Simply Savvy Mama

Food storage is like an insurance. Insurance against a job loss, natural disaster, illness, and more. Having 30-60 days worth of food stored up can give you a peace of mind during trying times. 

When you are stocking up your food storage supply, it is important to take advantage of sales. Here are some tips on how to shop sales for food storage.

This will help you save money and use up items before they go bad. When you plan your meals, you’re also keeping your household from wasting food.

Plan Your Food Storage Around Sales

Store What You Eat

While not the most hard and fast rule, it’s better to store what you eat, and eat what you store.


Buy In Bulk

This can help you save money in the long run, but make sure you have the space to store everything. Sam’s Club and Costco are great options for shopping for food in bulk.


Check The Clearance Aisle

This is a great place to find deals on food. Many stores will put perfectly good canned or bagged food on a markdown, simply because of dents in cans, or minor tears in bags.


Check Best Buy Dates

When buying food, try and get the longest best buy dates you can for the longest storage.


Compare Prices

Different stores have different sales, so it is worth it to compare and find the best deal.  There are also many websites and apps that can help you do this.
