Don’t get mad at the messenger, but these food storage secrets may … well … just read and see. There are 5 secrets in all, plus a bonus.
People have medical insurance because they might get sick or injured, auto insurance because they might get in an accident, home insurance in case something happens to their home, life insurance because they could die, etc. And…don’t have food storage because they think they won’t need it? Now…how does that make sense?
Food storage secrets are all around. Just like this one.
Insider Secret #1: Scare Tactics
Preparedness is not an event, it’s a process.
Many businesses use scare tactics to motivate you to prepare. Wrong answer. If you don’t need your preparedness items for that scare you’ll regret your purchase and then figure, “what’s the use?” Remember Y2K? What about 2008’s food shortages and riots? People panicked and it cost ($$$) them dearly. Now, apathy has set in and many are unprepared should an actual emergency hit. You deserve better than scare tactics.
The only reason for scare tactics is to increase sales, but you won’t hear about that tactic from most businesses. You see…most people won’t buy home food storage except for disaster preparedness. But, it also makes sense for healthier living, eliminating extra trips to the store (saves you up to 60%), and peaces of mind. Yes…you do want to be prepared for emergencies, but not for a specific emergency (types of emergencies…yes), because when that emergency passes, you will wonder why you still have your food storage.
Insider Secret #2: The 3 Sisters: Quality, Service, and Price
Which do you want more? There is a struggle to balance these 3 food storage secrets with reality.
“With higher quality, comes higher prices.” Sometimes that is true, but more often than not it is just a ruse to charge more. Most food storage products have similar quality and are from the same suppliers; where only their packaging methods determine the true quality. Be sure their products and methods are backed by a guarantee.
Some companies offer FREE Shipping; a great service until you find out they hide the cost behind up to 70% higher prices. Then, when you go to a company that offers lower prices, you wonder why shipping isn’t free. Those who charge shipping can actually save you money. One way this can save you money is that many states do not charge sales tax on shipping unless, of course, it is part of the purchase price. That just means higher costs to you.
Another way being charged for shipping saves you money is that you are normally only charged for the actual costs. Many companies are tied directly to the shipper’s price quotes. If the shipping costs go down, you see the savings, but if the costs are bundled in, the business sees the profits. As our shipping costs go down, shouldn’t your costs go down too? Isn’t that the way it should be?
