Another website Corinne got me excited about is called Shelf Reliance that sells the product Thrive, and is a site for emergency preparedness supplies. I’m a big believer in food and water storage, especially since we live in a very populated area with power outages and debilitating weather. I’ve learned too many times that when you are in a panic and in need of something at the grocery store, everyone else in town is there too wanting the same thing. Also, I like to keep enough food for my family on hand for a longer period of time (bulk food, canned goods, freeze-dried items). You never know if an outbreak might happen or you just can’t leave your house.
If you are going to store food for a family of five that would last 6 months, it can get expensive if you pay for it all at once. So I really like Shelf Reliance’s monthly pay-as-you-go program that allows families to build a customized food storage plan to meet their specific needs. You can set a monthly budget and receive monthly shipments tailored to your specific taste preferences. And the packaging is very attractive!
