Bulk Food on the Cheap: LDS storehouses.
I know I posted this in a thread somewhere, but I thought I would give it its own.

If there's one thing the Mormons (Latter Day Saints) do well, it's prep. You CAN buy from their vast storehouses, and they are the nicest people ever.

Heck, the one I visited even taught me how to can my own stuff.

Here is a good write up on how to get into buying from the LDS;

Look at those prices! 25 pounds of sugar for 14 bucks, for example.

If you don't have an LDS storehouse near you, or simply don't want to go to one, you can also order staples online;

Six number 10 cans of quick oats, 21 bucks, for example.

Of course, buying bulk bags an canning your own is even cheaper, but still, for those of you looking to get started on preps and food storage, this is a pretty cost effective way to go, that takes no effort on your part.

Don't forget, if you're going to buy staples like this, you also need to know how to prepare them, and you're going to need a grain mill.

They have a good write up on how to get into long term food storage, and there is a lot of other good info on their site;

"For longer-term needs, and where permitted, gradually build a supply of food that will last a long time and that you can use to stay alive, such as wheat, white rice, and beans. These items can last 30 years or more when properly packaged and stored in a cool, dry place. A portion of these items may be rotated in your three-month supply."

Good luck and happy prepping!

Thats good info.

Also, not entirely on topic..Mormons are great people. I had the good fortune to get acquainted with several Mormon families when I was living in Western MT (my grad school advisor was a the Bishop of the local Mormon church), and even though I was (and am) an agnostic they were very friendly and willing to open their homes to me, even around the holidays. No religious pressure, and to be honest I do not ever even recall religion being discussed..

Any "Save a Lot" has prices pretty comparable to those IMO. Save a lot is where i get all my canned food.
The LDS has made a very good manual of preparedness. Even though there's a lot of religious comments in it and references to why you'd prepare per their religion, it still have a lot of very good information in it.
Actually, unless I am missing something it looks like their mail order choices are very limited, and most (if not all), are not in stock?

Yes mail order is limited, and they are currently out of stock.

The number one reason for their store houses is welfare of their church members. They don't make money off this stuff, and much of it goes to their poor for free.

If you want to buy staples from their site, you'll have to check often and jump on it when it's in stock.

Just a word about Grain mills for anyone that's considering it. You cannot go cheap with them, unless you like throwing money away. A good grainmill will cost over $400, better ones are much more. That's why we haven't gone to getting wheat berries yet, because we haven't had the cash to pony up for a decent mill.

I've been scouring CL for months looking for one, and haven't found one yet.
Their limited web store is in stock on all things right now.
