After you have looked at the lists on this topic area you can see that all of these items can be purchased at the grocery store or wearhouse stores in good amounts. I would suggest you do this sooner than later. And again I state purchase only items that you normally eat or would use to make bread, cakes, brownies, etc.

There are other outlets that have this food packaged in #10 cans sealed that will keep for years if kept at 70 degress or lower. You will find the names of these companies in this section at Food Storage Tips.

Again any questions please ask.

Is it ok to make a recommendation?

In the winter of 05/06 when Bird Flu was big in the news, I found this site and began prepping.  I went nuts with canned goods, and over the next few years, many of them began expiring, and a lot got tossed.  I was terrible about keeping them rotated.
 
I felt uncomfortable that my supply had dwindled, even though bird flu was no longer in the news, I didn't like feeling "unstocked."  So when we got a large tax refund this year - just a few months ago - I placed a large order from Honeyville.  The stuff came really fast, only $5 shipped, and they messed up one item.  When I contacted them, they said to keep the mistaken item and they'd send the correct one out right away.  So good customer service too.
 
I'm so glad I thought to do that now that flu is in the news again.  Now I only need to make sure I get enough water stocked.  I'm still really lacking there.
 
Anyway, just wanted to recommend Honeyville if that's ok.  There used to be a coupon code for members of this site, but it was expired when I tried it.  If you sign up for their newsletter, they send out coupon codes every few months.

nettie4263, I too have gone to the long term food. Honeyville is very good. I also have gotten tired of watching the dates on cans.

I have a great site for water storage: Cube4water. They are 5 gal cubes that fold and stack. Just google Cube4water and you can find the site. I purchased the emergency pack which allows you to stack the filled cubes into a very small space.

Good Luck!

I apologize if it has been mentioned elsewhere. I went with a group of people to our local LDS stake cannery. They welcomed us non-mormans and helped us can #10 cans of lots of good stuff. They provided the cans, the lids, the oxygen absorbers, the labels, the food and the equipment. All we had to do was stand assembly line style and prepare the cans for sealing. Not only was it fun, these cans are good for 30 years. I know there are canneries all over the US, just ask your favorite LDS person. BTW, price per filled can was around $5+/-. Couldn't get a better deal if I tried. And those folks are very nice people. D
