12 Monthly Emergency Prep Lists

These 12 monthly emergency prep lists will help you gather food storage and emergency supplies gradually, so you don't get overwhelmed or blow your budget. This systematic approach to gathering items year-round is doable. I spend about $20 - $25 on food items each month per family member. All other items cost more.

By incorporating a Four-Step Approach to Home Storage taught by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, you'll gather a 3-month supply of food, some water, and an emergency fund. THEN you will gather long-term staple foods like wheat, rice and beans. I've added my own home storage goals, preparedness goals, equipment goals and a weekly inventory.

  1. Each list is for 1 adult. Choose things you can afford to do or have time to do each week.
  2. Multiply amounts by # of family members, and adjust for children, medical needs and food allergies. For instance, you could store half the amount of breakfast cereal for a young child as an adult.
  3. Watch for sales and gather a week at a time to gradually build up your supplies.
  4. Do step 4 after you complete Steps 1, 2 and 3.
  5. Choose what works best for your circumstances.  
  6. LDS = items available to purchase at an LDS Home Storage Center.
Every step forward is a step forward. You CAN do it!

Best wishes!
