Surprise #2: 2nd Edition Extreme Food Storage Makeover for Families in Need


Welcome back to our Food Storage Suprise Party!
Today we are announcing the GIFT part of the party!
Did you get the invite? Go here if you didn’t.

If you have followed our blog for a while you will remember the Food Storage Extreme Makeover that we did for Grandma Lori over the past year or so. We loved helping her get her food storage put together and we knew that we wanted to do it for MORE people.

As part of our Food Storage Party, the GIFT is going to be for some families in need. We will be giving them their own makeovers complete with education, personal guidance and even a good start with some FOOD, and YOU CAN HELP! Also, we don’t want anyone to feel left out so EACH OF YOU will receive something out of this too, read the WHOLE post to find it. We know it’s long. We’ll be choosing the families in need from reader nominations, so make sure to read to the end of the post to find out how to nominate a family in need!


We (Jodi and Julie) are going to be providing the families with education, personalized game plans, and more tools to help them get well on their way. However, we need your help with the FOOD part of the makeover. Here’s how it will work. Did you know that Shelf Reliance does home parties? Well if you host a home party, you get “host benefits”. The host benefits are 10% in FREE product of the total amount purchased at the party. Since we became consultants last month, we’ll be able to host an ONLINE PARTY! The online party will start RIGHT NOW and will last for 3 weeks. We will donate the “host benefit”s earned through our online party, which is 10% of anything purchased to the families in need.

Since we’re Shelf Reliance consultants, we have our own Shelf Reliance store, which is: http://JodiandJulie.ShelfReliance.com/Home When you shop through our Shelf Reliance store (during this online party, or ANYTIME after that), you get better pricing than the regular Shelf Reliance store. We’ll be going over some of the discounts this week, along with some of their shelving, food, and emergency preparedness products. One of the main reasons we chose to be consultants is because so many of our readers love the Shelf Reliance shelves, and you can get the big fancy $459 shelf, for $270 through our store! SWEET (make sure you hit add to cart to see that price).

  • If you’re in the market for any Shelf Reliance products, shop through our store: http://JodiandJulie.ShelfReliance.com/Home for the next 3 weeks, and 10% of all sales will be donated in food to help families. (Shop after that, and you still get the discounts!)
  • If you don’t know much about Shelf Reliance products, stay tuned this week for a quick intro to some of their great stuff, then decide if you’ll want to, and be able to help
  • If you aren’t in the market for anything from Shelf Reliance, and still want to help the families that will be chosen, you can donate any amount here (even just $1 can help) which will be used to help purchase products the families may need that Shelf Reliance doesn’t offer.

  • If you’re not in a position to purchase or donate, send us some tips you have to build Food Storage on a budget. We understand not everyone is in a position to participate formally in this, and we totally understand that! WE WILL TAKE THESE TIPS AND MAKE THEM INTO A HANDOUT FOR EACH OF YOU! Told you each of you would receive something out of this too.

    Can I nominate my own family? I had slowly been able to build up a rotating 3 month supply, and was happy I had it when I suddenly needed shouler surgery, and then a month later my husband lost his job. He was out of a job for 6 months, and we were able to live off of my 3 month supply and the help that friends and family could give. OVer the past year we have been recovering, but I have been having a hard time building up my 3 month supply while recovering financially. Please let me know, becaue I would love to be able to nominate our family.

      Marcy,
      So sorry to hear – unfortunately we had picked the families by the
      time we got this. We wish you the best, and will think of you in the
      future if we do this again

    I have been able to slowly start rebuilding our stockpile by using coupons and buying several of each item. Some to use, some to store. Little by little it is adding up again after sustaining us through a major illness that had me in bed for a month.
