Food Storage Items to Shop for in December

By November 29, 2010 No Comments

My December food storage purchase suggestions include some additional baking goods, cold medicines, and a few paper products. Because your focus is on Christmas shopping, I will keep this list simple. I change items every month to help you rotate food storage purchases so you won’t end up with a lopsided food storage supply. Also, I’ve been following the seasonal sales and tell you the cheapest place to buy certain items.

If you can afford to splurge, December may be a good month to buy an electric wheat grinder/mill. Watch for sales. Mine is an old wooden Magic Mill and I’m not ready to change. But based on a survey from my readers last year, 47% liked L’Equip Nutrimill Grain Mill (retails $290), and 27% liked the WonderMill (retails $280). Right now both are on sale at Amazon.com for $239.95 and the shipping is free! Make sure on check-out that you check the box morked Free Super Saver Shipping. If you click on the ad on the right side of my blog page, and purchase, I will receive credit. Thanks.
