    I'm going to charge a lot for toilet paper too.
    You rotate your supplies and nothing ever goes to waste, food has never gotten cheaper, all through my life it has climbed and not always gradually either. Don't forget sauces spices and sugar. I keep several bags of Morton Tender Quick cure on hand in case power goes out, I also have twelve cases of canning jars in reserve at all times in case I need to can the meat in the freezer. I can't bear the thought of wasting anything, I never have and never will.

    Well, you are right about food prices. High Inflation is going to rear it's ugly head very soon. I'm already starting to penny pinch because you just never know what's around the corner. Do creepy crawlies get into sugar bags? I haven't seen them packaged in cans. I think I'm also going to cut out my cleaning boy. It's an extra $140/month that I can save, and the calories burned up on house cleaning won't hurt.
    I'm also going to watch my gas consumption and start doing errands closer to home. I don't want to sound like a pessimist, but I think rough times are ahead, and I'm not talking about natural disasters.

    Sugar is one of the easiest to store, put sugar bags inside two gallon zip lock bags. You have to keep sugar sealed from humidity or it will turn into a brick but at least the weevils don't get it, the only bug I know that can eat it is ants but they are easy to keep out. The thing that makes weevils so bad with grain storage is that their eggs are already present in almost all grain products sitting dormant awaiting their chance. The canned products are nitrogen purged so there are no live eggs.

    Actually pretty good items, stash some canned chicken and cream of chicken soup to mix with those Ramens.

    I picked up a couple cans of Progresso Chicarina soup (the only one I'll eat) and a couple of Chef Boyardee in honor of this thread.

    My problem is that I don't like to eat processed food unless I have nothing in the frig. I also don't know if I can eat those products room temperature as I like my food piping hot. I do have a gas grill though.

    They store just fine, you can also get an adapter and run these burners off the 20 pound bottles like you use on your grill.

    On that same page as the burner they have an adapter to fill the small bottles from your gas grill bottle.
