Initially, We made a list and began with the "use one, buy two" concept.
After we first got started we purchased two Mountain House 72 Hour Kits.
Each Mountain House “Just in Case…” 72 Hour Kit contains the following classic Mountain House meals:
● Breakfasts: 1) Granola with Milk and Blueberries, 2) 2 Scrambled Eggs with Bacon
● Lunch and Dinner Entrees: 1) 2 Beef Stroganoff with Noodles, 2) 2 Chicken Teriyaki with Rice, 3) 1 Rice & Chicken, 4) 1 Pasta Primavera
Need I mention, that even with purchasing these prepared 72 hour kits, you will still need to have water on hand. But, if you are following the plan here you will already have at least three days supply of water.
Now, you don't have to start with purchasing a 72 hour kit, you can plan out meals for three days for each person. Just think simple, easy...
Food: Tuna, chicken, crackers, mayo. I recommend you actually set this aside so you don't eat through it & not have it for an emergency.
While you are planning this stage, obviously you want to include infant formula or baby food (do you need to store extra water for your formula?) and diapers if you have a baby.

Don't forget your furbabies and other animals. Pet food and extra water for them.
For both of these, you might just commit to keep enough extra on hand. Before preparing we would just get dog food when we ran out. Now, we actually have extra stored.
Next the Third Step...

Also I participate in Amazon's associate program, where I receive a small percentage of recommended purchases. I only recommend things that I have used and like. There is no additional charge to you.
