Week 1 prepping challenge

Having decided to take part in Patchwork Times challenge of being prepared this is a summery of my first week.  On Monday I forgot the challenge and went shopping [ see previous post] but the rest of the week I have not spent a penny on buying food, even though we have run out of eggs and bananas!
The challenge has really made me think about what we eat and buy.
I am now looking forward to Judy's next week challenge.

I have decided to only blog about this once a week, so have moved the following blog post..

I have been re-stocking my food [cans] storage that got very depleted when I was recovering from my knee surgery and did not want to think about food shopping. Sometimes its not a major zombie attack we need to be ready for, illness can strike anyone and make shopping difficult.

Most of my preparing is in the form of cans of food. I would like to try bottling[canning] my own food but I need to research how to do it and wait until I can afford the equipment.

To keep my cans rotating I use an Excel sheet with the item and dates of the tins [ see photo] attached to my fridge. I only buy things we will use. Each tin that comes into the house is marked on the lid with the date in BIG letters so it is easy to read.

I cannot believe the bad luck we are having at the moment, it seems to go on and on... First the good news: I attended a sewing day at Bed...
