Re: Rotating emergency food stocks

It only takes a quarter hour management per week. How you manage your stock will be your way,of course,but managed properly it must be.No excuses.To put it in context,how would you react if the food you purchased was all close to/ off date? Your stock should be managed as well as the place you buy ...

Re: vac-packing existing bags of food?

If I were to vac pack, say pasta,then yes, I would pierce the bag first. As for extending life of product,I don’t think it will make h much difference to the date on the original pack( OP)Storing in OP in cool , dark place is best. Vac packin was devised for fresh food originally. Officially, no vac...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

Sorry to hear you're that poorly, jansman - don't do too much while you're ill, that's how it drags on and on (I'm thinking of the firewood chopping - sitting fishing, as long as you don't let yourself get chilled, sounds good!) :mrgreen: I've ordered the batteries, and a pyrex bowl to get free P&P...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

And I've finally got an appointment to have a flu vaccination. Just read this https://www.theguardian.com/society/2019/feb/20/britons-urged-to-get-flu-vaccine-as-critical-cases-rise-above-2000 This year's version isn't as virulent, but its a lot worse if you get it, apparently. The first sentence s...

Re: Rotating emergency food stocks

This is rather timely.We have let the pantry run right down,so that we can move a !ot more stuff ,' forward'.Being off work ( we timed it that way) we reloaded the shelves,and moved stock from storeroom 1 to 2.This leaves space to restock longer dated grub.Took about an hour and 20 mins.Normally,as ...

It is Arzosah. Although I don’t consider myself an environmentalist, I have a lot of time for Friends Of The Earth. When folks are hungry, they will care, but only then I am afraid.

Re: Rotating emergency food stocks

I am sure that I will say it yet again,but why buy stuff you don't use? It just proves how cushy this country is.If I were to chuck a tenner's worth of grub out,it would hurt because it takes me an hour's graft to earn it! Wasted food,wasted money,wasted hour of life! A while back there was a discus...

Re: Rotating emergency food stocks

Would you set light to ten pound notes? That is the same as wasting food.

Re: Rotating emergency food stocks

No excuses.Wasted food is wasted money.My wife and I were brought up poor.Born in the sixties we saw tough times.My wife particularly,hates wasted food.In fact it upsets her if an egg from one of our fowls gets broken. :cry: I really mean that. Whatever food you have should be eaten or donated whils...
