To keep a food storage going you have to add to it more than you use it. I buy something each week , sometimes just a can , like , Mountain House #10 Can Beef Stroganoff with Noodles (10 -1 cup servings). Or a few cans of peanut butter. It really doesn’t matter what it is that you buy – as long as your adding to the food storage!! When you need it – it will be there!!
I have been adding to mine weekly. Some weeks I add more than others. Depends on other bills and such. You don’t want to go homeless or not pay your bills to have a food storage. That would be no good.
