Think of it as the savings account you can eat!
- Make a list of foods you eat on a regular basis, and determine how much you would go through in three months.
- Gradually purchase these foods in bulk as they go on sale (see below for more details).
- Use and rotate these foods in all your daily cooking.
- Constantly replenish the stocks of these foods as they go on sale again.
- Don’t forget to include non-food items in this step as well. Get a 3 month supply of NECESSITIES such as diapers, medications, toilet paper, toiletries, etc. Remember, only the essentials for now.
- Benefits include: saving money by buying foods on sale and having foods you normally eat in times of economic or any other type of hardship.
