"A year's supply of food storage is beneficial in several ways:
1. It provides peace of mind as we obey the counsel to store.
2. It helps ensure survival in case of personal or natural disaster.
3. It strengthens skills in preparing and using basic foods" ("Home Storage: Build on the Basics," Ensign, June 1989, 40).

http://www.pinterest.com/pin/258042253622790541/ - this too is a great idea, could use as a gift for a little one. How many odd socks do we have hanging on till we find the mate?
http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Leg-Warmers-from-Old-Sweaters - this is an easy way to make leg warmers. And with colder weather coming up sooner then later, it would also be a good idea to make for your little crawlers! Use a child's sweater to make the baby leggings to save those little knees.

A reminder of what basic food is needed for one person... http://preparednessnibblesandbits.blogspot.com/2009/02/basic-food-storage-quantities.html - on this we add things we are used to eating, provided we don't eat out every day. By adding things like cinnamon, now you can have cinnamon rolls and can just add what your family likes to eat! Look at your menus and get the menus you come up with for your family and place in your binder then break it down how to get what is needed to eat that and stock up.

This week was packed with great ideas and great recipes for using your storage. Now that the heat is gone, it is back to cooking warm hearty meals, so try some of the recipes and see if you can find some that can make their way into your menus and binders!
We are all working hard and going in the same direction, we are all brothers and sisters and love each other no one is totally prepared but we can get closer to it or be further from it but as I see in our ward people are working to get closer to it.
I am thankful for Prophets and their warnings and teachings, we are blessed. Keep working on your storage!
A heads up our next class on Oct. 1st will be on storing in small spaces.
