All the research that I have done, urges some canned food. Canned food doesnt have the shelf life that stapes like hard red wheat have but they are convenient, and you can store things that otherwise you may not be able to or may have trouble storing.

When storing cans it is vital that you use the FIFO (First In, First Out) rule. The first can you purchased is the first can you use. Always newer cans go to the back of the line. There are a lot of  great sites out there that offer you ways to store your cans (Check out the links page for a few examples) with this method without making it a confused mess. The true Jew in me doesn’t want to spend 400 dollars on these systems and therefore have had D’s shop helper build me a shelf system that I found on the internet. It does help when you have men who are handy around (Or women I guess, but I prefer to ask one of the menfolk to do it. And yes, I said menfolk, ha!)
