Hi, everyone. Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Just had some much needed mild storms here in the Midwest. Helped out our little garden greatly! Wanted to hear your thoughts and executions re: food prep. Pls do share as I value your ideas! I have been a prepper for about 5 years, however, have never dipped my toe in to the freeze dried/#10 can arena. It makes sense to me, having the extra long term storage capability, and ease of preparing.....but, I'm also weighing that against the financial aspect of it all. Currently, I'm torn....seeing it as insurance and a gamble all at the same time. I can't tell you how many times I've abandoned my cart at costco w/their kit and a few other dealers. Done lots and lots of research and have also discovered that the #10 cans are getting harder and harder to come by. I just haven't been able to pull that trigger, but am still stocking up on pantry items. I am and will always be a researcher (aka "the techie" by sweet hubby) and want to make sure I'm going into decision mode fully prepared (see, a true blooded prepper instinctively!). That's where you all, the experts come in
My husband is fully on board and has come full circle enough on this aspect as well and is the one encouraging me to pull the trigger on the emergency 25+ year food schtuff's.
Please tell me your heart and thoughts on the matter, if you would....it would be so helpful.
Carry on Comrades, keep alert and keep preparing friends.
