One Year Basic Food Storage for $5 (ish) Dollars A Week--January

If you missed reading One Year Basic Food Storage for $5 (ish) dollars a week--Overview, head on over and take a look.  Otherwise, none of this will make sense.  :)

So...here are January's weekly lists.

Keep in mind that this list is for every 2 people in your family.  Adjust the food and $$ amounts according to your needs.  Also...remember that some weeks you may have extra....save that change in an envelope or jar for the weeks that you will go over, because it will happen, but it all evens out in the end.

Okay...and one more thing.  We do have to cater to inflation.  This "go around" is sort of experimental.  I'm going to try $6 a week for every 2 people ($18 for my family) and see how that works out.  I really have no idea.

Okay....I think that's all the prefaces....

WEEK ONE:  5 cans Cream of Chicken Soup
WEEK TWO:  8 cans Tomato Soup (our family is substituting Chicken Noodle)
WEEK FOUR:  20 LBS sugar
WEEK FIVE:  50 LBS wheat

So...happy Food Storage-ing this month.

Don't hesitate to report back with your questions or finds.


  1. This is totally the kick start I need to get back into the groove of stocking up the food storage. Thanks!!

  2. $5 a week is doable! I never thought about the small bills before. We don't normally have cash, but I'll have to get some. Thank you for posting this!!!

  3. Oh and I love the story about your parents paying off their mortgage!
