my method on prepping canned meat was created by stonyman002
A year ago I didn't have a lot of canned meat in my preps. Had some freeze dried and a full freezer, plus I have a place that I can go hunting with hundreds of wild hogs and I can and do go out and shoot a wild hog when ever the mood strikes me. But if I lost my freezer and could not make it out to where I hunt then I would have very little meat. A year ago there were early indicators of a possible meat shortage. Through out the plandemic there were many more such indicators. I decided on 4 meats to add to my preps. Tuna ( the least expensive), chicken, ham and roast beef (the most expensive). I knew that prepping on a budget I could not pick up the amount I wanted at one time. To start with I picked up 10 cans each to have a variety, around 90 dollars worth. Then I started with the most expensive roast beef and worked my way down to the tuna.

My thinking on starting with the most expensive was this. As the shortage got closer prices would start going up. I recently noted a 30 percent price jump is canned vegetables, so lets use a 30 percent jump in meat prices for conversation purposes. If a 3.00 can of roast beef jumped 30 percent a can, that would be a 90 cents a can jump. If a 70 cent can of tuna jumped 30 percent a can that would be 21 cents a can. And I felt it would be easier for me to absorb 21 cents a can to meet my set goal rather than having to absorb 90 cents a can.

Yesterday I picked up the last 20 cans cans of tuna to reach the goal I set a year ago on the four meats. Even though I am now comfortable with where I am on my preps. I will continue to pick up a few cans of meat each week to add to my preps and for every day use. As long as it is priced within reach.

Even though prices stayed consistent over the last year I still think my logic was good on reaching my set goal. I do not think prices will stay consistent over the next year. If you are a new prepper, think about what your doing and think about where you want to be in your preps in a month and in a year. Set obtainable goals so you don't get discouraged and do the best you can with the resources you have available.
