Another week of growing my food storage with just $5. I'm always thinking of ideas to make it grow faster on a tight budget. If you have an idea or tip, be sure to share it.
I've canned several jars of salsa from produce grown from our garden. Love it when the food storage grows without having to spend my $5!
Last week I purchased 6 cans of corn from Dollar General. The price is 3 cans for $2. This is a fair price but I'm watching for a rock bottom sale at one of the grocery stores because I know I can get it even cheaper than this, but needed to get some corn in the pantry. Our favorite canned vegetables are corn, green beans and carrots.
Some of my family's other favorites that I purchase often are:
This isn't all I buy, but I like to buy what we use the most of and are used to eating. I add other items but just not in large quantities such as applesauce (great for baking as well) beans, and crackers.
I need to get my storage organized and cleaned up so I can post a picture of my progress.
In the next couple of months when the weather is cooler I will be canning meats.
Have any of you been adding to your food storage?
