In this episode, Daisy Luther drops back by. We discuss starting and stocking your prepper pantry, cutting the grocery bills, and being a foodie in the apocalypse.
Let’s face it, building out and stocking a good pantry isn’t sexy for most of us. It’s meticulous work requiring a lot of thought and care — especially for new preppers. Stocking food and water doesn’t go bang, isn’t shiny, won’t word off zombies, and isn’t something we can brag to our friends about. (Well you could, but it’s not advisable.)
And it can require a lot of planning ahead. You must know what your family will and won’t’ eat. There’s no point in stocking and squirreling away food items if it’s going to go uneaten. You may be thinking, “they can just eat it or go hungry” or you may be thinking, “if they’re hungry enough they will eat it”. But this creates unnecessary stress for everyone. Why bother?
But with a bit of thought, planning, observation, and smart buying you can put together a great pantry. Then it’s just a matter of maintenance; that’s the easy part.
There are many considerations, obviously. Fortunately, Daisy did most of the thinking for you and shares her great tips and strategies with you in this episode…
