      We hit 1 year....and then continued to do the "buy cheap...stack deep". Buy on sale....use coupons.....what have you. We also will generally go with the $10.00 rule when shopping....that is....buy $10.00 worth of LTS food every trip to the store. If you do this....you'll find that it brings stores up to amazing levels quickly.

      You always tend to hear "beans and rice"....which is good....but try eating only that for a couple weeks.....yikes....and whew...:). Spices were currency for a reason.

      Look in your cabinets....buy more of that....and try to start cooking from stores...or food that is similar to stores....to make the transision easier. This is especially relavent with kids....they can be bull headed....and that is a stress that you do not need in the event...

Just look at what a soldiers communication with home can do for not only him, but also the family back home. I often think people forget about what the families go through back home.

            Having plans is important, but it really is amazing to see how the best made plans can fall to pieces when everything starts going crazy.

            Thanks for jumping in!
            I agree planning has it's limits though in this case it serves some purpose. Getting back to the shock of SHTF Day we need everything going for us we can have. The medic I mentioned should be the person easiest to talk to and be the best listener and observer. I suggest a list of each persons skills, strengths and weaknesses. The medic needs to have not only the ability to monitor themself but everyone. People can be very bad off and not realize it and early help is the best help.

            One positive approach I think is to be in your "bunker" before the disaster strikes. People can get to assume their new roles as if the old no longer exists including the foods and work they'll do daily almost like a dry run. Then when the worst happens there already is a solid base going to minimize the difficulties of too much change at once. As a rule we don't take easily to small changes let alone the biggest.
