How to Shop for a Food Storage Pantry

(YouTube link) (Part 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)

By creating 7 meal plans per week, then multiplying it by how often you will eat it in a month, then in a 6-month period, you will know how much to buy. You will need to create a shopping list. If you are buying for a 6-month pantry, it helps you determine your goal.

She also buys wheat berries, since they have a 30-year shelf life. This would mean that you would have to have a wheat grinder.

She talks about the importance of pressure canning meat, solar oven cooking, and vacuum sealing.
