I just found this board (through a search on food storage) though I'm not new to JM I have not been active for many months possibly even almost two years as my interest groups moved over to facebook. Anyhow...
I am just getting starte with my food storage plan. and am kind of looking for a little direction. I was raised in a big family and we always had a big garden and canned as much as possible, hunted for a big portion of our meat or raised our beef and pork on the farm. So we always had a lot of food in storage at any given time.
After moving out on my own, I lived alone for years and didn't really think too much about food storage. But now that I have a family (DH and two boys), and because I lost my job because of the economy two years ago we are now a one income family so food storage seems to be what I feel I need to do 'just in case' DH should get laid off or something like that.
I have read a little about the 'classic lds food storage' and I guess at this stage I'm trying to get orginized with building the 3 mth supply right now. I seem to spend way more hours learning about it than actually doing it. It just seems overwhelming to me, but maybe I'm just overthinking it, which I tend to do.
We have quite a bit. Our plannis still the same as it has always been.
