    Yea, we could totally be fine with protein powder and frozen fruit in my freezer. I live in MI, so we'd never be stranded more than 5 days .

    Well we don't shop at Costco. I found it is more expensive than other stores here.

    I buy staples once a month and try to have 20 lbs of flour, sugar, beans, and rice on hand.

    We go to the store weekly for fresh fruit and vegetables (we do have a garden, but it is not producing yet), milk (we go through about 6 gallons a week) and bread. (Do do bake some of my own, but if could not keep up with the amount they eat).

    Meat is another issue, it is expensive so I don't have a ton on hand. We have started buying pork in bulk and making our own sausage. (Save and seal and freeze) I do try and stock up when it is on sale, so I might have 4-5 flats of chicken in the freezer b/c it was less than $1.00 a lbs.

    There is very little package food here, and just a few can items.
