Levitcus 25:18 “If you want to live securely in the land, follow my decrees and obey my regulations. ( This is the main point of living securely) 19 Then the land will yield large crops, and you will eat your fill and live securely in it. 20 But you might ask, ‘What will we eat during the seventh year, since we are not allowed to plant or harvest crops that year?’ 21 Be assured that I will send my blessing for you in the sixth year, so the land will produce a crop large enough for three years. 22 When you plant your fields in the eighth year you will still be eating from the large crop of the sixth year. In fact, you will still be eating from that large crop when the new crop is harvested in the ninth year.

Having a stash of extra food in your pantry will not fix every problem that comes along, but it gives a little peace of mind. It can save a little cash, too. If you have a healthy pantry whether big or small financial problems arise ( like new tires) you can skip buying a lot of groceries and have the ability to shop from your own store ( pantry). My Father one year planted potatoes and he already had several years of potatoes all ready put up. So I asked why did he plant so many. He said you never know what a year may bring so if you are blessed with food take it as a blessing and preserve some or all of it. He also stated some years your garden fails and when that happens you want to be prepared.
Now you don't have to garden to put up storage. You can order your food online all at once that is already preserved for you. You can take 20 or so dollars each time you go to the store and start little by little putting things back. Some are good at watching for sales and coupons which can be used
for putting up food and supplies while you have abundance.
Where to start on setting up your pantry is to make a list of one or two weeks worth of food you like or want to eat. Be sure to include condiments and staples. Then separate into categories such as meats,
vegetables, dry goods etc. Then decide where you can store these items. You can turn a closet into a storage area. I have even seen plastic tubs that roll out from under the bed. One lady built a storage unit behind her couch! Then next depending on how much space you have, start with your dry goods. I use repurposed large mayo jugs to store beans, pasta, etc. to consoldate items in my pantry. Then each time you go to the store try to add some items. Shop from you pantry, freezer etc. when you are deciding to cook that way you will know what you are missing and what you need to make your "store" complete. Once you get started date the item when you bring it in to see how long it lasts. Once you
have that number you can multiply that to see how many you need for one year or three years.
Remember most grocery store have only three days of food if a disaster strikes. We need to be prepared to feed our families. Lets do it now while we have the abundant years.
