The $5 a Week Food Storage Plan

, / 9164 8

Before I share with you a simple plan on how to get a year’s worth of food storage while spending only $5 a week, I want to say a big thank you!

There was a huge outpouring of support for my book and so many people posted amazing reviews on Amazon. You have no idea how much it means to me and I’m grateful for everyone’s help. You have been a huge blessing to me.

As corny as it sounds, I think of the people I teach as family and share with you the same information I share with my wife and other family members to make sure we’re all as safe as possible. So again, thank you so much.

All right, that’s enough sensitivity and sappiness for now. Let’s get down to business for this week.

You know that I’m a big believer in having a year’s supply of food storage. Of course, it will come in handy in the event of a blackout or natural disaster or some type of extreme crisis scenario.

But also, a year’s supply of food can help you if you happen to lose your job and money is tight. (This happened to a cousin of mine who was out of work for almost a year and had to rely on his food storage to feed his wife and four kids.)

Also, if you have a year’s supply of food you’re in a position to help others. If the power goes out and the utility company says it’s going to be two weeks before it’s restored, you can help your neighbors who might not have two weeks of food to survive.

With that being said, the thought of building up a year’s worth of food can certainly be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be.

That’s why I have attached a two-page document to this article that shows you exactly how to build up your food storage. You build it up on a weekly basis spending only about $5 a week so it makes it simple to acquire all of the food you need.

Some weeks you’ll spend less than $5 and some weeks you’ll spend a little more so save any leftover money from the “less” weeks to go toward the “more” weeks.

If you don’t have food storage yet, I highly encourage you to print out this document today and start on the plan this week. (Week 47 should say 10 pounds and I believe week 48 is 2 cans of mushroom soup.)

I can’t emphasize enough that in the unpredictable world we live in you do not want to get caught with zero food storage and this plan makes it easy enough for anyone to never have to find themselves in that position. (You can easily download the document, which is right after the mailbag. It’s titled Food Storage for a Year. Just click on it and you’ll see the PDF.)

Here is my example food storage for a year guide.


The Mailbag

From Michael M: Jason, I have (a million) couple questions. I LOVE the quick videos that were available online, and would love to see many more. Is there ANY possibility of having a live class in Chicago? Certainly, there are many interested individuals in a city this large that could fill a weekend class. If so, count me in!!

A: The only live classes I have left in 2015 are in Las Vegas and Dallas. I don’t currently have any courses on the schedule in Chicago but I do a lot of private courses throughout the year for those that are able to get a group of 15 or more together.

From Chris F: Hey quick question. I’m getting a dash cam for my car and there are so many to choose from. Which ones you would suggest and/or recommend? Thanks and congrats again on all your success.

A: Something like this one here (That takes you to the Amazon page) is a good option to consider and has the features you want in a dash cam.

From Paul K: How long will I have access to your online materials?

A: Once you purchase online items such as 2-Second Survival or the Retirement Gun Guide, you get access for life.

From Andrew R: Can you tell me if the books at the website – will come in hardcover, paperback, or kindle?

A: If you get my new book at you’ll get it in hardcover (plus you get $763 in free gifts.)

From Richard H: For home defense would you use a shotgun or a rifle, which is better do you think?

A: I would use a rifle. A rifle can hold 30 rounds, whereas a shotgun might hold 7 shells with an extended magazine tube. Plus, a rifle has much better sights than an off-the-shelf shotgun.

Stay safe,

    When you say to buy 100 lbs of wheat, what exactly do you mean and where can i get it?

    • Jason Hanson says:


      If you don’t have a grinder to grind the wheat into flour, just go ahead and get flour. However, if you do have a grinder, you can get wheat on Amazon.

      Stay Safe!

    I find it interesting that you recommend a rifle over a shotgun for home defense. All the other experts I have talked to and the the research I have done point to a shotgun because, with 00 buckshot, you don’t have to be dead on accurate to stop an intruder. They all have told me the other issue with hand guns and rifles is they take longer to master well enough for home defense and are harder to use. I respect your opinion greatly, so can you please talk on this issue more? I recently bought my first gun, shotgun, based on all this.

      Hey Karl,

      I’m just cleaning up some old, missed comments and it looks like yours is one that got overlooked. Jason Hanson recommends both shotguns and rifles, depending on the situation. The whole idea that “you don’t have to be as accurate” is misleading at best, and irresponsible at worst. While a shotgun with 00 will spread out, increasing your chance of hitting a vital area, it’s not really going to spread out that much at the close range of most home encounters. The truth is that most people hear this and think that it means you don’t need to aim. This is dangerous in that if you ever shoot without carefully aiming, you run a very high risk of missing your target and potentially hitting another person behind your target, even in another room. That risk is always there in a real two-way live-fire as the target is moving and it’s impossible to know where they will be when that trigger is pulled. But not aiming is irresponsible and increases that risk significantly.

      A rifle, on the other hand, is easier to handle and re-engage. For an inexperienced shooter, a 12 gauge may knock them to the ground and put them at higher risk. Even a 20 gauge has enough kick to make a smaller framed person lose their footing. Something like a .223 won’t cause those issues and the shooter will be able to re-engage if they miss or don’t stop the intruder with the first shot.

      Both have advantages and disadvantages. It all boils down to what you can handle and what you train with.

    I like the list, however I am wondering if you have recipes that go along with it? I’m not sure I know what to do with that much wheat??? 🙂


  • DadHasADD says:

    Great post! And I love your book! One question on the food-storage list. When it says to buy wheat, does it mean “wheat flour.” If not flour, where is the best place to buy wheat economically? I haven’t noticed wheat in the grocery stores here out East. Thank you!

    • Jason Hanson says:

      I put wheat on this list because I have a grinder to make flour out of wheat. However, if you don’t have a grinder, then flour is what I meant.

      Stay Safe!
