Deals to Meals is a terrific resource for information on beginning your own food storage journey - or continuing in the effort with renewed vigor! This young, hip, Utah mom has turned her love of family and food storage into a business and she supplies the Utah valley with weekly updates as to what is on sale in their area. While this is of little use to those of us in Michigan, her site is packed with free downloads (food storage inventory sheets!), recipes (she posted MY wheat bread recipe, which I stole from a friend in Troy), and terrific how-to videos for so many different areas of preparedness. Check her out for sure. This one is my favorite because it's a terrific overview of what food storage is and what it looks like for a family. When you see the Best Wheat Bread Recipe (and it is!), scroll to the bottom of the page and watch the 3 Easy Steps video. It will breathe new life into you, I promise!
Side note on $aving money as you store up: CouponMom is a resource that lists the grocery deals for a long list of stores nationwide. It's FREE! They scour the ads, connect them with Sunday paper coupons and save you a ton of time. If coupons are not your thing, it's still much faster than going to each individual store to see what's on sale. Food storage is much easier if you buy only what is on sale and buy it in bulk. That way you never pay more than .59 for a can of tomatoes again.
