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.
