Build up your food storage by copy canning!
What’s the easiest way to build up your food storage? One can at a time by copy canning!
If you are just beginning the food storage adventure, here are three helpful hints to get you started!
- Make a menu of meals for the week. Include the meals that you eat most often for breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner…. and don’t forget desert!
- Now make a shopping list based off this menu.
- After looking over your shopping list choose an item that you can buy multiples of easily – or inexpensively if it’s been a tight month. (ex. a can of cream of chicken soup, or 10.) This method of buying multiple cans at once is called copy canning.
Copy canning is an effective way to build your food storage on a budget. Think about it, these days a can of soup costs as much as a candy bar. So what am I saying? I’ll just say it, lay off the candy bar, buy the soup!
