Off The Shelf Food Storage Per Week For One Year

Here is my per week list for off the shelf shopping there are only a few weeks you would have to shop on line, this is with the canned chees and butter and with the wheat. But some of you may have one or both in your area and not have to go on line for them. At the end of this year long list you should have a real good amount of food but I don't think it would be a full year of food for a person but would be real close.
The cost of each week will be up and down if you can't afford to do as much then cut back and if you can afford more then buy more, because the more you have the better off you will be. I would shop around and look for the best price on each item and only buy that item at a good price. I know that at a few stores near me they have bulk foods and from time to time they go on sale so that is a great time to stock up. Most weeks are $25-$50 but a few weeks are more and a few are a lot more. And most items have a real good shelf life but some are not so good so remember that as you buy. I made this list for a few friends that don't want to do the on line thing and just want to shop off the shelf at there store near them. With that in mind here is my list.

And look into your local LDS Cannery I'm not a member of the LDS Church but got to go to the cannery with a friend that is a member and she said you don't have to go the a LDS church to go the the cannery and they have the pre-canned items that are still at a great price so look into it.
Now go and get to prepping!!!!! And prep like crazy!!!!!!


  1. thx! I'm printing this off and sharing it with family. This is very doable!

  2. Awesome. Printing too. See a few things I forgot. Thanks.

  3. A great list, but do they know how yo utilize the basic ingredients that you have included? Without recipes or the knowledge of how to cook and bake from scratch, they will sit and stare at those items while they slowly starve.
