Five Tips for Food Storage

It’s our favorite time of year, case lot sale! And you know what that means, it’s time to stock up in the pantry and beef up your food storage until October 14 (October 16 for our Toole store) or while supplies last. Now is the perfect time to find the best deals on the key items you use each day, as well as the items you hope you’ll never have to use if there’s an emergency.

Here’s five tips to help you with your food storage:

  1. It’s recommended that you have the food staples—like flour, sugar, eggs, oats and dried milk for cooking and baking. Be sure to get these in dried or canned for long-term storage. We have a great variety of Auguson farm and Western family canned products that are perfect!
  2. Be practical and buy foods you already eat. Don’t forget your canned fruits and veggies.
  3. Rotate items from your food storage, checking expiration dates. It is recommended that you use items from food storage to keep items from going to waste. Check and rotate each month to be sure you’re not letting good food go bad.
  4. Become familiar with the food storage items you buy and have recipes that use those ingredients. (This will also help with food storage rotation.)
  5. If possible, keep your storage in a place like a basement that has minimal light, moisture and heat. Its recommended that food storage is kept at 70 degrees.
