MONTHLY PREPARATION LIST...LDS

Recommended Posts

Guest Guest

As AK was sorting and shredding old papers, he found a list I had printed from '98 or early '99. I found it on the LDS website.

 

I'm having a hard time getting this typed; I spilled a cup of coffee on my desk yesterday, and shorted out my regular keyboard. For now, I'm using an old one we had in the attic, and the keys stick. I've ordered a new one, but it won't be here for a week or so.and this one is driving me crazy! I'll get this list started but, I'll have to add a little at a time 'cause this is too slow with sticky keys. Sooo... here is the first couple of months.

I don't see that it should be a problem to use the listed items, as long as you don't use the quotes. After all, it's little more than a grocery list.

Has anyone figured out a way to have long term storage of baby wipes without them drying out? Even when I have not opened the outer seal on the package I used a box I bought about 14 months ago and there was no moisture.

I had a pop up container of those cheapo wipes for several years, and they were still fine when I opened them.

 

If you can't keep them in a cool, dry closet or something, out of direct sunlight, try vacuum sealing the refill packages. That may work but, I make no promises...

A long time ago, I found this list. It became the basis

for my prep list. Now, it has a few items which I wonder

about because they are electricl but all in all I think

it is a superior list for getting ideas as well as

checking your preps. I may have posted this before but I

felt it was important enough to post again.

These are some incredible lists. Paired with Nana's $20/wk plan, I can see how it would be easy for a family to put together the plan that best suited their needs and financial abilities.

 

I appreciate the things all of you ladies have shared!

I can't see why you still couldn't use them by just adding some water to them and letting them sit before using?

Even if they dry out they should still have enough 'cleansers' in them to be reconstituted with some water?

 

Or you might find it to be better to just store some bottles of baby wash and some extra wash cloths instead?

While coming home from the cannery last night with my step mom we talked about this very subject!! I had mentioned that I had a ton of baby wipes but they'd dried out. She said to just add 1/4th cup of water and they'd be just fine and to definantly not throw them away. She said to just leave them dry and reconstitute when needed. Sounded good to me. :)

I don't know that its not posted somewhere else in this forum since I'm new. But the place I buy bulk oils from, for soapmaking has probably the BEST prices for oils, you can get 50 lbs of lard for $ 40

 

I go to http://www.columbusfoods.net/ You can get 50 lb buckets of coconut oils, 35 lb of liquid oils, such as sunflower. If anyone else has a cheaper source I'm all ears!

I've just discovered a series of videos by Wendy Dewitt (also an LDS member) along with her website on food storage hints. You can find and print out the booklet she refers to in the videos there as well.

 

Here's the link to the YouTube videos:

 

and here's the link to her blog with the booklet info: http://everythingunderthesunblog.blogspot..../11/book-2.html

 

Her system makes sense because it's geared to specific menus for each week.

:bump1: I'm bumping this up for Katz recent request. We all have our own preferences, food allergies, food likes/dislikes, budgets, and where we are starting from. I think it helps to look over a bunch of different plans and then begin to piece together your own. Tailor-made. Takes some work but we need the knowledge anyway.

 

 

ONE IMPORTANT NOTE: Some of the plans suggest getting 'a whole bunch of this' and then next month or week getting 'a whole bunch of that'. If it's possible in your weekly/monthly budget, try to get a variety in case the hooey hits fan before you have collected only 'a whole bunch of' one thing. Not always possible if you are trying to save enough for a 25# or 50# bag ]cheaper in bulk]. But just keep the principle in mind.
