Food Storage

black-beans

In the past, my family would acquire a year and a half of food storage and then we would not think about it for a while.  Every time  I needed to see how much food we had, it was like I had to start over on figuring out how much we had and what we needed, and if we had enough for my growing family.

I finally made a chart where I tallied up what we had, and filled in the gaps with what we needed by hitting case lot sales.  Then I placed a chart on the door to our food storage room which was marked every time we used something from that room.  If we used a can of black beans, we would make a hash mark by that item on the list.  Now I take the list with me to the store every six months and stock up on what we use the most of instead of randomly guessing what we might need.
