    It looks better than another year-supply that someone posted a little while back. I'm curious how big it is.

    I'm still not convinced that in an emergency situation a lot of it won't go to waste. Once you open a can with 40-50 servings of eggs or TVP, can you eat it before it goes bad? What if there's no electricity to store things properly?
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    I'm waiting for Soylent Green. I think it will be much cheaper.

    Look just because you all don't want to know whats going on in the world and live in ignorant bliss, don't post sarcastic little snipes in threads that are aimed at those of us who DO prepare. I think it's ignorant to the max. If you have no interest in the subject then keep you opinions to yourself. I especially don't like the little dig about zombie apocolypse especially that it's coming from the owner of this site.I'm sure it has to do with the stupid CDC thing but still.


    ON TOPIC

    I think thats a good price. Emergency Essentials 1 year for 1 person is over that price, but they also go by calories. You can go 1600 - 2000 daily calories with their different packages. I've never checked Auagson Farms calorie count in this package.

    I buy the seperate ingredients from different companies ( although AF has a better shipping time right now). I combine those I buy with the stuff I grow and can or dehydrate to make our meals


    Checked the link. It says 84 cans but theres no carlorie count.

    Everything is freeze dried or dehydrated so I don't see a problem keeping it from spoiling. Wheat doesn't go bad. It sits in silos for months at a time. Sugar just needs to stay dry. Same with everything else. Keep the lid on it and keep it dry.
    And anyone with any sense knows not to leave stuff out in the sun and heat and weather. I should hope.

    This FOOL buys parts of it. I also know other FOOLS who buy parts of it too.

    Even your own government buys it so yes, FOOLS do buy it!

    I think that's a good price for a 1 year supply for 1 person. I'd just have to get creative in ways to incorporate it into our menus so it wouldn't go to waste

    The dry stuff, sure. But how long does an open 2 gallon can of raw eggs last during an emergency when you are without power? I just can't see some of the wet/moist products in that list being safe to eat after about 2 days open without refrigeration.

    I won't argue that it's good to prepare and have good stock of food for an emergency -- I have seen hurricane and tornado devastation first hand-- I just question the sensibility of buying items that can't be kept at safe temperature once opened. You just can't depend on refrigeration to be there.

    In case of a zombie apocalypse, I'm hitting up every canned good store in a 50 mile radius instead. I imagine that by then, it'll be free since the grocery store clerk will be missing an arm and drooling.

    Someone told me I might have came off wrong with my comment. Meaning they were implying I was making fun of folks that prepare for catastrophe.

    I posted the link just to be helpful and show what was was available at Costco for preparing in case of a major event that could change things on earth. (Meteorite, thermonuclear bomb, EMP, earthquake, insert your favorite doomsday scenario here)

    Thefrug, don't get your knickers in a Knot. It's good to have a sense of humor from time to time. You should try it. Everyone prepares and stocks up for different reasons, including me.

    I would probably buy it if I missed the rapture though.

    I actually thought the price was pretty good. But since I need to rotate the food out I am trying to buy family favorites for the stockpile and keep using the older ones. I also look at growing and stockpiling items.
