One Year Supply for $5.00 a week for 2 people

If you will notice to your right we will continue to have a weekly plan of what to buy for 2 people to sustain life for 1 year. These ideas come from "Practical Preparedness" by Tina Monson

Each week take $5.00 and then buy the specified items for that week. Remember that some weeks will not use all of the $5.00 and some weeks will use more than $5.00. Plan to set aside $5.00 each week regardless. There are also a few weeks you will have nothing to buy, but set aside the money for those weeks as well. By the end of the 52 weeks you will have 700 lbs of wheat, 240 lbs of sugar, 40 lbs of powdered milk, 13 lbs of salt, 10 lbs of honey, 5 lbs of peanut butter, 45 cans of tomato soup, 32 cans of mushroom soup, 15 cans of tuna fish, 10 boxes of macaroni and cheese, 500 aspirin, 730 multiple vitamis, 6 lbs of dried yeast, and 6 lbs of shortening. This should sustain 2 people for 1 year.

**Remember to add $5.00 more for every 2 additional people in your family. You do not necessarily need to purchase these items in the week listed. If you find the items in Week 17 on SALE, buy them and move the current weeks items to Week 17.
