This month we are collecting WHEAT for our storage. You will need 100lbs of wheat per person for a year supply and that is the bare minimum. That may seem like a lot and it is :) so remember to only purchase the amounts that your budget allows. Wheat from the cannery costs $5.80 for 25lbs. That is a really easy way to stock up. Store the wheat in buckets to keep the bugs out.
If you have wheat allergies there are many other options out there to store. Whole Foods and Winco both have bulk areas that allow you to purchase any amount of flour that you need, such as spelt, rice, oat, barley, etc.
Also, you may want to think about how you will grind your wheat. If you don't have a grinder you may want to do a google search for one that will work for you. I own a Nutrimill grinder and I love it.
This month we are also stocking up on MULTI-VITAMINS AND MEDICINE. Right now at Walgreens they have Nature's Bounty vitamins on sale for buy one get one free. Most of the vitamins I have purchased have a 3 year expiration date.
Prescription medicines will have to be brought up with your doctor. Sometimes you are able to purchase a couple months worth, and other times not. Check to see if your medications allow you to do this.
Over-the-counter medicine is a little easier to stock up on. Walmart has a store brand that is very affordable and has the same ingredients as the name brands. I buy a children's ibuprofen and acetaminophen every time I go to there. I also make sure to have adult strength on hand. They are easier to buy in 500 count than children's liquid medicine.
Enjoy the journey!
Enjoy the blessings!
Feel the peace!
