"Let us be in a position so we are able to not only feed ourselves through the home production and storage, but others as well." (President Ezra Taft Benson)
I want to tell you what my mother-in-law told me years ago. She said never ever go into debt for Christmas but to give within your means instead. Very good advice.
The ones you give to would not want to know you will be making payments all year on their gift.
If people gave me gifts I would want food storage items, totally would love it!
So parents think about food storage gifts for your kids away from home. Add family favorite recipes, how fun is that?
If you know someone struggling, make them a food care package, be sure to toss in chocolate and goodies with it.
It is not too early think on gifts for giving at Christmas time.

I have given you great places to start.
I again say give food storage. I was able one year to give a case of veggies, another year an oil lamp set.
So think of those you give to and please stay in budget.
Keep working on storage and keep working on skills and start working on Christmas.
Do it with love.
