15 Paper Products You Need To Store For Survival

Here are 15 paper products you need to store for survival, please start with a few and add more as your budget allows. This is the minimum number of items we will need but let’s talk about these today. I have been thinking about what’s going on in the world, and I feel very strongly that we need to stockpile a few of these items. I remember teaching an emergency preparedness class in Salt Lake City, Utah and one of the class members mentioned she felt like I was hoarding stuff. We were talking about storing toilet paper and paper products that could be used after a disaster. I wasn’t offended and I got the giggles because probably in her eyes I am a hoarder. But I’m not a hoarder of junk only necessities I use every day. I do not like running to the store to buy toilet paper. Oh my gosh, I have to tell you this story, I was at a local store a few weeks ago and I saw this woman carrying a package of toilet paper with four rolls in it. Oh my goodness, that wouldn’t last a week at my house.

I’m sharing some food storage secrets you need to know before you go crazy buying food for your pantry. I’m talking about long term food storage today. Let me say one thing, I do not look at the calories in the #10 cans I purchase because I don’t count calories in the food I’m eating today. I probably should, but I don’t. This is how I see food storage for Mark and me, the food I purchase we must both like eating. Sure, I can hear some of you say, you will eat whatever if you are starving. Yes, I’m sure that may be true. Here’s the deal, I do not buy meals, nope, I will not. I cook from scratch and I don’t like the stuff listed on the packaged “meals” for long-term storage.

Have No Fear If You Are Prepared For Survival

You will have no fear if you are prepared for survival, I promise. There is something about going to bed at night knowing I have water, food, and a few emergency items I can survive with. Now, this didn’t happen overnight it was a little of this and a little of that collected over many years. Sometimes we need a little push to be prepared for survival or a pat on the back for being prepared to survive almost any situation. I sometimes have to sit back and say to myself, Linda all is well, God will take care of your neighborhood, you cannot do it all yourself. I take a deep breath and say, thank you God for reminding me that I can’t do it all.  I do not have the room or money to provide for my entire neighborhood, I am prepared to take care of Mark and myself.
