Fallacy...I Can't Afford Food Storage.

You've tried. You've talked til you are blue in the face. No matter how hard you've been trying to convert family/friends to your mindset of PYP shopping methods, they still refuse to believe. They refuse to believe that even without coupons they can build a food storage (stockpile) while saving 40%. YOU can still help them. Please share the following information with them.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Food storage for $5/week for 2 people!

Each week take $5.00 and then buy the specified items for that week. Some weeks you will not use all of the $5.00, some weeks you may use more than $5.00. Plan to set aside $5.00 each week regardless. There are also a few weeks you will have nothing to buy, but set aside the money for those weeks as well.

By the end of the 52 weeks you will have 700 lbs. of wheat, 240 lbs. of sugar, 40 lbs. of powdered milk, 13 lbs. of salt, 10 lbs. of honey, 5 lbs. of peanut butter, 45 cans of tomato soup, 32 cans of mushroom soup, 15 cans of tuna fish, 10 boxes of macaroni and cheese, 500 aspirin, 730 multiple vitamins, 6 lbs. of dried yeast, and 6 lbs. of shortening.

This should sustain 2 people for 1 year.

Great concept - makes creating your home storage simple & doable.

However, it would be impossibe to get all of this food for $260 ($5/week for 52 weeks)- maybe I misunderstood?

Here is a link to an order form for the LDS Home Storage Center (probably your best bet on getting most of this list at the lowest cost). http://www.providentliving.org/pfw/multimedia/files/pfw/pdf/120974_HomeStoragePriceSheetSpring2009_pdf.pdf

How are you supposed to buy 100 lbs wheat for $5? Can you do that?

DeAnn said...

Jennifer~ This is a running fund. Some weeks, one will spend less than $5/week. Return excess change to fund. What is eccrued will be used to buy the 100 lbs of wheat.

Nancy~ Perhaps the $5 is less than needed/week. When I did this budget, it was a few years ago. But IF one tried it for just a few $ more/wk, the same benefits/blessings would happen.

I think this is a GREAT plan!

I did note that you said you put this together a few years ago, and that was probably before the skyrocketing inflation on food the last 18 months. I wonder if you might consider updating the amount from $5, to account for the inflation? $5/wk might be a little misleading in light of current grocery/grain prices.

Thank is one heck of a food storage list! Very manageable and in bite-size pieces - excellent approach. Your readers may enjoy this least of items that are typically hoarded in the event of an emergency. http://tinyurl.com/ak88lv
