Have you ever wondered just what is a THRIVE Home Store?
A THRIVE Home Store is just a well stocked pantry of THRIVE and other products that your family likes, and you use in your everyday cooking. It’s like having your own grocery store in your cupboards.
Why should I want a THRIVE Home Store?
By building a good THRIVE Home store you can eliminate those little extra trips to the store, costing you valuable time and gas AND eliminating all those impulse buys saving your money, that we already learned about here!
One of the best reason for having a THRIVE Home Store is PEACE OF MIND — that’s worth a lot in our world today! With a fully stocked THRIVE Home Store, you and your family will be able to eat normally if bad weather hits or if other events occur that disrupt your life. This is so important emotionally. When events outside of your control disrupt your life, you will instinctively hold on to whatever and as much “normal” as you can. And if you have a good Home Store and it provides the “normal” everyday meals for your family, this will be a BIG anchor of “normalcy” to help your family deal better with the stress of the “not normal” things that are out of your control — whether that lasts for just a day or two or longer.
Last winter, we had an ice storm that knocked out our power for 4 days. It became a fun adventure when we didn’t have to worry about what to eat. We had no trouble with rehydrating. We just brought up a couple of our waterbricks and set them on the counter and we were good to go — to cook or wash our hands or get a drink.
How is a THRIVE Home Store different from Home Storage?
A THRIVE Home Store is food you use every day. Then after you get a good foundation, you take advantage of the the THRIVE Monthly Sales and you will naturally build your Home Storage, without spending any extra money to do it! You’ll be better prepared and because you use it everyday, there won’t be any learning curve and everyone will be used to seeing those cans opened, used and love eating out of them!
While a good Home Storage program should be rotated and replenished, my experience has been that most people that have a Home Storage mindset, just tuck it away in the basement for an emergency and don’t want to dig into it unless they absolutely have to.
I experienced this first hand when we got ourselves “prepared” for Y2K. Remember that? Well, we went through our Home Storage in 2012 and took 3 pickup truck of expired and no longer good food to the dump! Yes, I did said 3 pickup truck loads – talk about a waste of money. That will never happen to me again!
