FAMILY HOME STORAGE

From Family Home Storage: A New Message, (Ensign, March 2009) we read:


1. Gradually build a small supply of food that is part of your normal, daily diet until it is sufficient for three months
2. Store drinking water
3. Establish a financial reserve by setting aside a little money each week, and gradually increase it to a reasonable amount
4. Once families have achieved  the first three objectives,they are counseled to expand their efforts, as circumstances allow, into a supply of long-term basic foods such as grains, legumes, and other staples."

The most important point to remember is that you need to start NOW!



"To provide providently, we must practice the principles of provident living: joyfully living within our means, being content with what we have, avoiding excessive debt, and diligently saving and preparing for rainy-day emergencies." Elder Robert D. Hales, General Conference, April 2009
