Well it has been a month now since my wife went shopping for food for us. Living off our storage was easier than we thought. I credit this to the fact that my wife has been rotating grains and legumes into our diet on a regular basis. With a few exceptions, we eat what we store.
The biggest thing that we noticed, while we had plenty of canned and dehydrated vegetables a few fresh ones would be nice. We will have to increase the size of our garden.
Some of our friends that tried it ran into problems. One of the biggest was time; they discovered it takes more time to cook from scratch. Others ran out of specific items and found weaknesses in their storage plans.
My wife kept a list of all the items she used and we will now check this against our inventory to see if we spot any weaknesses. In particular, anything we are using faster than expected.
Overall, it was a good exercise and I would recommend that you try it.
