This part of the discussion also talks about buying meats in bulk and where you might find it. We also suggest the use of coupons to help you save money and get items for pennies or even free for your prepping! The next section discusses freeze-dried foods and their approximate shelf life. We also explain where these products can be purchased and the different types of items that are offered freeze-dried.
