I am soooooo excited to announce a new collaboration effort to bring the best of Food Storage Made Easy right into your phone. I have spent the last several years trying to find an inventory app that could actually do everything I wanted it to do. I had finally resigned myself to thinking I needed to create one … until I ran into the folks from PARA at PrepperCon last summer. I immediately knew that this was the solution I was looking for!
Key Features of Para
COMMUNITY-DRIVEN APP: Para collects and delivers the vast amounts of experience and knowledge spread throughout the preparedness community.
EXPERT PREPAREDNESS LISTS: Access over a hundred expert-curated lists for a myriad of situations… and new ones are constantly being added.
LISTS + SUPPLEMENTAL ACTIVITIES: Preparedness lists come packaged with useful activities to offer a holistic approach to your readiness.
BUILT-IN INVENTORY MANAGEMENT: Easily track and manage all your preparedness items by location and container. Organization becomes simple with Para.
PURCHASE WITH CONFIDENCE: With Para, purchasing the recommended items is safe and secure, and easily integrates with Amazon.
GET REGULAR NOTIFICATIONS: We help you all along the way by notifying you of expiring items, overdue activities and many other things.
Food Storage Made Easy Integration
ALL 26 CHECKLISTS: Do you love your Food Storage Made Easy book and/or eBook? Now all of the checklists are located directly in the PARA app.
UPDATED PRODUCT RECOMMENDATIONS: All items I recommend to buy in the checklists have been updated with my personal recommendation and are available to purchase directly within the app if found on Amazon.
INTEGRATED INVENTORY: This is my favorite part! If a checklist tells you to buy wheat, then after you buy your wheat it will update your inventory including the location it is stored. WINNING!
UPDATED ACTIVITIES: All of the education and information is housed within the app. I’ve updated them and you will always have the most current version on your phone. No more waiting for updates to be published.
RECIPES: All of the recipe appendix will be included within the appropriate lists. We have big plans to make this an even more robust tool for curating recipes. Be excited … this is very exciting!
