    Smile Pictures of my stockpile

    I'm going to try post some pictures of my food storage areas. My stockpile is not as much as I would like as we've had to use it because of no paychecks. Hopefully our disability will be accepted soon and I can build it back up.

    trying to find the right sizing

    The large pails are full of peas, different beans, rolled oats, oat groats, rice, barley, wheat kernels etc.

    The lower shelf has more pastas and chicken & beef soup base.

    You have a nice stockpile Tina. My DH happened to be passing through the room when I was looking and he commented on how nice it all looked.

    Looking good Tina. I'm impressed with all the canning you've got done.

    Wow, Tina I'm so impressed. It does look so nice and organized.

    I need to start stockpiling for this fall and winter. I haven't canned in several years so will have to rely on store sales.

    I was wondering if you would share what you think is the most important item/items that you stockpile.

    What a lovely stockpile, Tina! I hope you don't mind but I'm using your first photo as my wallpaper now.

    It's a real credit to you to have such a well organised stockpile with what looks like a good variety of items. I particularly love your canned goods. It's a great thing to be able to grow or buy when cheap and preserve that food for later.

    You get my squirrel award. stand in squirrel >

    Wow, that's very impressive. And SO organized!!! Definitely a model to live up to.

    Question: Do you ever take the rings off of your canning jars? And why or why not?

    Thanks everyone

    Mary - It's hard to pick just a few important items. Off the top of my head think I would pick rice, pasta, oats, stewed tomatoes or tomato sauce, dried beans, canned fruit and frozen veggies. Of course flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, oil, etc are top priority.

    Rhonda - I love my squirrel award.

    Twice now in the last few years we have had to live off my stockpile. I'm still working on improvements for my weak areas.

    I needed to stock more baking powder, soda, salt, cocoa and other seasonings. When you are living off the stockpile and not buying anything it is amazing how fast those basics are used up.

    I also needed to work on having more canning fruits and frozen veggies. One of the things I've done is to do more dehydrating. A simple thing like dehydrating frozen mixed veggies. They take up less room and I can buy a couple bags when I have a few extra dollars. Dry reduced green peppers, tomatoes, celery, onions, and carrots. Apple slices, bananas, pineapples etc. are also wonderful to snack.

    Right now I'm low on health and beauty products. I'm waiting for a sale and hopefully some money so I can build that up.

    dndylfe - No, I have never taken my rings off the canning jars and I can't give you a good reason why. I guess it's one of those "because that's how my mom did it" Sorry I don't have a good reason. I'll need to look into that.
