Don’t forget to share what you were able to do this past week to have a deep pantry/food storage. Let’s 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. If you have a tip or idea you can share that also. As I said let’s make this a place where we can share and encourage others to get that deep pantry.
50 pounds flour or wheat / 25 pounds oats
Flour or wheat, If you don’t have a grinder there is no point in getting wheat so get flour. Flour at Wal-Mart is 8.44 for 25 pounds. Whichever you get, flour or wheat, if any way possible freeze it for at least 48 hours this will kill all the little pest in the flour. I store mine outside in a shed and it stays frozen all winter. I have some from 08 that is still good. If storing in the summer, put in the freezer for 48 hours before storing. If you live in a warmer climate you will need to use oxygen absorbers, and put in Mylar bags.( Unless you get flour or wheat that is already in long term storage containers).
Oats, Wal-Mart has oats for 13.58 for 10 pounds or 1.68 for the 2 pounds 10 oz. containers, I get mine at IFA ( our local feed store) they have them for 30.00 for 50 pounds. When storing oats use the same methods as you would for flour or wheat.
Well I apparently wasn’t paying any attention to the date last week. I was supposed to do the new action item and extra item. So I will do that this week (Sorry It’s be kind of crazy around here lol).
So here it is.
The action item for this month is to learn C.P.R. and some 1st aid. A lot of fire departments and Red Cross centers will offer CPR and basic 1st aid classes for a small fee and sometimes for free.
The extra item this month is packs, we use our hunting packs for this and we take them where ever we go. Each one of us have our own. These would be the same thing as bug out bags. I will try to get a post up soon on what to put in them.
Add some more money to your money stash, even if it is a very small amount it all adds up in the end.
Put back some more water.
Continue planning your garden and getting it ready.
This week I didn’t get a lot done. I am trying to start a new business (more about this later) and have been working on that a lot.
So what were you able to get done this week?
