I am sure you have seen the big food storage buckets in your local grocery store. Around here they usually appear in fall and during Thanksgiving and Christmas. I’ve always wondered why people stock and store food. I knew that it has something to do with the economy, and that our world is really in a crisis. We have terrorists killing people, and some unfriendly countries obtaining nuclear weapons. Who know what the future might hold for our children.
In February, there were reports that Venezuela’s economy collapsed and people ran out of food. An economic collapse happens gradually but when it happens there are long lines and hungry people. The government of Venezuela rationed food based on the size of a family in order to prevent hoarding. But then long lines formed for basic necessities such as soap and diapers. Socialist policies such as the ones put in place by Venezuela lead to a collapse in the economy and a shortage of food.
The liberal and progressive leaders in the United States are moving further and further to the left. Some of them are trying to push for similar policies here that caused the collapse in Venezuela. If you are terrified that this may happen here, you should look into food storage and learn how to do it properly.
Food Storage Guide
Recently, I came across the book, “Store This, Not That!: The Quick and Easy Food Storage Guide“, by Crystal Godfrey and Debbie Kent. If you are as unfamiliar about food storage as I am, this is the book to get to begin storing food for your family. It is the best food storage guide available.
“Let’s face it, food storage can be confusing, frustrating, and downright daunting,” they write in the introduction.
“If you’ve ever felt confused about what you should actually be buying and storing, you’re not alone – and we’re here to help!”
“Somewhere, somehow, over the last few years, something happened to the economy and the world. We all know it. We’ve felt the effects of it, and let’s be honest, it’s got everyone pretty concerned.”
“Couple that with a struggling economy and with rising food and gas prices and you have a real problem. The point of these facts and figures is not to depress or scare you. It’s to reassure you that if you don’t have all the food storage you want or need, that this is a cause worth fighting, scrimping, sacrificing and saving for. It’s to reassure you that you have made the right choice to be prepared! In fact, we think you and your family deserve it! You deserve the peace preparedness brings, the comfort of knowing you have food for your family, and the tools you’ll need to make a preemptive strike on rising food prices. It’s never too late to begin or finish what you have started – and this is where we come in.”
That is one compelling argument. It has me sold. You never know, we may become the next Venezuela, especially if we elect the wrong person for President. We need to be prepared.
“Store This, Not That!: The Quick and Easy Food Storage Guide” is a fascinating book and they go into detail on exactly how to store food and save money in the process. They explain how to start a rainy day fund that you can eat, how to cash in on the big sales at your grocery store, planning your meals to save money (one of my favorite things to do), what foods you can store long-term and which ones you can make from scratch to store later, and a breakdown of all the different food groups and how to store each of them. They have even included some awesome recipes at the end of the book.
You can purchase “Store This, Not That!: The Quick and Easy Food Storage Guide” on Amazon.com or anywhere books are sold.
