So, we spend too much money on food. I have cut expenses, by cutting out most organic food, as we don't live near a Whole Foods or Costco-just our little ole co-op. For health reasons, I really should be eating only organic animal products.
We do not have a deep freeze, though I want one! I have been looking at sales and craigslist, but am leary about buying a used freezer due to energy usage.
I hate to cook. Dh is a much better cook, but currently, I am the one with more time to do it. Dh isn't fond of meal planning,and thinks stockpiling is only for people in rural areas(generally-if I tried to engage him more, I'm sure he would give me a more educated opinion).
I want to tackle a lot....what would you do...how would you start?
As for starting to stockpile, if something is on sale and you use it, buy two (or four, or whatever). You might as well. You don't have to call it your stockpile or food storage or zombie defense strategy , just call it food. Like I sort of hinted in the last paragraph, people get hung up on labels because labels come with baggage. So don't use labels.
I always think of it as smart shopping. Most EVERYTHING I buy is on sale and hopefully combined with a coupon. So when a product I use is on sale I get out my coupons and load up. That way I always have a supply of the item and I never have to pay full price. I have saved tons of $$ that way and always have a nice full pantry and deep freezer. Although I do like the idea of calling it my zombie defense strategy. It has a nice ring to it.
