    Default is there anything you wont or dont stockpile?

    i have been stockpiling for 5 years. i seem to stick to the same things to stockpile but at times it gets boring. besides fresh fruits and vegetables, what don't you stock pile?

    LOL! I have done the mayo too.

    DH and I were only together about a year and we were living day to day, hotdogs was a gourmet meal at that point. times were really hard. I had opened a brand new jar of mayo and the compressor goes out on the fridge. so I froze the mayo thinking it will be ok. when we thawed it out it was so gross, I didn't eat mayo for a very long time.

    interesting about the mayo. When i was stockpiling it was mainly already canned foods. I am interested to hear what everyone posts here.

    Can you dehydrate food in the oven, or do you need a special appliance for that?

    I learned the hard way - don't stockpile anything that hasn't been tried and approved by your family! Just because it was free - didn't mean a good deal when it came to Velveeta Shells and Cheese. Nobody at my house would eat them. They were donated to the food pantry.
