Buying a 3 Month Supply in Bulk

Three Month Supply
Ideally, you will purchase your 3 month supply little by little, while taking advantage of sales. However, maybe you haven't gotten around to it, you haven't been able to afford it, or you don't trust your ability to stay on top of sales. You might not live close to regular grocery stores, or you could have any other reason to not add to your 3 month supply little by little. If any of those reasons to not add to your 3 month supply bit by bit sound like you, you may choose to use your tax refund (or a big chunk of change) and buy a lot of it all at once. When we were helping Grandma Lori with her Food Storage Makeover, she did a big bulk buy for…

Food Storage Calculator FAQ

Food Storage Calculator FAQ

Long Term Food Storage
We have been getting a lot of questions lately about our food storage calculators so we wanted to answer them in a post rather than just in individual emails and comments.

In BabyStep 3 we have a 3 month supply spreadsheet which allows you to enter in specific meals/snack items to get an exact amount of food to store for exactly 3 months worth of meals that your family normally eats.

Food Storage Pep Talk

Events, food storage books, Networking
We had a great time this weekend at the Food Storage Fair in Ogden - yes yes, we know - why don't they do these things EVERYWHERE? We were asked to be presenters and we had a vendor booth to sell our eBooks (that we put on Disc for shows and expos) and WonderMills. It was so much fun and we LOVED the enthusiasm everyone there had for Food Storage. The only drawback of the event was that while we were manning our booth, we couldn't go to all the excellent classes. BUT luckily some of our favorite readers were there and we're going to work on convincing them to share (hint hint Becky -making mozzarella cheese out of powdered milk....)    Our class was for people who were "Getting…

Jodi and Julie’s Food Storage New Years Resolutions

General
If you've been following us for awhile, you know at the beginning of  last year we had some New Years Resolutions. Well it's a new year, and it's time for new resolutions. We both have a big goal to help Jodi's mom get her food storage in order, as well as some of our own resolutions. My sweet mom (Grandma Lori) donated her food dehydrator to me when we first started to learn about food storage. However, I haven't been ambitious enough to use it yet. We have had some great tips and resources sent in by readers and I am determined to put some of it into action. When first getting started in food storage, all of the disaster/emergency prep stuff really overwhelmed me. Now that I have food…
