The events happening today can be a bit scary, considering we have no clue what will happen from day to day. A prime example of this is the fact that Russia has invaded Ukraine. Now sanctions are being imposed on Russia, which supplies our fuel here in the United States. Fuel prices are already high because President Biden slowed the fuel production in the United States to purchase it from Russia.
Of course, this has a ripple effect, fuel goes up, food prices go up, housing goes up. Income stays the same. Which is one of the significant reasons to prep. Now, I am not saying you have to go out and buy out of the store. You should do it slowly, a little each month. This will allow you to rotate the older products to the front of your pantry so you can put the new ones in the back.
Our ongoing supply chain shortages make it hard to get goods at the grocery store right now. Then you hear on social media it is only going to get worse. When are they saying it will get better in two years or more?
A good scenario we should all adapt is to stock up as if the next day is the beginning of winter. Canning is a significant source for preparing for the future. Please, check out the different ways of canning before you buy your cooker whether it be Pressure Canning or Water Bath, this way you get the right pot to do what you are looking to store in your pantry.
As civil unrest and natural disasters happen more and more, it could be wise to learn from the best. These folks have been doing these things for a while. They have some expert knowledge that could benefit anyone who wants to keep their family safe.
