Stockpile or die!



Bird flu, food shortages, recession, the falling dollar, marshal law, are just a few of the reasons why we should all have our own stockpile of food. Becoming self sustained is the only to make sure you have control over your own resources.

There has been food riots all over the world, and massive water shortages as well, luckily here in the US this has not happened yet, although it seems like it might. This is why I feel it is in the best interest of everyone to have a stockpile of food.

Why don't we already stockpile?

It seems odd that we all do not stockpile already, but here are the reasons why:

Cost (its expensive to keep a stockpile)
Space (stockpiles take a lot of room)
Facing the Fear (you have except the reality of the dangers)
Laziness (it takes work to build a stockpile)

How much food do I need? What type of food should I get?

The best site I have found for stockpile tips is on the bird flu manual. It gives you the most useful information on building your own effective stockpile.

Meanwhile, some simple tips include:

Buy food in bulk
Buy food that does not need to be refrigerated

(canned good, jerky, dried fruits, nuts, rice & beans)
Buy extra each time at the store
(this is the easiest way to slowly build a stockpile, plus allows you for the best ability to rotate your stockpile)
Take advantage of bulk sales
(dont buy canned corn until it is being sold 10 cans for 5 dollars, or whatever is the best possible deal at your store)
Buy nutritious food
(dont eat junk food anyways, but even moreso do not stockpile foods that are not good for you)
Buy food you like
(if you buy food you will never eat unless the world is coming to an end, then it has good odds of going to waste, buy things you will enjoy eating.)
Store foods in common places
(you dont need a pantry or a basement to store foods, you can use a closet, the top of the fridge, under beds & couches, unused shelf space, etc. Be creative and find places to put this food, it may save your life)
Food is a good investment
(you can take out a loan to build your stockpile, especially if you buy foods you would eat anyways. This will probably save you money in the long run, by eating discounted bulk foods from your stockpile periodically, then buying fast food or other expensive meals simply because they are convenient.)


Believe the Hype, or Don't

While I honestly believe and hope that it will not come to a crisis in America that we will need to resort to using our stockpile, there is still a very big chance that this is a very big possilitiy....and why give away your control. Being ready for anything, is the best way to perpare to survive. If life is good, and there is no crisis, then you simply have a lot of food on hand, and peace of mind.

Make sure to check out Stockpile tips in preparing your own foodstuffs and keep on eye on our Global Disaster Watch

Once you are prepared for the worst than you can start thinking like an immortalist

Dude! I am so glad I'm not the only paranoid person who squirrels stuff away JUST IN CASE.

My husband and I have our car trunk packed with our camping/emergency supplies for JUST IN CASE, since we live around America's biggest naval complex. And within DC's danger zone.

EEK!

I have a stockpile too, including water. Remember to rotate ...

I would say it was odd, but in reality I believe all things happen for a reason (even if we don't yet see why). Just yesterday I was thinking of this very thing, came into Entrecard, saw your request, visited here only to find your post about my thoughts. Must be a "sign" and while we (at my house) did come and go with keeping a stockpile of sorts, we never really got down to the business of really being prepared. Guess it's time. And it's not really anything but, as you state, an investment. Thanks for the reminder!

I can tell you from first-hand experience in many locations around the world, the stockpile idea is a very good first step in disaster preparedness. There is also much - besides food - that you consider having on hand to be fully prepared. However, food and water are the big first two.

Another couple quick thoughts:
Copies of any medication prescription scripts (if you have to run away fro a disaster, having these can save your life).
Enough medications to keep you going for a month.
A quick evac bag with all the truly important essentials if you do need to evac quickly.

And about 150 other ideas. I won't bore you with all of it here.

You are on the mark with what you are preaching. Keep it up.

I disagree with only stockpiling food that is good for you. Some junk foods like oil and sugar are compact, inexpensive per calorie and have long shelf lives. When a crisis hits you will be able to trade these for perishable healthy foods.
