From the moment I left home and went to college, my life was quickly taken over by that all-encompassing word, “budgeting.” Sure, it took me a while to actually figure out what it meant, and then even longer to start following one, but it did happen eventually.
What I learned about budgeting during my college years was that if I wanted something, I’d have to save up for it. I also learned that, even with diligent saving, some things had to be paid for in installments.
The same thing applies to food storage. You want a year supply of food, but you can’t quite afford to pay for it all at once. What do you do?
The answer is simple: Count your change and find a plan with monthly payments that fits your needs.
Yup, we’ve got year-supply emergency food storage plans that work just like tuition. Three great things about both education and food storage is that, over time, both increase in value, both add to future security, and the acquisition of both bring a sense of accomplishment and peace of mind. And that’s important for any investment.
In fact, investing in emergency food storage is also like investing in general. As the years go by, your money becomes worth more and more. Well, your food might not be worth a whole lot more (although in just the last 10 years, freeze-dried diced pineapple has gone up $10 a can, so there’s that), but the investment is all about having it when you need it. Investing in food storage will mean you will have food available when you otherwise wouldn’t have any.
If you’re planning on investing in an emergency food storage, you’re going to need a financial plan. It kind of defeats the purpose to spend more than you can afford on your emergency preparedness items. However, by choosing one of our Prep-As-You-Go-plans that works for you, you will be able to stock up on your storage while still remaining above the red.
But say you’ve invested in a plan, but other life expenses surprise you. That’s ok! You’re not obligated to tough it out with your Prep-As-You-Go plan. You can cancel at any time. Again, we wouldn’t want you to hurt yourself financially all in the name of preparedness! And just in case you have a tendency to forget about your monthly shipments, we’ll remind you a week before each shipment goes out. That way, you can add extra items to your order for no extra shipping costs (ie. still free shipping), or have a panic attack when you realize you forgot to cancel this month (don’t worry, there’s still time to call us up and cancel)!
Having an emergency food supply is important, but being able to budget for one is just as important. We’re people too, and we understand that. We’ve been doing this for a very long time, so we know the best ways to help you get the most out of your hard-earned money.
