Most prepared people (like you and me) realize the fragility of our current food system. If we need something, we just go to the store and buy it.
But what happens if something happens to any one of the many systems that those grocery stores are depending on?
Credit card processing... commercial credit... electricity... logistics and delivery... etc.
If things go down for only a few days, you would have a large population (who are completely dependent on the systems working perfectly), who are now hungry, and would probably do anything to put themselves first.
It costs you very little to have a few weeks of dry-packaged goods in a back storeroom, just ready in case of emergency.
Box of pasta or bag of rice? Sounds good... right?
Beware - most pre-packaged foods have an expiration date, and will start to rot, go stale, rancid, etc. When exposed to oxygen, light, moisture (from humidity or package leaks), or potentially punctures, this will only expedite the spoiling process.
Imagine needing to rely on the emergency food you had stored, only to find mold growing over all of it that you didn't realize...
Mylar food bags have long been the go-to favorite for prudent-minded people, who don't want to be dependent on someone else to take care of them, or give them handouts if something happened.
These 3 free bags are easy to fill, and with a tiny bit of practice, are easy to seal with any household clothes iron or hair straightener.
We even have a great article about How to Seal Mylar Food Bags for you to reference.
It's always been our mission here at Backdoor Survival to give like-minded people the resources and knowledge the need to take care of themselves and their loved ones in an emergency situation.
We absolutely HATE feeling helpless or dependent on anyone else to take care of us, so want others to be able to have the same freedom and peace of mind, knowing their loved ones are taken care of.
