Although I started this blog because my friend, Alisa, encouraged me to do so, I had another motivating factor. I wanted some accountability. Like most people, I can talk a good game about what I am “going” to do. But sometimes, maybe a lot of times, I allow time to get away from me, and I don’t do as much as I would like to do. To keep me moving along a self-reliant path, I’m going to report to you at the start of each month and tell you what I did to build my food storage during the previous month.
Some months will be better than others. I’m telling you that right now, but my goal is to keep going and doing and building. If I do that, I will eventually get to where I want to be. I hope, also, that by sharing my experiences, it will help you think about how you can prepare and then act! Thought without action will not help you or me very much if we find ourselves in an emergency situation.
Without further ado, here’s a summary of my efforts to build my food storage in March. Remember! All of this came from my regular grocery budget (click here to see how I do it). I did not use money from any other budget category.
