If you’re following Grandma Lori’s Extreme Food Storage Makeover, you know that last week we left off with a “to be continued” after Julie asked Lori all the questions to make Grandma Lori’s personal 3 month plan.

Julie opened up her favorite computer software program…. excel… and went to town putting in Lori’s dinner recipes into our 3 month supply planning sheet.


  • We put in 12 different dinners, then repeated the more popular ones to get 30 days of dinners
  • We then watched excel do all the math for a 3 month supply
  • We put in a variety of lunch, snack and breakfast ideas and guessed what she would use in a month and allowed excel to do the math to get us 3 months
  • To see the completed excel click here
  • We now have printed her master ingredient list (see pdf)



  • We’re going to inventory what Lori has on hand and put it into excel
  • We’ll see what’s left to buy
  • Buy and stock pantry

Stay tuned as we keep at it… This is not an overnight project!
