Food Storage

We have been taught about food storage for as long as I can remember. For the past few days I have been trying to figure it all out. Don't get me wrong, we have had a food storage for about a year now. I just have to figure out how to use it. See, we stocked up on foods that could keep us alive, yet we don't have foods that we like to eat in it. So here we are at the end of the year, and looking at my food storage I am seeing that a lot of my foods are going to be expiring soon. How do you keep and use your food storage? What do you do to keep your storage stocked? I found a couple of great web pages that I have to peruse through, but I am anxious to learn all I can. Look to the right column of my blog and I have three or four different places you can check out for help on food storage. Thus far my favorite one is safleygatheredin.blogspot.com. Good luck with yours and all your New Year's resolutions!

Two very important things:
1 - Only buy food you like to eat and would eat normally. For instance, my family eats more rice then oats, so we buy a lot of rice.
2 - Since you're buying stuff you like, buy a case, lot, can, whatever of what you have that you want for dinner, put it in the storage, and grab the oldest can and use that to cook the dinner... Forced rotation so it's always fresh that way!
