This marks the end of our first year. If you have been following our purchase plan, then, congratulations! You now have a year’s worth of stored food! If not, this month is a great time to start. We will just keep repeating the lists, updating prices for the best deals as we go.

 

Store names provided when I thought they might be helpful in keeping costs down.  If you are having a hard time finding items for the price listed, leave a comment by clicking on the link at the top of the left sidebar and I will give you my pricing info. Pricing is subject to change…as anyone shopping these days can testify!
