- 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! :)
