My name is Charisse and this is my family - the Merrill family.
Custom Plans got started after my sister in law gave me 13 bottles of BBQ sauce to add to the 20 cans of powdered milk I already had in my food storage. Guess what? All of it just sat on my shelf - unused.
I realized this wasn’t food storage. This was a waste of space.
I started thinking about food storage differently. I was determined to build a food storage that worked FOR me, not against me. I wanted my food storage to be one which we consistently ate from, rotated, and could keep building on a budget.
That was 8 years ago, and I made many mistakes - I bought too much food - food we never ate - or were even willing to try. (Can you relate?).
I wasted time and money.
But I learned. And one step I did take was to create a way to build custom food storage plans for others who wanted a healthy, cost efficient food storage.
