Emergency Prep Using Self Storage

emergency prep, storage

Apocalypse, end of the world, national crisis, or natural disaster. No matter what you call it, you need to be prepared for it. People without plans and without the necessary supplies often do the worst when it comes to one of these situations. Many households do not have adequate space to fully prepare for a disaster and use that for an excuse to be ill-prepared. Well, by choosing a self storage unit, you no longer need to make excuses. This time has shown all of us that a little prep will go a long way.

Emergency Prep with Self Storage

Having any kind of plan is better than none, be prepared.

Set a Budget

There isn’t a need to buy all your supplies at once. In fact, we encourage you not to. Get set up with a storage unit, then slowly start to accumulate your survival supplies. You can start and finish a survival supply for as little as $5 per week. A storage unit can be rented for much cheaper than you think and most self storage facilities offer long term rates.

Start Accumulating

Now is the time to start preparing your supplies. Each time you go to the grocery store, spend $5 extra on supplies for your unit. This equates to roughly $260 for the whole year. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but you will be amazed at how much food that actually is. This is what spending around $5 a week gets you after a year.

  • 500 Pounds of Wheat
  • 100 Pounds of Sugar
  • 40 Pounds of Powdered Milk
  • 12 Pounds of Salt
  • 10 Pounds of Honey
  • 5 Pounds of Peanut Butter
  • 45 Cans of Tomato Soup
  • 15 Cans of Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 24 Cans of Tuna
  • 15 Cans of Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 21 Boxes of Macaroni and Cheese
  • 500 Aspirin
  • 1000 Multi-Vitamins
  • 6 Pounds of Yeast
  • 6 Pounds of Shortening
  • 12 Pounds of Macaroni

Talk about amazing. All this food is easy to store, doesn’t spoil, and will keep you fueled through any survival situation.
