"$uper" frugal living. "$aving" money...one idea at a time.

Shame on me for not doing my homework first.  Bad Melanie....Bad.

Anyone remember the little Food Storage Project I've posted about...and been working on.....anyone?  You know...the One Year Food Storage for $5 (ish) Dollars a Week?....yeah?  That one? 

Remember me telling you that we had to give a bit of breathing room for skyrocketing food prices (because I wasn't exactly sure how long ago the program had been written), hence the "$5(ish) dollar a week" thing, instead of just plain ol' "$5 dollars a week"?  Yeah...well.... the "ish" seems to be quite a stretch of the imagination.

As I've been out....researching this little project....I have come to a conclusion.  This little "program" is a lot older than I thought.  $5 a week...even $5 (ish) dollars a week just isn't going to cut it.  Not even close.  $10 dollars a week....maybe.  Maybe!


Time for a new "food storage" plan.  I can see it is going to take a little more work on my part.  I'll let you know what I come up with....as soon as I come up with it. 

Sorry for misleading you...it was not my intention.



  1. Not going to lie.......every time I have gone to the store since you posted this idea I have tried to figure out if American prices are really just that much cheaper then here.......lol!
    Can't wait to hear the new plan. Even if it costs more it is always nice to get a weekly break down on how to do this.....the year of food always seems daunting.

  2. Sheri...thanks for being understanding. It's good to know people are forgiving. :)

    I have crunched some numbers and it's not looking good. Just kidding. It looks more like it would cost $12-13 a week per 2 people. Whew!

    The new plan is going to be a completely different approach. I'm still trying to pull it together.
