A Challenge for your Food Storage

Hello Sisters,

Food storage might not be on your high priority list, or you might be struggling with how and when you should purchase it. So to aid you in starting or adding to your food storage each month I am going to be challenging you to try and get at least 3 months (or as close as you can) worth of one specific food storage item. Here is your challenge.

-First decide how much you can spend out of your budget.
-Second I will help direct you with. This month you will work to increase an ingredient(s) that has to do with pasta. So you could buy noodles of plenty variety, you could buy top-o-ramon, hambuger helpers, macaroni and cheese. Or you could buy spaghetti sauce or stuff to make your own sauce. So decide what it is you want to purchase. If you don't have much to spend, pick only one thing. If your budget is a little larger and you think you can get 3 months worth of more than one thing go for it.
-Third Pray for help. Ask Heavenly Father to help you be able to increase your storage, maybe where to shop, or the right timing, or ask for a sale on a specific item. Ask him to have someone let you know of a sale, or help you find some coupons.
-Fourth Before the end of the month make your purchase.

Sisters I can't promise that you will get 3 months worth, but I know if you are trying and asking in faith for the Lord's help that you will see a definite increase in your storage and you will be blessed. So please accept this challenge and if you have suggestions for next month let me know. Also if you want to share what you bought and how much storage it gives your family that would be great.


  1. Mandi - this is great! I enjoyed reading your tips. After reading this, I realized I just need to do a little each paycheck instead of trying to wait till I have extra money to make big purchases (because that doesn't seem to happen:)

  2. Cool blog! Just found it with the last message board. Maybe you could come to the Nurserys and introduce what you (we) are (should be) doing. Wish I heard about the cereal earlier! : )
