Stock up!

MacGyver, Survivalist, or Stockpiler: The Urban Survival Skills Everyone Should Know

FEMA recommends keeping at least three days worth of food on hand at all times, but extending that out to at least a full week is a good idea. You want a wide selection of non-perishable foods, but also make sure it’s food that won’t make you thirsty. They recommend a few cheap staples:

  • Ready to eat canned meats, fruits, and vegetables.
  • Dry cereal and granola.
  • Peanut Butter.
  • Salt free crackers.
  • Canned juices.

The key is to store foods that will last a long time without refrigeration and don’t require cooking. Keep the food in a dry, safe place and make sure every member of your household knows where it is. Photo by Julie & Heidi.

    • Agreed! There are so many different items we should all have on hand in the event of an emergency. Sometimes we have to make due but, it’s always better to be prepared!
