Grandma Lori 3 month supply SHOP!

If you’re following Grandma Lori’s Extreme Food Storage Makeover, you know that last time we left off with a “to be continued” after Julie made Lori her full shopping list based on her recipes she wanted to use in her three month food supply. The post was titled “We have a Plan”

Well last week Julie was running out of ideas for Mother’s Day presents so she called up Grandma Lori and said, lets get this shopping trip done! (Because once the shopping was done, she could do the real present – which is organizing the whole food storage room) Grandma Lori wanted to go ahead and buy all the food up front, then replace through normal use, and sale shopping…. So it made for a big shopping trip to say the least.

Surprisingly however, the shop wasn’t NEARLY as painful as we thought it would be. We took the excel file that had calculated exactly everything she needed and used it as our shopping guide. Before we went to the store, we took inventory of what she already and then we were actually in and out of the store fairly quickly.

So for Mother’s Day, Julie and her husband went to Grandma Lori’s and transformed that room into a BEAUTIFUL site with great shelves(donated from Can Organizers), some reorganizing, and CUTE LABELS – that you all are going to ask her to do a tutorial on how to make them….! Stay tuned because those pictures and video are coming later this week!

    I really enjoy your site. I know that LDS guidelines have changed to 3 months, but to me that doesn’t seem to be nearly long enough. After going through an illness that left me completely dependent on my food storage for one whole year, I’m so glad that I had the food stored that I did. Sites like yours make it easy to understand and very practical. I really started out with your baby steps and building my pantry. I believe it saved my life. Thank you.

    • Thank you for sharing your story. So glad we could help!

  • She had a virus attached to her site so she has temporarily taken it offline until it's fixed.

    I will tell you it was $150. Didn't include perishables such as hamburger and chicken and cheese. Basically canned goods and pastas. Isn't my set-up nice looking? We already made one of the dishes yesterday on Mother's Day.

  • Would you be willing to share a ballpark figure for how much this shopping trip cost? I know each family’s would be different but I’m really curious.
