    Default Fluff* How long could your family live off the food in your house

    How long could your family live off what's in your house today


    If you pantry/fridge /freezer were at their regular full stage how long would your family live on it.
    As how much food do you hoard? Lol

    At the moment I think we could see out the year. I have between 40-50 meals in our upright freezer plus a pantry stocked to bursting. My Mum and I stocked up because of my new baby, I like to not have to cook beyond pulling something out of the freezer with a newbie in the family.

    Not long tbh. We have a small pantry and I have learnt not to overfill lol.

    I can easily get a month with top up dairy/fruit/veg.

    ETA. The full pantry I can get a month. As at today maybe 2? Lucky to be 3 weeks...

    Probably at least 3 weeks without having to be super creative and having meat most nights. After that, it'd be mostly beans, frozen veg, etc. with tomato over pasta, rice, quinoa, for probably another 2 weeks.

    Ok I am a nice shade of green. That's sounds like heaven.

    Today I could do 3 weeks easily.

    Normally it would it would be closer to 2 months worth.
    I really need to do a big cook up.

    It's pretty freaking awesome I have to say!! Usually we could probably eat well for a month.

    Right now? about 2 weeks if I'm super creative. We are due a food shop. Although.. We do have chickens and a small vegetable garden that is springing to life in some parts but dying off in others so that could potentially allow us to go longer.

    I reckon at least 3 weeks. I don't have any meals pre-prepared, but have a decent amount of meat in the chest freezer and a pantry full of staples.
