyone who wants to use it. Specifically, this section of my blog is for people who want to have store food but . . .

1. Have a limited budget.

2. Have only 1 fridge/freezer.

3. Don’t have a garden, or just a really small one.

4. Don’t have a cellar or big pantry.

You have no more excuses, so it’s time to get to work. 🙂
