Week 2 Food Storage Challenge

50 pounds Wheat or flour/ Canned milk

Wheat will store longer then flour will, but if you don't use wheat or don't have a grinder there is no point in storing wheat. If you live in a cold climate you can store the wheat or flour in buckets out in a shed where they will stay frozen all winter this will kill all the little critters that are in them. I also like to add some spearmint gum with the flour ( someone told me years ago that that will help keep out the bugs). If you live in a warmer climate you will need to store in airtight containers and use oxygen absorbers in them to kill all the critters. I like to buy my flour and wheat in the fall so that it will sit in the cold all winter long. I have flour from 08 that is still good.

Canned milk you can buy this or can your own or a little of both, go Here to see how to can your own milk.

Add a little more to your money stash.

Keep putting up water you can't have to much water.

How is the sewing coming along? And are you finding some alternatives to lighting?

Have a great week and remember if you see something on sale that you use a lot of try to pick up some extra for your storage and to use.

  1. I was able to put some money back, pick up some candles and sew a few older items to give them more life.
