Idea’s for building an emergency food supply

Are you and your family ready and stocked up with emergency food supply? Or have you been trying to build up an emergency food bank but find your family eating all the food that you are trying to save? For most of us in the beginning building a food bank was frustrating and felt like hitting your head against the wall. Most people including myself felt the need to do everything at once and get it over-with, but this is just not realistic. This project can be easy to do and it can be fun if you have a plan laid out to accomplish the goal.

Advice from experienced preppers

Here are a few links from experienced preppers that can help you get a plan but also answer some common questions that newbies usually have. By using some of the guidelines by experienced people you may end up with a better list of food supplies and it may even save you some money. Just remember that once you get your pantry or food bank filled you will want to tweak it now and then to make sure items stay fresh and preserved. Purchasing to much of some items may be a waste of money because the item may go bad, again this is why it is best to plan ahead and be realistic in what you purchase and store. By doing some research and reading what experienced preppers have learnt themselves over the years can and will save you time and money.

50 tips for emergency food storage

Posted by Tom

I have always had an enthusiasm for homesteading and for living off the grid even though I live in a combination of country and urban setting. Living in Central Florida north of the big cities we have the best of both worlds, country and the conveniences that a person would have living in a large urban city. I personally have had a concern about our weakening economy and how it effects each and every-one of us. The second thing that I have a concern about is how most of the world view’s our country and what may happen one day here in the United States. My Life Experiences I was raised by parents that grew up during the great depression, they passed onto me what life was like and how people had to live during this time period. My family were farmers, gardeners, and homesteaders, they were raised this way and they passed onto me these qualities. I also have family members that live totally off the grid. They live in the North Woods of Minnesota which is a great location for living off the grid. The Southern Homesteader is a passion of mine, I love passing on and sharing information about cooking, news, being self-sufficient, living off the grid, canning, food storage, budgeting, and much more. Since this blog is a passion of mine I am constantly adding and tweaking this site to be a better resource for you. More About Me I grew up in Northern Illinois farm fields. After spending most of my life in large corporate business I decided to relocate to a small town on the nature coast of Central Florida. This is where I met my wife and between us we have 4 wonderful daughters. We have a small homestead where we raise our chicken and live freely. We also have a bug-out place in the mountains of North Carolina that we call our retreat. We spend time there getting things prepared for all our family members when SHTF. I am blessed with a wonderful family and the knowledge that God has given me so I can pass this along to you the readers. I will never tell what you what to do or what to purchase, I just am offering my opinion. I want to take this time to thank each and every one of you. Always feel free to contact me and drop me a note. I will do my best to respond to your emails in a timely manner. Thank you again, Tom Johnson
