Default long term food storage

do y'all have food storage? if so did you do MRE's, just rice beans and can goods, or one of those food companies like Patriate food supply? I'm pretty late to the party but better now than later.

Costco sells an Emergency food bucket with just add water meals.

Says it doesn't expire for 25 years.

Of course same applies to hot dogs at 7-11

We have some non-perishables stored, but increased our garden by 100% and likely will get some yard birds and goats.

LDS Food Pantry, is a source for staples. One used to "can your own" over in the
Carrollton tx. Here is a price list.

https://providentliving.churchofjesu...s-map?lang=eng

The cooler one keeps the food, the longer it keeps. A storage locker insulated w/
4 inches of RMAX mand a small window air conditioning unit and a controller,

https://www.storeitcold.com/

will keep a fair sized room 35*- 38* F year round.

Remember $ per calorie too!

being a hillbilly pays off sometimes . but the reality is it could happen here so if you do your farming at krogers you might have a problem. you can grow a ton of food in plastic barrels cut into troughs . at least mre's will keep you alive .

Stock up on spices too especially pepper sauces. Those "18 servings" of cheese grits etc.
kind of get bland after a while. But if one is hungry Ham and M.Fers were eatable (from
c-rats)?

A crapload of 5 gallon buckets full of dried foods that keep well. Big mylar bags with the air sucked out, and those oxygen absorbers put in.

Tossed several big boxes of MRE's on the shelf, along with a bunch of mountain house stuff. All manner of other things that keep for 5 years or more, most of it 10 years or more. Even sardines. Canned stuff. Craploads of heirloom seeds, and a lot of food plants just growing wild on my property now, waiting for the time when they're needed.

At 3 meals per day I have enough for me and 4 other people to live for about 6 years before we have to start growing anything. Although I'd start doing that immediately. Got the guns, ammo, building materials, supplies, etc. All stored away. Now I can forget about it and not even have to think about any of that crap anymore.

It's worth it for the peace of mind. If these evil/retarded scumbags want to hyper inflate the dollar, at least I'll get to eat.

i grew up with my grandparents . i can remember going to town once a month to get a few things. was a big deal . they grew everything we ate . traded eggs and such for beef . papa would half a hog with a friend every year plus hunting and fishing . you could have cut that small town off from the outside world and they would be fine . every house had a garden and chickens . some had a milk cow . people need to get back to a simpler life . i worry about friends who have no more than 2 days of food on hand . it could happen here .

I'm looking for the "Like" button.

Same here. Grandparents on both sides had huge gardens and raised most of their food. Had cows, chickens, pigs, and turkeys. They didn't buy much from the store.

Well, with the shortage of Mexican we will be have a food shortage. As some states have declared large amount of unemployment due to not having alot of Mexican around.
Time to start building robots to start doing our work!!!!!

I'm thinking probably 2025 or something, you'll see those Tesla robots around.

No more paying the maid to come deep clean the house once a month. Sounds pretty nice.

Imagine if it will do a good job washing and drying your car. Imagine always having a clean, freshly washed car. Yeah I could do that myself but fuck that
