Food storage can be overwhelming. Knowing what to buy can be difficult and buying items you will use before their “best by” can be especially challenging.

Here are a few tips to help you with your food storage:

  • It’s recommended 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 packages for long-term storage. We have a great variety of Auguson Farms and Western Family canned products that are perfect for you food storage needs. Plus, the case lot sale provides the best pricing of the year on many of your favorites.!
  • Be practical and buy foods you already eat. Don’t forget your canned or frozen fruits and veggies.
  • Rotate items from your food storage, checking expiration dates. It is recommended 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.
  • Become familiar with the food storage items you buy and have recipes that use those ingredients. (This will also help with food storage rotation.)
  • If you put foods such as rice, flower, sugar, etc. in other containers make sure you label them with when they were purchased and when they expire.
  • If possible, keep your storage in a place like a basement that has minimal light, moisture and heat. It’s recommended that food storage is kept at 70 degrees or cooler.
