Family Storehouse Coupon Code
Are you thinking about giving emergency preparedness or food storage items to your loved ones for Christmas? I went to the Family Storehouse the other day to buy a 72 hour food kit.
I'd been thinking for a long time about what food to include in our 72 hour kits. Most of the advice out there is to have ready-to-eat food that requires little to no cooking. That usually translates into canned foods which are great but really weigh down the pack and take up space.
Then I can across Family Storehouse and noticed that they sell a 72 hr kit with 33 servings including milk that weighs only 3 lbs!
I think it is a great option especially if you are evacuating because it frees up so much space and weight. I bought 2.
All their meals come in 5 serving pouches that only require water to make. Yes, I know. Water is heavy. I don't plan on including more than drinking water in my 72 hr kits because I figure the only way we will be needing to eat this food is if we are evacuated or sheltering in place.
There will be water at the shelter. Or we could use the water we have stored at home if we are sheltering in place and need to eat this food. (And I have extra water stored in my car trunks in case we are stranded somewhere.)
What's best about this food is that is can last up to 25 years. Now I don't have to worry about rotating so often. I'm sure I still will though. I can imagine these little pouches would be great on camping trips.
Can you tell how excited I am about this?
I met the owner of the store while I was there. We talked about emergency preparedness and food storage of course. I told him all about my blog and he offered to give my readers a promo code for 10% off any purchase! Awesome huh?
They carry all sorts or long-term food storage kits out of the same food pouches ranging from 5-8 servings. I can imagine what a treat it would be to have no cook meals like Chicken ala King and Beef Stroganoff some nights if we were living exclusively off our food storage.
They also have first aid kits, emergency supplies, survival tools and water treatment equipment. I'm asking for their water filter system for Christmas...it's awesome.
So if you are interested you can check them out at FamilyStorehouse.net and don't forget to use your 10% off by typing in provprincess at checkout.
Merry Christmas Shopping!
