  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 Augason 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.
We hope these tips help keep your food storage stocked and ready to go! Happy Shopping!

Pantry ready for case lot?

Get your pantry ready for Case Lot

Spring is coming and it’s time to get organized. Maybe it was a New Year’s resolution that fell to the wayside, but there is still time to rearrange and clean up before Case Lot is over. Here are three steps to get your pantry clean and organized for spring:

  1. Clean it Out!

First thing you will want to do is get everything out of your pantry. Take every last can out so you can see what you have and then you can start sorting your items. Separate your items into four categories: things you use every day, things you use occasionally, things you want to donate and things you need to trash.

  1. Clean Up!

Now that your pantry is empty, take advantage of it and wipe down all your shelves. Getting rid of the crumbs and dust will make your pantry feel ten times more organized. Take a damp cloth over all your shelves and then let them dry completely before you begin restocking.

  1. Stock It!

Visit Macey’s and purchase everything you need from our Case Lot sale. See our ad [add link here] for all our great savings. Now that you have your food, let the organization begin. Separate your pantry in zones; this is the best way to make sure you won’t be dealing with unorganized chaos in a few months. Start by putting all your baking items in one section, breakfast items in another, lunch items in another, ect. Organizing by meals will A) make meal prep more simple and B) keep your pantry organized. Another zone you may want to include is a snack zone. Make your snack zone easy to access so your smaller family members will be able to reach and they won’t need to go ripping through your organized shelves searching for their favorite snack.

We hope these steps help you get your pantry in perfect order for Case Lot.

Welcome Fall with Augason Farms

This is the month when the seasons change. Leaves change color and fall to the ground, the weather cools and our thoughts turn to the upcoming winter activities and the holidays.

 

Nothing compares with the enticing aroma of baking bread or rolls. That means having Augason Farms Honey White Bread and Roll Mix in your food storage is a must, for emergencies or everyday bread making as well. It produces delicious, nourishing bread or rolls for any occasion. And it’s simple to prepare: Just add water, oil, and yeast. Its satisfying flavor and texture are filling, nourishing and wonderfully light.

Whether you are a long-time food storage person or just starting out, Macey’s has what you need. Like all the fine products we provide, Augason Farms offers the best quality food storage items at big savings any time.

While all the Augason Farms products are classic food storage items for meal preparation, Live Prepared is a line of quick and easy entrées, dishes and drinks for storage, without need for the time consuming preparation process. You need only add water to produce hearty and wholesome, people-pleasing dishes. They make excellent, quick and easy meals for emergencies, for daily use and camping as well.

If you’ve put off getting your food storage, now might be the very best time to start. And if you already have stored food, consider adding to it with items you do not yet have or are favorites with your family.

Simply acquiring food storage isn’t enough, though. You need to gain experience using food designed for long-term storage. It requires some familiarity with their unique preparation techniques for the best outcome. Occasionally using products from your food storage and then replacing them also helps keep your supplies fresh. In addition, you learn which foods your family prefers and how best to prepare them.

And remember, like everything we offer at Macey’s, these are the very best food storage products on the market. Premium quality at a money-saving price is the hallmark of our offerings.

So October is an excellent time to pick up extra food storage items from Augason Farms and Live Prepared at bargain prices in all Macey’s outlets.
