Shopping List

This is a disaster supply kit shopping list you can take to the store and actually shop from. It’s designed to keep your family self-sufficient for four days.  The food will cost about a hundred dollars, but since you actually eat the items as part of your regular meals once a year, it really costs you little.

Mark each item with the year of purchase and store them in three small plastic covered totes, so you can lift them. Buy new food and batteries each year on your birthday; then use last year’s disaster supply food for regular meals.  You probably have many of the staples already.  Just store them in the kit.
