A good place to shop

We learned about this store when we were in the Honeyville store in Brigham City. It's a huge store with probably anything you'd want to store including containers of all types. The pricelist is in Adobe Reader and is 14 pages long. I hope Honeyville succeeds here as they're our only option for most of these items. I have had to pick up things in SLC or Brigham City in the past, so we're grateful for this store. Feel free to share the Price list with others in your ward - especially your food storage specialists
Or canning specialists if they aren't aware of this store.
They have all kinds of grains, flours, baking supplies (including cupcake cups 500 for $4.19 - much cheaper than supermarkets. You might want to browse through the pricelist. They have lots of things in bulk and also In cans. They also have a gluten free section on bottom of p 11 and top of p 12. I don't know how those prices compare to other gluten free products since I > don't buy those.

Storing dry goods in PETE plastic containers

Bobbi Cook has a need method she is trying and wanted to share. Ask her if you have questions.
Did you know that you can store dry goods in PETE plastic containers? I guess the church is doing this in third world countries where they need to store food, but don't have canneries. Here's a link that tells you how The only other thing that I heard to do that this person didn't is to use packaging tape around the lid of the container.

November Food Storage Challenge

I hope everyone was able to find a good deal on their November food storage items. This month I was wondering if anyone might have a suggestion for the item to purchase. Maybe there is something that you really need and this would help you to stock up on it. Let me know and I will make a decision what the item will be by Sunday.
