Some weeks you will have leftover change. Instead of spending it, put aside the change each week to be used for the weeks you may need more than $10-$15 (like for wheat, milk, etc). Also be sure to lookout for sales. This way you can jump ahead and cross items off the list where there are great bargains. And use coupons to get good deals and outlet stores.

After you have completed this list, you will end up with:
•500 lbs of wheat.
•180 lbs of sugar.
•40 lbs of powdered milk.
•12 lbs of salt.
•10 lbs of honey.
•5 lbs of peanut butter.
•45 cans of tomato soup.
•15 cans of cream of mushroom soup.
•15 cans of cream of chicken soup.
•24 cans of tuna.
•21 boxes of macaroni & cheese.
•500 aspirin.
•1000 multi-vitamins.
•6 lbs of yeast.
•6 lbs of shortening.
•12 lbs of macaroni.
I calculated that this amount of food has around 1,249,329 calories which based on a 2000 calorie a day diet will provide enough food for two people for 312 days! That’s almost one whole year for two people on $5 a week! Even if the price was double that, at $10-$15 a week you’re only paying around $40-$60/month in grocery bills. Try to beat that…


  1. Honey! I think it is a gimmick. People like it because it's not "sugar". It makes thenm feel more "informed" or "elite" to say honey and makes then feel pedestrian to say "sugar". I am aware that honey was part of the original LDS four but I never use honey. Sugar yes honey no.

    Wheat! Love the idea. It can store for 20 years or 100 years. But does it belong in the same list as canned soup which can store for a few years? Why not flour? Oddly, flour costs less then wheat and it is obviously easier to use. I have wheat, I will probably have it all when I die and give it to my kids who will have it until they die. My flour and rice I use every day.

    Rice! where's the rice? Rice is so practical. I can take a cup of rice and make a meal for 3 or 4 people ready in half an hour. Lets see you do that with wheat. Don't get me wrong, I think wheat makes sense for "long term storage" but I'm hoping I never need to use it. Rice on the other hand makes sense for everyday, for a years storage and for long term storage. And it's cheap.

    Milk! Love it. I drink milk the kids should drink milk but it isn't cheap. I have some stored but it is low on my list of things to add to my storage. It's too expensive.

    Beans! Where's the beans? I love beans. The protein in beans complements the protein in grains. Gotta have beans/lentils.

    Corn! I admit I don't use cornmeal everyday but cornmeal is good eats. Ancient civilizations lived on corn. Corn and beans provide 90% of your required nutrients.

    I hope this sounds more like ideas or suggestions then it does like criticism. I think what you have laid out is good especially for people who have not yet done anything to prepare. Just offerring an opinion.

  2. It is much more manageable when food storage is broken down into smaller increments. It is very overwhelming to try and imagine that you have to go out and but these monstrous quantities and just where would you keep them. This helps make it doable.
