Choose But Choose Wisely
Nothing is worth the money you paid for it, if you don't use it. For example...
Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) have earned a reputation for implementing food storage programs in their homes.* One lady, a member of the Church, told the story of going to her local health food store to see about purchasing some wheat for her storage. The owner of the store, who knew her, chided her for wasting her money. Then the storekeeper explained the reason for the comment. Most of the Mormons she knew followed the expert advice they received and added wheat to their food storage, but, having added it, they never used it. That, she felt, was a total waste.
The customer explained that she did indeed use the wheat from her storage, but she had to admit that many of her church friends were guilty as charged. They did have wheat in their food storage, and it just sat there. What's worse, even if they did decide to use it, they didn't know how. And worse than that, even if they did someday learn how to do it, they lacked the food storage tools that would enable them to use it.
The point being made, of course, is that if you are going to invest your money in something like food storage, make sure that investment bears interest. Make sure that you are getting or producing food that you will actually use. Make sure that the food storage appliances you purchase do more than just sit in their boxes.
Those, at least, are the recommendations that we at Store-It Foods would make.
