Are you well stocked? For how many months could you rely on your own supplies? I cleaned out our pantry a couple months ago and sorted stuff and have been trying to stock up as we can afford it. It has been fun. I have to admit I do leave my flour in their bags so far and have not had any problems--have quite a few bags of pastry flour and then also have a separate area for bread flour. I put bay leaves around them; so far so good. Right now I have about SEVENTY pounds of flour in five pound bags and THIRTY pounds of the bread flour in ten pound bags. Then I have miscellaneous (sp?) flours too like bulgar and rye and cornmeal and a huge old plastic popcorn container of regular oats. The oats will no doubt last over a year, at our rate of use as it is now. Need to build up my rice supply. We use a lot of noodles; have quite a few pounds of that, but seems like that is what we really eat a lot of. I have SIXTY pounds of white sugar and many bags of the brown and powdered. This coming harvest season I am going to concentrate of canning more and having more of my own tomato stuff. My pantry is only half size as it's also a library on the other wall. But I do have five really large shelves crammed with food stuffs. Hubby says it looks like a little store. I would say, though, we have about six months worth of food there, but that would be if we relied on powdered milk, which is not tasty. I need to get some powdered eggs, too. I have some yeast that is good for another year, but would have to no doubt rely on a sourdough mix if we were not able to purchase yeast. Also, keep a lot of shortening and oils. The lighter the oil, the longer it will last. The easiest and cheapest thing to stock for me has been salt and baking soda and powder. Some of the spices are a good place to start as well. In a way, it's hard to know what you'd run out of first, if you had to rely on your own stuff. For us, I think it would be vegetables and that is what I need to work on.
