I've been a prepper for a while now and I'm just curious what foods you're stocking up on and how you store them.

I live in the country and have a large garden. I purchase most of my canned goods by the case. The same with pasta, rice, beans etc.

If there is a financial catastrophe what will be in short supply?

How do you store it?

How do you not appear obvious when you stock up?

I'm interested in your answers.

I have a bunch of canned ravioli and spaghetti, along with canned corn and green beans and tuna and some black beans..I have them in my kitchen cabinet and when in use i rotate the stock. I hear the ravioli and spaghetti sauce is good for you,except for the salt.

Food? Alcohol, canned foods especially canned meats, noodles (think ramen here), rice, pasta, flour and grains, and dried beans. Seasoning items, especially salt, would be a great commodity. A hefty amount of oil and cooking fats (lard and vegetable shortening) will be needed, too.

Here's the kicker. You will also need plenty charcoal and propane to cook these items. Don't forget about lighter fluid and matches.

number 10 cans from mountain house

good for 25 years with the right storage temp

and never forget doesnt matter what you store or how you store if you dont take into consideration

of the amibent temperatures.

the right temp even canned food from the grocery store will last a couple of years

Vermin traps, honey,syrup, powdered eggs, hemp protein shake powder,flour,sugar,beef jerky,salami etc, corned beef and lots and lots of salt as its very cheap and can help to keep meat and fish from going off for longer.

I hadn't thought about salt. I have one of the quart size containers but perhaps I should get more.

I think that liquor would be useful as a barter tool. I do have a fair supply of wine because I make it and I age if for a couple of years. But that's for my personal consumption.

I am fortunate enough to have a few boxes of MRE's in the garage. I am also going to stock up on beans, ramen noodles, and oats. I think it's going to be hard to find good water to mix with these things though. Water is sure to run out fast.

www.efoodsdirect.com has awesom meals that just require water. you could also stock up on MREs but you take the chance of being reported by the salespeople to the government if you order too much.

yeah ive started the oh s**t pantry lol....ive got about 50 gallons of water, 200 can's of soup and veggies, I came home the other day with 2 vaccum sealed 50lb bags of rice my fiance' just about died
it was quite comical. ive got like i think maybe 75 cans of tuna. we have a habit of writing the exp. date on the top of the can and rotating it....its how ive manage to not worry so much about feeding my family not to mention I am one of those exetremely psycho coupon clippers i pay next to nothing for everything. last week i bout 500.00 for groceries one months for $8.36 i have to. I don't want to apply for food stamps because there are people worse off then me that need them.

Wheat , barley , oil , wine . This is what the 'voice' in Revelation recommends . Makes pure sense to me .

If the container bears some use , the contents are probably worth having .

Milk (dried) and honey are luxury goods , but of known worth , especially honey , never goes off . I hate living without milk though.

Seeds , of any description which are also of edible value, these are targets . Flax , full of good stuff . Other types sunflower , alfalfa , radish , all easily sprouted but crucially resown when there is opportunity .

You can just about live on food state vitamins , a box of them and you will be laughing .
got to be 'food state' though , thats not a brand.

And , unleavened bread , has its place . Its flat , easily packed and stays fresh a long time if sealed. I go for tortilla or chapati . with mayonaise and salad , they go with anything.

Salami / dried meats / chorizo sausage / always good , travelers food needs no fridge .

Bar having a cow I dont know what to do about cheese. I really like it , but the whole thing is a bit of an industrial process . I would miss cheese and fresh milk in a shtf scenario
