Don’t Panic! These 3 Simple Steps Will Have You Eating Safely In The Next Crisis
I asked my wife to make spaghetti for dinner yesterday. She went to the store to get a fresh box of dried pasta.
She told me that the shelves were mostly bare.
Perhaps the store was re-arranging but what if it’s a sign of something worse?
There are 3 tips that you can do to prepare.
Tip 1: Buy Canned And Dried Foods In Bulk
Perhaps you stocked up 2 years ago but now need to replenish. While you can continue to use your usual stores to buy from, you can also check out a new resource I learned about yesterday — restaurant supply sites!
Tip 2: Start Gardening
It can be easy to forget that one of the best ways to save money is to grow your own food. While a full-fledged outside garden can be a bit of an investment, there’s no need to get discouraged. Start small, and you’ll be surprised at how much you can save. Just a few potato plants in a 5-gallon bucket can yield a significant harvest.
Tip 3: Foraging
A final tip is to do what our ancestors did and forage for food.
This might conjure up thoughts of flannel-wearing bearded men hunting for odd-looking mushrooms or pretty women walking through a forest picking berries, many weeds in your yard are edible.
While you do need to learn to identify plants, this is a skill that you can learn. And you don’t need to know a lot of plants, a handful will be enough.
Bonus Tip 1: Install The Honey Extension
This extension will automatically apply any relevant discounts at partner sites such as Home Depot or Target. If you shop online, make sure to have Honey installed.
Bonus Tip 2: Combine Gardening With Foraging
You could grow wild edibles in your garden. And because many wild edibles (such as dandelions) are weeds they are often easier to grow than traditional plants.

Edible plants will often sprout next to toxic look-a-like plants.
You should never eat any wild plant unless you are 100% certain of its identification and are experienced enough to do so.
Only forage where you have permission.
And leave enough for others, including wildlife.
