Hi everyone. My wife and I are brand new at this whole prepper idea. We live in Utah. I am currently searching for companies that sell long-term food storage (e.g. Wise Company, Shelf-Reliance, etc). They seem very expensive and we would start with about $600 to spend. Would you recommend buying from these companies or just buying bulk rice, beans, oil, tuna fish, etc? If the latter, what would your essential must-haves be? This would be geared for preparedness (e.g. loss of job, natural disaster, etc) and not so much survivalist. We would also want to be able to put it away and not necessarily keep track of rotating it every year. Thank you!!!!
