This is the best inexpensive guide to family emergency storage available! You'll find it to be an excellent starting point for building an emergency readiness library.

The first portion of the book focuses on food storage. It covers many aspects of the subject in considerable depth, presenting eight different plans which you can use to guide your family's personal storage program. These range from the basic five foods to comprehensive plans involving many foods, and also includes programs based on dehydrated foods and freeze-dried products. Valuable information is provided on rotating foods to maintain freshness, the average shelf-life of numerous food products, and detailed insights on controlling food-storage factors such as temperature, moisture, time, light, and insect elimination. Plans are provided for making an inexpensive rolling-can shelf unit. The focus shifts to quantity food buying, and the book provides numerous tips on how to use your funds to the best advantage. Then the entire food-storage process is summarized in the Keys to Successful Food Storage chapter.

The second portion of the book deals with other types of emergency storage. Its coverage includes emergency heating, medical supplies, paper goods and sanitation needs, and storing clothing and gardening supplies.

Your Guide to Emergency Home Storage presents a broad spectrum of essential ideas that will help you begin and organize your family's personal readiness program effectively.
