5 Fundamental Rules For Storing Food

5 Fundamental Rules For Storing Food
By Reginald Kaigler (DEMCAD)

See, not only is it important to store food, but it is also important to build relationships. Everyone should store non-perishable food goods such as can goods and dried foods. The latter is becoming very expensive (as of 2011). Hell, food in general is rising in cost. I recommend you follow the 5 fundamental rules for storing food.

1. Store What You Eat
If you don’t eat corn beef harsh, why store it. Stock up on foods that you want to eat, because if you don’t you will be miserable and your body may react negatively to the new foods. If chill makes you throw up, it’s better to find out before a disaster strikes.

2. Cycle Your Food
Eat some of your canned fruits and replace them when you go to the grocery store. Just because they can last for years, it doesn’t mean you should just let them sit around. This will keep your stock fresher and allow you to make adjustments.

3. Diversify
If the world ends as we know it and the power grid goes down, you don’t want to be suck eating the same thing for the next six months. Buy fruits, vegetables, soups, rice (white), beans, pasta, tuna, salmon, chicken, etc.

4. Build meals
The thing I like most about rice is that it can be used with other foods to build meals. Soups are also a good item to mix with beans and rice.

5. Place Foods in Different Locations
Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket.

  1. Example for your #5: Had my food in the basement when Hurricane Lee hit - some of the worst flooding in Central PA since 1972 (Hurricane Agnes). Luckily, no food was lost, but if I had 3 more inches in the basement, good bye first shelf.

    Thanks for the tips, Demcad.
