Preparedness Tip: Rotate the Food Stockpile
Today I took an hour or so to rotate our food stockpile. It's a good idea to do this every few months so that food gets rotated, you can use up or get rid of excess food in the pantry, and so you can see which food stocks are running low. I have a big shopping list for tomorrow, mostly canned food stocks that were getting low and beans/grains that we were running out of. One bag of stuff is heading for the food bank (I bought a dozen boxes of granola bars on clearance, got them home, and didn't really care for them. We also bought a few big bags of pasta and didn't care for the texture so the excess--unopened--bags are in the food pantry box). The more organized and streamlined you keep your pantry/food storage area, the easier this process is.
