Food Storage for $5.00 per Week

This week I am sharing a wonderful little resource I was given by our Food Storage Specialist in my ward. I am not sure who came up with this wonderful list, but if you know, will you please tell me so I can give proper credit?

The basis of the sheet I was given is that you can gather an entire year's worth of food storage for two people with just five dollars per week. Some weeks will cost a little less, and some weeks will cost a bit more. But the average money spent is just five dollars. It is suggested that you save the change from the five dollars so you can use it n the weeks that the items cost a bit more. I am sure that some of this will depend on where you shop and how you obtain your supplies. But I really do think that broken down this way, it makes getting a year's supply seem reachable, doesn't it?

At the end of one year, you will end up with 500 pounds of wheat, 180 pounds of sugar, 40 pounds of powdered milk, 12 pounds of salt, 10 pounds of honey, 5 pounds of peanut butter, 45 cans tomato soup, 15 cans cream of mushroom soup, 15 cans cream of chicken soup, 24 cans of tuna, 21 boxes of macaroni and cheese, 500 aspirin, 1000 multi-vitamins, 6 pounds of yeast, 6 pounds of shortening, and 12 pounds of macaroni.

This should be enough to sustain two people for one year. For every two people in your family, add $5.00 more and double or triple the amount of the item you are purchasing that week.

Here is the breakdown, so it doesn't seem so overwhelming.

Week 1-- 6 pounds salt,
