    After the blizzard last week, I realized we weren't very well prepared for emergencies and I am trying to get some supplies incase of another emergency. My husband is in the army and he is trying to help me learn what we need. I also enrolled myself in a CPR class!

    Hello and Welcome

    Flowerrosy, with just beginning why don't you try figuring out what you normally eat over a ten day time-frame by doing menues and then buying double for those meals. that would give you 10 extra meals quickly, then you could focus on the other long term storage issue and necessities. It's just a thought. Good luck.

    Hello from another Newbie!

    That is pretty much how I started my preps. I made a 2 week menu of the cheapest meals that I can make and bought double.

    Thank you for the tips! I haven't started storing food yet. I have purchased a lot of survival items that I might need. Food is next on the list. :)

    Welcome, flowerrosy!

    May I suggest buying a few of those 4 or 5 gallon water-cooler refills? That would cover you for water for awhile, and water is something a lot of people forget when they are preparing for disasters...
