    Okay, so we all know that it is a good idea to prep and store items that may (or may not) be necessary in the future. This morning, I was cleaning out the garage (which should be called a storage area and not a garage) and I discovered that my tent had been chewed through by mice or rats (which...

    So I was a bit curious when it comes to the life of chocolate bars and junk food. Here was my plan; Take a five gallon bucket and fill it with Hershey’s bars, Mounds, Snickers, Truffles, hard candies like lemon drops and mints.

    I have started to stock food stores in the old wine cellar at my home which currently remains empty, but is shut off from the rest of the basement. I figure that this is a good place because it's a multi-family home and I rent the rest of the house out. I have also decided to stock some food...

    So guys what would you say makes up a good food list? Do you guys create a list or just pick up what you find on sale or double buy what you normally do? I would think a list would help you remember to cover major areas like protein or baking goods. Plus help to make sure you didn't miss...

    Well after untold hours of work the bulk food purchasing planner Excel spreadsheet is ready to be shared with my fellow forum members. I owe a BIG thanks to ZigMund for adding some protection for the spreadsheet and a few lines of code where I needed them. This will make it a LOT more user...
