Is it really Spring? I guess snow in April is spring in Utah. My garden starts are sitting in the window wishing to grow in the garden, so hopefully the weather will make up its mind soon.
The grocery deals this week are few, but stocking up on items when they are the lowest price allows you to take a "week off" when there aren't any deals to grab.
The following amounts are what a person or family would need for a year storage. I only show these so you understand what it will take for a family to live off of storage. Work on your 3-month storage until that is complete and then work toward the year long storage. PP=per person and PF=per family
