Food Storage

We're finally stocking up on food storage!
We bought a freezer off of Craigslist this week (thank you to the Tonks for letting us use their truck again). This morning we went to Costco and bought another shelf, and spent the whole morning/afternoon cleaning out the garage. We finally got it all set up, and decided while we were on a roll to go to Winco and start our supply. The day went almost without a hitch until we were unloading the last bag and a jar of spaghetti sauce broke and splattered everywhere. After another 45 min. of unanticipated clean up, and a melt down from Eli, we're done for the day. We'll have to do a Costco and Trader Joe's trip before our 3 month store is complete, but we're well on our way. I can't tell you how good it feels to be just a little bit prepared.

Compared to our family, that looks like a three-month supply for mice! Half of Hylton's closet is consumed with boxes from the cannery and that's not including the whole pantry downstairs! Maybe it takes less space to store chips and dips... :)
