Food & Supplies, Medicines and Sundries - A One Year Plan

In 1996 I took a homesteading course at Idaho State University in which we received as part of our handouts a ONE YEAR PLAN on how to set aside all food, supplies, medicine and sundries a family would need in a year.

Here is the Table of Contents:
•Essentials of Home Storage
•How to Store
•Powdered Milk and Cheese
•Dehydrated Foods
•Home Canning
•Water Storage
•Soaps and Cleaning Supplies
•Sewing Needs
•Emergency Pack
•First Aid

Highly recommended:
