Our fresh perspective on preparedness speaks to a spectrum of ages, income levels, and backgrounds. 

We value food security, ergonomic social and ecological sustainability and have a deep understanding of how technology can serve us – and when it doesn’t. 

Our articles and guides are written by industry experts and backed by in-depth research and analysis in all areas of food preparation, homesteading, and money-saving tips. 

At Modest Home Digs, we go beyond generalized consensus and easily-found food preservation and prep product specs to give you the most important facts to help you and your family manage a thriving home food pantry.

Our Home Food Pantry Expertise

We’ve preserved and used amazing food prep recipes from how to preserve tomatoes without canning, how to make a dollar go a long way with batched fresh and dry food shopping to how to can chicken meat and fish for best quality ready to eat meals.

Our pantry food storage know-how also means we’ve had the opportunity to test, examine and compare a wide variety of products for a million different uses. Our actual experiences inform our consumer advice, and we’re up on what’s new and current in the home food pantry.

 In our rapidly changing world, I would argue that every home needs a home food pantry preparedness resource that’s relevant to today’s lifestyles and concerns. After all, what worked for your mom may not be best for you.

 And that is evidenced in how food preservation technology in recent years have allowed ordinary folks like you and me to keep food longer effortlessly.

We also know that preserving food for long term use has been around for centuries long before canning or dehydrating tomatoes and other perishables came to town. 

So, while embracing new ways of preserving food for a rainy day, keep in mind that what’s new is not always better, so we’re not easily distracted by sparkly but useless gadgets. 

It seems like any appliance can be connected to Bluetooth, controlled via an app, or set to run itself. There are times where these features are highly valuable, but sometimes you’re just paying for complicated technology that you probably won’t use. 

Home food pantry preparedness is about you and your goals for starting to prepare unforeseen emergencies that could risk a shortage of supply of your family’s favorites or saving money.

We layout the planned way to achieve such goals, what tools are best for long term food storage prepping in an easy-to-understand format, and give you a frank analysis of whether or not you should really care.

 Living smarter sometimes means saving your money and going for the classic version.
