Re: Rotating emergency food stocks

I don't hate you ;) Personally though, although there are some things I'll probably stock that I normally wouldn't use, I would try to keep things as close to my normal food buying as possible. I know I could obviously stock up incredibly quickly using Happy Shopper style, cheap as chips, tasteless ...

Rotating emergency food stocks

Is it as simple as each time you buy a couple of tins of beans you put them in your emergency store and take a couple out from there and put them in your kitchen cupboard or do people operate different systems?

Re: Food Prices Increasing Already?

It's not the food prices increasing that have caught my attention more the getting less for the same price. Chocolate bars are the obvious example.

The other thing I've noticed are supermarkets doing less of their own brand economy products.

Thankfully it was only a small one I recently bought. Hopefully she doesn't go raiding the prep cupboard now though. :roll:

Strangely that post headed by my name seems a mix of my questions and someone else's answers :?:

My wife was quite surprised today when she didn't have any pasta and I magically produced some from a cupboard outside the kitchen :D

Best cooking system for SHTF situation

I obviously know how to start a fire for cooking purposes but there might be occasions when you need to use a camping type stove. I've got an old meths Trangia and a small gas stove. Which cooking system would you have as a backup in a SHTF situation and why?

No matter how isolated your bug out property is isn't someone eventually going to come knocking?

I was reading an article in favour of keeping mobile v buying a property. Obviously some of the problems with the former, unless you're on foot, are going to be fuel eventually running out, mechanical breakdowns etc. However, the issues that led to the preference for mobility were valid too. In a SH...
