"Let every head of household see to it that he has on had enough food and clothing, and where possible, fuel also for at least a year ahead..." - President J. Reuben Clark, 1937
"The little gardens and a few trees are very valuable. I remember when the sisters used to say, 'well, but we could buy it at the store a lot cheaper than we could put it up.' But that isn't quite the answer, is it, Sister Spafford? Because there will become a time when there isn't a store." - President Spencer W. Kimbal, General Conference 1974.
This last one has some interesting ways to start your storage - http://www.downwiththat.blogspot.com/2009/01/my-52-week-food-storage-plan.html?m=1
Another site to spark getting started...
Dehydrating - http://sensiblesurvival.org/2009/07/19/food-storage-dried-tomatoes/
Binder for your storage - http://prepared-housewives.com/2013/02/26/create-a-food-storage-binder/ (this is kind of what we were working on last year and Sis. Lee has a nice one started, make your own)
http://prepared-housewives.com/2013/06/29/homemade-taco-seasoning-gluten-msg-free/ (this is like the one I make. I do it in a large quantity so I don't have to make it when I need it, as it's there waiting)
Sites to check out on storage know-how...
http://prepared-housewives.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/everything-under-the-sun.pdf (this one above is my favorite and I suggest it to any who are starting, any who are working on their storage, and those who are already pros)
http://prepared-housewives.com/ - some interesting things to be found here.
Noodle around on the sites I have given you. I am choosing to hit food storage hard again. It is good to have skills though, so keep working on learning skills but also learn to do good tasting things from your storage or no one wants to eat it.
On a sad note, our dear cat Mr. McGuire passed away this week so this is a tribute to him - http://www.beckysbacktobasics.com/aboutthehouse.php?search.x=23&search.y=15&File=1270163412 He really loved watching that catnip video, too cute.
Keep working on your storage. Think about your little extra spending money that you have and think what you could put in storage with that amount. What would I wish I had gotten if I had no more income...? Play the what if game - it will help you think of things you didn't think of before... toilet paper is high on my list so it is not just food.
Keep pushing on with your storage - I am proud of everyone. Keep working those gardens and keep putting in your storage. Gold stars on your charts!
