When we are struck by disasters, the attention is usually on the most basic things that we need like water and food. One can survive for days without any food, but then that is something that most people would not like to go through. It is much better to do your things when you are satisfied and well nourished. It is good to prepare for disasters and to even store food for such an eventuality. This can be rather overwhelming and you need to consider many things like what to store, how to keep the food fresh, how much to store, and what is needed to create that extra stash. This is something that any preppers would ask themselves and the answers can be really fulfilling if done in the appropriate manner.
How much should be stored?
Every person within the household should have enough food and water that can last for a minimum of three days. More is always better and you can get reserves that can last for even two weeks.
There is a rule that has to be followed by preppers. That is, always store what you usually use and then use what you store. This is because many of the foods that we know actually have a shelf life that is limited regardless of how well preserved they may be. Do not keep food locked away because it will not last as long as you may imagine. If you store too long, the food will go bad and you will only waste it.
