Works For Me - Tracking Food Storage


Since I'm chained to my computer today because of work, I am being very blogful. It makes me happy. And since it's been a long time since I did WFMW, I thought I would rejoin the throng.

I found this great site - Track My Food Storage - where I can input my food storage amounts and my food storage goals and get food storage organized! It keeps track of expiration dates so rotating becomes easier. A somewhat limited account is available for free, which is what I'm using right now. But I will probably upgrade to the Premium, which is $15/year (which is like $1.25 a month or $.04 a day) where I can input an unlimited amount and do some more analysis and such. I have a very smart and cute DH who has been telling me he can create a program/adjust his company's software to do the same thing, but DH is super super super busy with his new position, and this is already ready to go! I highly recommend it!

I'm Bob Hotaling and I've created an Excel spreadsheet to track my food storage by best by date as well as the five main food groups, and the summary sheet tells me how long my food storage will last for a selected number of people. I've been using it for over a year and it's absolutely successful! I can also use my spreadsheets as a shopping list for items I've used from my food storage. If you or your readers can use Excel and would like a copy of the spreadsheet, just request it by an email to me at preppingpatriot@gmail.com with "Spreadsheet" as the subject. I've received help from so many people when it comes to my food storage and prepping, that I'm just trying to pay it forward at this point.
