February Is All About the Chocolate, Right!
February is a great time for Travel and Chocolate! Love is good to :). While you’re adding to your storage this month add in a treat or two 🙂 My personal favorite at this time is Chocolate Cinnamon bears (or plain cinnamon bears or lips) and the Strawberry Cream Lindt Lindor truffles YUMMY!!!!
Okay… When you buy your stuff remember to store the oldest date stuff in the front and rotate through it before its expired. The canned or bagged storage food has a 25 year shelf life (not canned beans and corn) actual stuff that has been packaged as food storage.
If you see an item say corn if it where me I might get fresh corn to eat but I would buy a Food Storage Large Can (made for food storage) of dried corn that will last for 25+ years. Sugar for example I will buy 6 thinks of sugar and put all but one in storage and rotate through it. and restock as needed.
