In this video, I discuss the lifestyle and philosophy behind building and living off of a 3 Month Supply. This philosophy makes it easy to attain a 3 month supply and especially easy to keep it rotated.
The primary philosophy is to become used to thinking of your 3 Month Supply as your ‘grocery store’ and the actual grocery store as your warehouse. You go to the ‘grocery store’ to get your meals and you go to the ‘warehouse’ to stock up the grocery store.
Living this way makes a 3 Month Supply easy to keep up and live off. The approach I explain involves identifying 14 meals that your family will happily eat and breaking the ingredients down to the component parts for each meal. Once you’ve done that you multiply your ingredient list by 6 giving you 3 months worth of food.
