IF YOU ARE STILL IN THE PROCESS OF RAISING CHILDREN, BE AWARE. THE TINY FINGERPRINTS THAT SHOW UP ON ALMOST EVERY NEWLY CLEANED SURFACE, THE TOYS SCATTERED AROUND THE HOUSE, THE PILES AND PILES OF LAUNDRY LYING AROUND TO BE TACKLED, WILL DISAPPEAR ALL TOO SOON. AND, YOU WILL, TO YOUR SURPRISE, MISS THEM PROFOUNDLY. THOMAS S. MONSON

Food Storage Crisis


Last night we were talking about our food supply, and what we need to do to get it in order. We have a big chest freezer that has about 3 months worth of food in it now, but if we lose power, that doesn't help us for three months. Anyways, Joel suggested that we store 1 gallon of ice cream for each person in our family. Their most favorite kind. So if we lose power, we have to eat the ice cream first! So every year on our birthday we will rotate out the ice cream of out choice! He loves ice cream so I am not surprised he came up with this brilliant scheme.

With the huge increase in gas, and the price of lots of food going up, it is time to store up. Only if it means a few extra things on your grocery list every week.

Okay so I guess there are MANY ways to look at food storage. :) Stock up the pantry items too, that way power outages won't be an issue. I keep TONS of snack type things in my storage because I know how cranky everyone in our house gets without comfort food. During a disaster, or hard time, cranky people on top of it all is the last thing we will need!
