I'll be the first to admit that my (our) long-term food storage preps could use a little more finesse.

Communications? (you're kidding, right?)
Uh, here, sir....kinda.
We have several cases of MRE's, a couple of cases of various canned meats, a couple of cases of soups and such, and a LOT of those fancy freeze-dried "camping" type meals that I bought when I was single, and before I knew better.
I've considered buying some of those "#10 cans" of stuff from the various purveyors of such, but what do you DO with all that stuff once you have it?
Lacking a plan on how to sort/organize/store/use it, I did what most people do.
WELL.....I stumbled across this article over at Mr. Rawles' place, and I'm stoopified at how simple it is.
You make up a week's worth of balanced meals (7 breakfast, 7 lunch, 7 dinner) out of all the stuff you've accumulated, and pack it away into "A Week In A Bucket", and store the buckets until needed.
Makes a pretty good grab-and-go, eat-for-a-week bug-out item, too.
Remarkably simple, and an excellent example of the kind of clear-headed, logical thinking that can save your butt when TSHTF.
