I spent all morning figuring out the prices, weights, and calories of the food items for our 72 Hour Kit food packs. It's done! So I had to update my post from March 24th. Read it for greater details. I included a PDF file showing our do-it-yourself 72 Hour food pack details, and an Excel file for those of you who want to use my spreadsheet, but add items of your own. I followed suggestions from "It's Time to Plan Not Panic" by Barbara Salsbury regarding item weight, calorie and cost. Such a great little book.
Now I am ready to go shopping next week! The reason I say next week is because I've already spent my food storage budget this month, so I will be getting items in April.
More 72 Hour kit ideas are on the sidebar of my blog.
