Although grocery store preps may not have as long as shelf life as tastier versions of military MRE style meals do, supplementing your food stores with such low-cost items is a great way to bolster food stores and save money at the same time. Keeping a food preparedness inventory with “best if used by” dates listed will ensure that you rotate your supply and do not lose money by wasting food.
Growing your own shelf stable food is always the most inexpensive and healthy option. But, when you cannot grow or raise all the food you need, long-term food items must be purchased as a part of the family’s overall preparedness plan. A multitude of long-term food storage companies now exist, and prices and taste vary greatly among the shelf stable producers.
