Week 7 Food Storage Challenge

5 Pounds Shortening, oils, or lard / Canned meat.
Shortening, lard, or oils. Shortening will last longer then oils if kept in a cool place. I keep lard and just rotate it, same as shortening if keep in a cool, place it will keep longer. I also have some tallow and lard canned which helps to keep it longer. Wal-Mart  has 8 LBS lard for 9.78, 2 LBS 10 OZ shortening for 3.98, and 1 gallon Vegetable oil for 5.96, Get what you use so you will be able to rotate.
Canned meat, You can can your own or buy store bought. If you can catch a good sale on chicken, ground beef, stew meat or roast can your own it is super easy to can meat. If you don't can, then just buy store bought tuna, chicken, spam, corned beef, or even freeze dried. If you watch for sales you can pick up tuna for 50 cents. Wal-Mart has tuna for 78 cents a can and 12 oz spam for 2.64, I forgot to check the price of canned chicken but I don't think it is to bad. 
How is the garden planning coming along? Are you expanding or trying to grow some new things this year?
Have you made a order for your seeds yet, or got your seeds found and maybe even getting them started.
Add to your water.
Put a little more into your money stash.
Have a great week.


  1. Yes, I've sat down and made a list, and placed an order of all the seeds I need to replenish my stash. Plans have been made on how many raised bed we will be using this season.

    We've been storing more water, and saving money. Were hoping to eventually pay off our debt totally.

    1. Sandy,
      We to are trying to get debt paid off, it seems like even a small amount is hard to get paid down.
      Have a great day.
