Year Supply Checklist

Another topic I have yet to dive into to much is food storage. I am the type who mostly has pantry style food storage- the kind of food storage we eat and rotate, the kind you buy at Costco. I do however have some food storage in the traditional #10 cans. The kind that lasts longer. I would love by the end of the next year to have a year supply for all four of us in #10 cans. My problem is really that I don't have the shelving for it. I have the space though and so I am on the look out for a great deal of the perfect shelving unit, which I can purchase in multiples. A post on shelving coming soon I am sure. In the mean time I have complied a year supply list of #10 cans. The list is per person and just an example. You could change out things to accommodate your families taste of course. I think I will focus on accumulating the dairy and cooking items first for our family. Focusing on one category a month maybe will make it tackle able and affordable.

Got anything you think I need to add to the list? or tips on where I can get some good shelves?
