    Hello all, I'm sorry if this topic has been posted before - admittedly I did not dig through the threads much. :taped: I have a question regarding the storage of can goods. Today, I purchased several tins of smoked herring. I noticed when I got home that the tins were noticeably cold/cool to...

    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...

    I came across this pantry hack to turn a magazine holder into an organizer for your canned goods. Seems like a pretty nifty idea. Sure could open up a lot of space in my current pantry set up.

    Where the best place to buy bulk? Biggest thing being whole grains 2nd would be can good? 3rd water storage? I am new at this and had my first garden this year produce 100+quarts and now 4 times that size for next season. Thanks any input helps just starting.

    Because of the horrible dought this year and Hurricane Irene, those areas that grow our pumpkins each year have had whole fields that are not able to be harvested or the pumpkins are ruined. Because of this, if you like Pumpkin Pies (and really... who doesn't?) you may want to start stocking up...

    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...

    SPAM gets a lot of praise as a great survival prep food, and deservedly so. We bought some canned salmon yesterday that had a "best by" date of Sep 2016 on it. I didn't realize it would keep that long! I like salmon almost as good as SPAM myself. But for those that don't like SPAM, salmon may...

    I gotta tell ya, I have been prepping for a looooong time. I rotate stock, eat what I buy, buy what I eat, etc. I am really sick of canned food. I have eaten more dried beans, rice, dehydrated veggies, and jar (home canned0 goods than anyone I know. I am pretty sure my family feels the same...

    Went out to dinner with my mom tonight since we haven't had a chance to quite a while. One of the first things she said was that she had something for me. I wasn't really expecting anything and was quite surprised by the 2 cans she handed me. 24oz. of Canned Beef. These were given to her...

    Has anyone else noticed the supermarkets have been running very thin on a wide range of products and are completely out of some things? I started noticing it a few weeks ago, little things would be out of stock like Organic Milk or Pepsi and I figured it was just supply disruptions or a blow...
