Mountain house meals?

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

@Darth_Algar Good quality freeze dried emergency meals. Very filling and tasty that can last up to thrity years before expiring. You can Google Mountain House meals and have a wide variety of breakfast and supper meals delivered to you. From $5 – $15 per serving. Good for emergencies or long term storage.

$5–15 a serving? Jesus. You know how many staples, that could provide several meals each (and have a long shelf-life), you could get with that money?

@Darth_Algar I don’t like rice most beans. I am just
still learning how to food shop. The novelty of being a prepper is still a little active in my life. I liked the idea not to have to leave my apartment and getting every thing delivered. I still have the novelty for other foods like Skip the Dishes.
I will get normal food when I get paid in the 28th.
I don’t know what staples I could buy.
I am currently exploring Amazon prime pantry. I bought bulky items that I have difficulty going to the store with like bilk paper towels and papet plates and toilet paper.

@Darth_Algar I might make a bean and ground meat vegetable stew in the crock pot after I get paid in October 28th. Shopping is fun, and Is a hobby. Not just shopping online but at Safeway and Superstore too.

Things like peanut butter, rice, pasta (and the tomato sauce to go with it), oatmeal (or Cream of Wheat, Malt-O-Meal), just to think of a few items that are filling, can be gotten cheaply and have long shelf-stable lives.

Actually now that I think about it I know exactly what that Mountain House stuff is. This lady I know always keeps a stock of those to take when she and her boyfriend go on their hiking/camping excursions along the Appalachian Trail, or Denali National Park or wherever the hell else they go. She’s loaded (financially speaking) though. Those things are expensive. I mean it’s your money, of course, and you’re perfectly free to spend it however you wish. But, in my view, those might not be the most sound use of funds for someone living on a fixed income.
