Basics of Stockpiling





Introduction: Basics of Stockpiling

It may not be today or tomorrow or it just might not happen but is and most likely when shtf you will want to be prepared with stockpiles of supplies. Some people may say and think they can hunt but if you can't then how are you going to get he necessary food for you and your family? Well today I'm going to explain the basics of food stockpiling for the end of the world

Step 1: What Not to Stock Pile

If the shtf any thing that is in your fridge or freezer will go bad first. Another thing that will quickly turn is bread, it will last longer than the refrigerated items by eventually it will mold. If an emergency is present you can use the food from your fridge to eat first or have a big party, if you have the big party cooking your food the friends that ate there could in turn give you food when you need it.

Step 2: The Best

In my opinion if you have the money I recommend stock piling things like Mre (meals ready to eat) which you can pick up online or at a military surplus store. Or instead you could get a backpackers meal witch is just more expensive although it is not only smaller but also lighter. So I would recommend backing meals if you are low on space, but if not go with MRE's they are less expensive and have a little more food. Remember the calorie dence food is best.

Step 3: A Second Option

Even if you have the items listed above I recommend having more. In this case it is a cheap and good alternative. Ramen , rice and pasta or any dried grain. These are cheap and take up barely any space. You most likely already have some. This would be a great deal breaker if you are on a budget but still want to be prepared.

Step 4: Another Option

The next item you can easily and cheaply Stock Pile is canned food. Every time you go shopping grab one or two cans and eventually you'll have a lot more then you ever thought you would get.

Step 5: Essentials

These may not be for consuming but trust me they are essential. This group would have alcohol , honey and seasonings and sauces. All these items could easily be traded for more useful items to you. Lots of people would trade food for a shot of liquor

Step 6: Water

This one is simple and doesn't need explaining, water the most important thing. If you don't want to buy it simply go to a car dealer ship and snag a few bottles I have gotten loads when I went to get a new car. Another way is to pay a few dollars at a gas station to fill jugs and viola a new stock pile.

Step 7: Conclusion

To conclude I would recommend stock piling food for an inevitable disaster. I would recommend the essentials for sure and for food I would gather all kinds because then you have options.

It is much better to have a more reasonable amount of basic as these items then to have such ! Rich food that seem to spoil with in its time base ! I really wish you all the best ! thanks

Thanks for sharing my Instructables I like your stock pile it looks pretty good

Canned ravioli, one of my favorite lunch foods. I would eat it cold- that is to say at room temperature, it was actually quite tasty too. When shopping for more, I would shake the can- if I heard a slight liquid sound, I'd buy it, if no sound I knew it'd be too dry and would keep shaking others 'till I got what I wanted.
