10 Cans of soup/ More Tomato stuff
10 Cans of soup get what your family likes to eat.
More Tomato stuff, Tomato sauce,paste,whole tomatoes,crushed tomatoes,paste, pasta sauce if you don’t make your own. All the tomato products that you use. We use a lot of tomato products so I can as much as I can but sometimes I still need to buy some from the store. You can figure out how much you use in a month then times that by 12 then you will have an idea of how much you use in a year. I buy tomato sauce in the big number 10 cans since I make my own pasta sauces and enchilada sauces. We use a lot of rotel, stewed and crushed tomato’s so I try to can enough of these to last all year. If you don’t can them, try to find them on sale then buy as much as you can or just pick up a few extra every time you go to the store.
Put back more water.
Add some more to your money stash.
