Don’t forget to share what you were able to do this past week to have a deep pantry/food storage. Lets encourage each other. And if you have a question feel free to ask or if you have the answer to a question feel free to answer. Or if you have a tip or idea you can share that also. As I said lets make this a place where we can share and encourage to get that deep pantry.
5 Pounds Shortening, oils, or lard / Canned meat.
Shortening, lard, or oils. Shortening will last longer then oils if kept in a cool place. I keep lard and just rotate it, same as shortening if keep in a cool, place it will keep longer. I also have some tallow and lard canned which helps to keep it longer. Wal-Mart has 8 LBS lard for 9.78, 2 LBS 10 OZ shortening for 3.98, and 1 gallon Vegetable oil for 5.96, Get what you use so you will be able to rotate.
Canned meat, You can can your own or buy store bought. If you can catch a good sale on chicken, ground beef, stew meat or roast can your own it is super easy to can meat. If you don’t can, then just buy store bought tuna, chicken, spam, corned beef, or even freeze dried. If you watch for sales you can pick up tuna for 50 cents. Wal-Mart has tuna for 78 cents a can and 12 oz spam for 2.64, I forgot to check the price of canned chicken but I don’t think it is to bad.
How is the garden planning coming along? Are you expanding or trying to grow some new things this year?
Have you ordered for your seeds yet, or got your seeds found and maybe even getting some of them started.
Add to your water.
Put a little more into your money stash. Remember every little bit helps and adds up.
Have a great week.
What did you do this week for your deep pantry/ food storage?
I didn’t get a lot done, have been trying to get things ready for company Saturday night, we are going to have a bunch of people over to play music. I did get several cans of chicken and beef broth that was on sale, A friend gave me several kombucha starters, I had some but didn’t get it taken care of like I should of I want to make some kombucha and some vinegars.
