And there you have it, the E&C Cantwell Storage Experience (so far). As I mentioned, I've not had any dramatic miraculous experiences as a result of keeping a food storage supply (yet).* I'm okay with that. The little conveniences that I experience are definitely enough for me. See, I save time and money by not having to run to the grocery store as often as I used to in my pre-storage days, and I almost never have the frustrating experience of being in the middle of a recipe and finding that I don't have all the ingredients to complete it.
But most importantly (for a worrier like me), I sleep better every night, knowing that we have a little extra stored away in case of something unexpected. Now that's what I call a miracle.
