Week 8 Food Storage Challenge

50 pounds wheat or flour / garden seeds

50 pounds of wheat or flour, If you store wheat be sure to have a grinder. Would really be bad to have to do it the really old fashion way with a rock lol.

Garden seeds, now is the tame to start getting seeds to plant, when you order or buy get a few extra you can keep them in storage. Keep in  a cool place, or in the freezer. Try to get some non hybrid then you can have seeds from now on, just be sure to save some each year.

Add some more to your water.

Put a little more in your money stash.

Have you be able to come up with some alternative heat sources? If you are in a smaller space you might try the tea candle and clay pot heater. I haven’t tried one yet so don’t know how well they work ,but some people are saying they work pretty good. You can find the instructions on the Internet.

How is that cooking from scratch? Remember the more you cook from scratch the more money you will be able to save.

And always remember anytime you find a good sale on something you use try to buy as much extra as you can. This way you are not paying full price for the things you need.


  1. Good advice... and adding some bit by bit is helpful and easier on the budget than getting a whole LOT at once. :) We are getting close to storm season here in the states, so it is good to be prepared.

    1. It is so much easier to get it little by little especially with the price of things now. And like you said it is so good to be prepared it does give some peace of mind.
      Have a great day,

    2. Just found your site ... great information in your food storage challenge! I just finished writing a series titled 'This is Why!' that ties in with your series.
