Be Prepared - August: Veggies

Hey friends! Wow, I can't believe how fast this summer went and school is back in session! We are also halfway through August! WHAT?!

Well, I wanted to touch base with you all and see how you're doing on your Food Storage/ Emergency Preparedness so far.

Re-cap:
January - Milk, Cheese and Eggs
February - Grains
March - Fats and Oils
April - Garden Seeds
May - Water
June - Sugar in all its forms ex: jams and honey
July - fruit

Cash Stash: $160 up to date

You can print out each month HERE.

This month we are to be collecting veggies. One of my favorite things about prepping my food storage is canning! I don't do it often but when I do I really enjoy it. My MIL has taught me a lot. I actually just taught a good friend how to can. She came over and we canned fresh jalapenos from the garden. We had an awesome stash when we were done! Not too mention they are SUPER TASTY and HOT HOT HOT!!


If you don't know how to can it's very simple. You will need a water bath pot and accessories.

You can get one through Amazon or from Emergency Essentials.

Mason jars you can get just about anywhere, from small jelly jars to the quart size mason jars you see all over Pinterest. haha!

Pictured above I used pint and 1/2 pint jars to can the jalapenos.

If you don't want to can that fine too, you can collect canned items from the grocery store. Be sure to be on the look out for good deals on canned items. I know my local grocery store will have a Mega sale on canned goods and that is when you would want to stock up.

Remember collect what your family will eat and not just because "it's on sale". Think about what your family eats on a daily bases and go from there. Be creative.
