This site is really nice. It has so much information and videos for me to learn from. They have step by step instructions that you can accomplish so you don't forget anything. They will also send you an email every two weeks letting you know what you should do next. There are Excel worksheets where you can put in meals that your family will eat and it will multiply the quantities so you know exactly how much you need. You can put in how much you have on hand so you know if you need to buy more. My suggestion is to go to their website and browse around. I am really enjoying browsing and learning from their cute site. This is where I am downloading the book from.
The second thing, that my mom suggested, is a series of YouTube food storage videos by Wendy Dewitt. There are 9 videos from a class that she taught. As I was watching them, I was really wishing I was better organized. She has every meal planned out for a year. A loaf of bread and desserts for every day too!! I am so impressed.

Another blog I found with a lot of good information along with some good sounding recipes is called Preparedness Matters. "This site provides information to help individuals and families become more prepared for adversity in life". This site emphasizes five areas of preparedness:
- Food and Water Storage
- Financial Preparedness
- Spiritual Preparedness
- Emergency Preparedness
- Provident Living
And finally, I would like to thank my friend Kris for giving me a start of her Oregon Pioneer Hop Yeast Starter. I do love homemade bread but never take the time to make it. So with this starter, and the recipes she gave me, I am going to fill the house up with the scent of homemade fresh bread. It is going to be so yummy!
I hope you enjoy these sites. If anyone has any other good food storage sites that they like, please let me know. I would love to hear about them.
