December Food Storage and Prep Handout

Get ready for winter by gathering a few inexpensive baking basics into your 3-month food storage supply, as well as some emergency power and light items for disasters.

December is the busiest month of the year, so I try to keep the gathering simple. It's also the month when winter storms happen which leads to power outages which leads to spoiled refrigerator foods. So be prepared. I remember the wind storm we had here in Farmington in 2011.

Here is the handout I shared with my LDS Relief Society sisters with a few baking basics to gather along with some long-term food storage. I already bought salt and baking soda, and next week I'll buy baking powder and cornstarch.

In case you aren't following the sales going on at your local LDS Home Storage Centers, here's what's on sale in December:

As we continue to gradually gather items along with our regular shopping, we prevent over-buying and become self-reliant. And allow the blessings of peace to come!

Have a wonderful Christmas season and keep Christ in Christmas.

Best wishes!

  1. Hi, Valerie, thanks so much for these food storage handouts. I have been using them personally for a while and would love to utilize them in my new calling as a counselor in RS. I noticed that the top of the first page has an incomplete sentence, just thought you would want to know. 😊

    1. Thanks, Annie. Glad you like the handouts. And yep, that incomplete sentence. 😂

  2. Hi Valerie, What do you recommend for a diabetic to store?

    1. Hi Cindy I finally figured out how to respond through my phone. 😁 My father is diabetic and so he has some canned stews and soups on his shelf. I'm sure my Heavenly Father understands our different health needs. Just do the best you can and blessings will follow. ❤️
