    I only have X amount of time and money. In the big picture, I feel those resources would be better served by working on renewable food sources than buying canned foods. 25 years ago up until recently my main food prep was canned and dried foods. A can rotation system was put in, but was...

    Growing up I had the fortune of having two former chefs as parents. While being raised I never saw store-bought bread in the house or even store-bought pasta sauce. Just about everything was made from scratch and not only was it healthy and monetarily efficient it was also quite delicious. Years...

    This has been beat to death but oh well. I was researching what foods were best for energy, as my energy level is somewhat relaxed. According to what I read, salmon is the best meat for energy. Went to Walmart, and the Great Value brand was sold out. Somebody else knows this too. Went to Dollar...

    Does anyone have any suggestions on the most cost effective way (per ounce/pound) to buy canned goods in bulk. I'd like to spend up to $500 per month on canned goods and am thinking I could do better if one month I just bought TUNA...the next month CORN...and so forth...rather than taking that...

    Hello, First post, but a long-time reader of the forums. I received my Starter Kit from the LDS Online Store yesterday. One of the cans was severely dented and two had minor dents. I am not concerned with the minor dents, but I have little confidence in long-term storage of the severely dented...

    Trying to just map out and figure how much we need to ultimately get to a year's supply of food is challenging! From where to put it all to what would we eat over and over is a lot to think about. As far as eating canned food over and over (that we currently eat frequently today), I can only...

    So my husband and I continue to begin to prepare for the worst, EMP or Nuke Attack. We are so use to eating homecooked meals, taking turns, most nights. We are big meat fans. After visiting Wal-Mart, it appears if we want any meat, it will come from a can and mostly likely be Chicken or Tuna...

    Title says it all really. I live opposite a 24h hypermarket. I don't have much money (maybe, say, £20 to spend.. that's about $33). I don't have any storage facilities, pots or containers. So if you guys were in my situation.. what would you buy with that money? (only long shelf-life foods...
