Here are some bargain prep food-storage items I found last week: the last can of fat-free Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk, 10 ounce cans of Italian espresso in real cans with hard tops for $2.18 ($3.48 per pound), and 39 ounce cans of Chef Boyardee spaghetti w/meatballs for $2.15 (that's 4.5 generous servings @ 9 grams of protein and 12 of fat per). NONE of these has a BEST BEFORE date in 2012, the Spaghetti date is Jan 2014. Dang, that's the stuff of home preparedness kits -- edible cold and chocked with fat, carbs and protein for those grid-down moments. For $10 you could add real substance to your larder -- in this case a meal with sweet, creamed coffee. If you have some left-over biscuits and coconut, add a classic Eagle Brand dessert.
