So a few months ago, I helped my Grandma move into her new house. My Grandma lived in the same house for almost 80 years. I’m not kidding almost 80 YEARS. She lived in the same house as a little girl, then lived in it as a married woman. As we were unpacking the truck, you can imagine how giddy I got when we got to the part of the truck that had her Food Storage. I couldn’t believe it, the stuff I was looking at was so vintage… I’m guessing the food was over 30 years old, which is another discussion in and of itself, but don’t judge my Grandma, I love her anyways!
I thought you all would get a kick out of the brochure I found in one of the boxes. It appears as though she bought from a company that sold through consultants at parties. I thought that concept was new, but I guess it’s been around a lot longer than I thought. Open the pdf and scroll down and check out how much a 1 year supply of food is. Too bad prices aren’t that awesome anymore. Anyways, the bulk of this post, is in this historical document – so check it out. It’s a fun read for any food storage junkies!
If you’re feeling sad about how much food you could get for so little back then, don’t be too sad. Next week watch your email (if you’re not on our checklists, or newsletter list, make sure you are) for a list of ALL THE BLACK FRIDAY sales we will be having. We will also be pointing to other companies that are having them too. Christmas is approaching, and Food Storage items are a great gift. I think I’ll be getting my Grandma some “NEWER” food.
