Simple Survival Tips - Alternate Food Storage Methods

Many people use glass canning jars for their food storage items. Some keep rice and other dry grain products in them, as well as items that they have preserved or canned. If you don't have a room or area that can be dedicated to the purpose of food storage, the jars of food can be kept in the cardboard box they came in.

1.) This will protect them from the light.

2.) Help to cushion them and prevent accidental breakage of the jars.

3.) Help to prevent the jars from losing their seal and maintain their freshness.

4.) Allow easier storage in different areas due to the “stackability” of boxes.

When storing food items in this manner, be sure to properly label all the individual jars and the carton they are stored in with the proper dates and contents.

Staying above the water line!
