Save By Stocking

How long could you survive on just the food in your home?

My wife, Ann keeps our freezer full and pantry stocked. There’s security in being prepared for an emergency. It’s convenient and saves time and money. We buy what we eat and cook mostly from scratch. The nutritional value is higher and the cost is lower.

Try building your meals around items on sale. Plan menus and make a list. Allow some money for sale or clearance items that you know you’ll use. Proverbs 21:20 says: “The wise store up choice food and oil.” By planning ahead, your food bill will drop and the money you save can go towards debt or savings.
