If you have a lot of food in storage, it can be confusing when you want to make a meal during a crisis. You won’t remember what you have or where to find it. You also won’t know if something needs to be replenished if you use it before a crisis hits. You can make this all much easier by creating a list of everything you have.
Simply write down all of the items that you have, along with their amounts. Update the list accordingly. Do not put the list on a computer, since it could go down in an emergency. Instead, keep a paper log of this. Put the log with the food items as you can easily access it whenever you use the food.
This list will help you out a great deal during an emergency. With that in mind, be sure to keep up with it.
