- 25 lbs flour
- 25 lbs cornmeal
- 25 lbs sugar
- 25 lbs rice
- 25 lbs dry beans
- 5 boxes dry milk
- 5 boxes tea, coffee, kool aid, etc.
- 5 boxes pasta
- Powdered eggs if no chickens
- Medications for everyone in the family. Prescriptions can now be bought in 3 month supplies at Walmart and Sears.
All of these items need to be placed in dry places. Containers with a seal is the best. If sealed properly they can last for years, I am told. Paint Buckets from Walmart or other Paint Stores a good. Apple Juice containers from the store are great containers for Water Storage. Most of these items can be purchased inexpensively from Warehouse stores!
Don't forget other items like Diapers, Shampoo, Soaps, Wipes. If you need help calculating what your needs will be for your family go to this Food Storage Calculator!
I found this list here! A great website put together to help in the endeavor of preparation.
Please let me know if you have any other ideas for proper preparation! :)

"When the people fear the government, there is tyranny;
When the government fears the people, there is liberty."
I missed this first time around. Brian Lancaster at Jumping in Pools reported on Obama’s college thesis, written when he was at Columbia. The paper was called “Aristocracy Reborn,” and in the first ten pages (which were all that reporter Joe Klein–who wrote about it for Time–was permitted to see), the young Obama wrote:
“… the Constitution allows for many things, but what it does not allow is the most revealing. The so-called Founders did not allow for economic freedom. While political freedom is supposedly a cornerstone of the document, the distribution of wealth is not even mentioned. While many believed that the new Constitution gave them liberty, it instead fitted them with the shackles of hypocrisy.”

A little about me...
It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)
In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.
I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.
There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.
So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
