Save Money: 25 Shelf Stable Products Lifetimes and Storage Information

Hello Friends!  Do you like to plan things, some things, all things?  The older I get the more I plan. This former hoarder sitting in the craft room surrounded by unused supplies is thinking and planning. 

Spring is here summer is right around the corner and there are so many things I want to make happen. Do you wish sometimes there were ten of you?  I do.  

We removed an above-ground pool from the yard leaving a weed-free circle. This gardening lady sees a blank slate! I'm excited!  🤔Contemplating what to plant there. I'm spending a little money for an immediate display of floral colors. A splurge for fun. 

You know the old saying, "When life gives you lemons make lemonade". 

Back to the topic at hand: 

My grandparents had massive food storage inside and outside.  As a child, I enjoyed raiding their pantry and outside looking at the meats hanging in the smokehouses. It was fun visiting and watching them get the potatoes they'd stored under the mounds of dirt to save them!  Talk about being self-sufficient they really were. 

Read on for some shelf-stable product guidelines and their longevity. Saving money in the long run.
