Week 21 Food Storage Challenge

50 Pound Wheat or Flour / Toilet Tissue
50 Pounds of wheat or flour.

I don't remember the exact price of flour at Wal-Mart, but I know it was right around 9.00 for 25 pounds. So a little under 20 dollars for 50 pounds.

50 pounds of flour or wheat, if you have a grinder you can get wheat, if not get flour. White flour will last longer then wheat flour in storage. If you live in a place that freezes during the winter get your flour now and you can store it out in a shed or somewhere where it will freeze. Just pour in a bucket, add a couple pieces of spearmint gum, and put the lid on.  If it freezes real good for at least a few days, it will last a very long time ( I opened some flour a few months ago from 08 and it was still good). If you don't live where it freezes you will need to put it in some Mylar bags with oxygen absorbers.  If using Mylar bags you still need to put them in buckets, this will keep varmints from trying to chew through.

Toilet Tissue This is one of those things that you can never have to much of haha. But the one bad thing about it is it is hard to store as it takes a lot of room and if stored in an out building the mice may decide it makes for great housing material. An alterative is the family cloth I have a post on it  HERE now this is defiantly not for everybody but is is something to consider having on hand.
How has the cooking from scratch been coming along?
Have you found any alternative lighting ideas? 

Don't forget to add to your water and your money stash.

Have a great week.
