As we near the end of summer, you might have canning and long-term food storage on your mind. If you are building up your food supplies for an emergency situation, you want to make the most of your resources and your space.

However, it pays to be picky when it comes to what you store on your survival pantry shelves. In fact, there are some foods that you shouldn’t stockpile. Here is our top seven list of foods you never should stockpile:

Instead, look for sales on non-perishable items that you enjoy eating. It will make things a lot easier during an already stressful time for your family.

1. Flour. You can store all-purpose white flour at room temperature for only about six to eight months. After that period, flour can develop a particularly unpleasant smell, and flour weevils may hatch and grow. For better long-term storage, stock up on wheat instead of flour.

2. Brown rice. With its naturally high oil content, brown rice stays fresh for less than six months on your pantry shelf. For long-term storage, place white rice in airtight containers.

This Is The World’s Healthiest Storable Survival Food!

Adding a few oxygen absorbers (small, food-safe packets that contain an iron powder) can help keep your white rice fresh.

3. Saltine crackers. If you have ever smelled saltines that have been stored for more than six months, you probably learned this lesson the hard way. Stale saltines can create quite a stench. Rotate through your saltines every few months and store them in airtight containers with oxygen absorbers for best results.

4. Breakfast cereal. For best taste, store cereals in airtight containers and rotate through them every six to eight months. A better – and usually healthier — long-term choice is to store rolled oats in your survival pantry. You can prepare hot breakfast cereal as well as other dishes with rolled oats, and when stored in dark airtight containers with oxygen absorbers, they can last for years.

5. Brown sugar. Brown sugar does not spoil easily, but it does get rock hard. Instead of storing brown sugar, store white sugar and molasses. Then you can create your own fresh brown sugar by combining one tablespoon of molasses with one cup of white sugar.

6. Canned tomato products. Canned tomato sauce, tomato paste and tomatoes tend to leak, bulge or separate along a seam during long-term storage. Be sure to rotate through your tomato products regularly to avoid this problem.

7. Foods you don’t normally eat. This sounds like a no-brainer, but many people are seduced by sale prices on canned and packaged goods. It doesn’t matter if you got a rock-bottom price on all those cans of spinach. If you and your family don’t eat canned spinach on a regular basis, you probably won’t want to eat it in an emergency, either. You will have wasted money and precious storage space.

As a general rule, it is best not to store your food items in their original store packaging. For long-term storage, transfer your goods to airtight containers. That way, they will be better protected from humidity, rodents and insects.

It is a good idea to do a monthly stockpile review. Check for expiration dates and inspect containers for any signs of damage from moisture, temperature, insects or rodents. Keeping your stockpile in a good, ready-to-eat state will save you valuable storage space and will help you make sure you have what you need if and when you need it.

Prepping Mistakes You Should Avoid

Prepper's Will - Prepping mistakes you should avoid There are many times when people wish they were more careful and better prepared for a situation. How many times you said to yourself “Oh! I wish I haven’t done that..” or “Oh well, it’s too late now, let’s check what we can salvage”. Preparing for something means you’ll have the resources available to get you past any difficult situation and you should avoid making mistakes. Some of the prepping mistakes described in this article are being made without even realizing it.

You’ve always wanted to learn more about the prepping world and you are eager to improve your survival skills, but making prepping mistakes is inevitable. It’s not the end of the world and you can always learn from your prepping mistakes.

While you should be concerned about the government, the economy, and natural disasters, you should also be concerned about how you are prepping, if you have everything you need and if it’s possible that you’ve made some prepping mistakes without knowing it.

Here are the prepping mistakes most of us make, without even realizing it:
Being a loud mouth is not wise

Keep it secret because nobody needs to know about your supplies, your guns and your prepping methods. Some preppers will not shut about it and I can’t understand them. They will tell their friends, the media and social networks like it’s the biggest achievement of their life. Some preppers will talk with everyone else around them about what they are doing, what they have stored and what they plan to do if S hits the fan. The problem with this should be obvious. If something will happen, people will be herding to your home, demanding you to give up everything you’ve worked so hard for and bragged so easy about. Maybe you should keep it safe by not saying a word to anyone and becoming a lone wolf. Even your closest friends can turn on you when the times are harsh. Although I understand the need of acceptance and the need to be part of a community, being a loud mouth is one of the biggest prepping mistakes you can make. There are other ways to find trust-worthy people that have the same interests as you. You have to play it smart and you have to keep most of it to yourself.

Stranger Danger

You should not trust strangers, especially in an emergency situation. I don’t think I’m the only one that has noticed about our society becoming less and less friendly and about the race war the media is promoting. The harsh reality is that trust-worthy people are very hard to find these days and it’s a dog eat dog world out there. During an emergency, there will always be someone that wants to be let in, or ask you to help them. Helping a stranger during an emergency can turn into an ugly situation and this is one of the prepping mistakes you should avoid. You can politely decline or ignore them altogether. During a disaster, you should assume that everyone is out to get you. You have to play it smart and keep it to yourself until the situation passes. Of course that there will always be those “friendly freeloaders” you know, friends or family, and you won’t be able to look the other way. I’m not going to tell you how to deal with them because I’m in no position of doing that. Only you know what is best for you and for them. Maybe this is one of the prepping mistakes you have to make in the end…

Store it safe

You should think about how you store your supplies and more importantly where do you store your supplies. One of the most encountered prepping mistakes is to have all your supplies in an area that is easily accessible. The last thing you want is for someone to come over and see what you have. You should always put your supplies in an area where few people will go, such as your basement, attic or any other place known only by you. However, this is not all and from what I’ve talked with other preppers, most of them don’t have a Plan B for their supplies. Making prepping mistakes is also about not having a safe net when it comes to your supplies. In my articles I’ve written about a method I’ve invented, a method that will save your supplies. I’m talking about the “pantry decoy method” or how to have a few items out in the open or “not hidden very well”, while the rest of your supplies are well stashed. This will trick any home invaders and if you put up a good show, they will be convinced they’ve got all your supplies. Many readers told me about how they started to use this method as a plan B for their supplies. Maybe you should do the same if you want to keep your provisions safe. You should avoid making prepping mistakes when it comes to your supplies.

Don’t stop prepping

If you have a well-equipped pantry, if you have enough guns and ammo, and if overall you have enough supplies, you will think that you’re prepared enough and you will stop doing it or pay less attention to it. This is something that happens to all of us and it happens because we get that comfort feeling that we’ve done everything we can and we are good to go. Wrong! There’s always room for improvement and there’s always something you can do. You can build a generator, buy some more food invest in a piece of land for a bug out location, etc. You can even improve your home so that it can withstand an attack, strengthen your fence or build a panic room. No matter how much you think you’re ready, you’re probably not. There are many prepping mistakes you can do, but becoming numb and comfortable about your prepping actions should be avoided.
