    No, I'm nestled pretty deeply in the suburbs. If I want to buy food or go to work, I have to drive to crowded markets.

    As far as I can tell, I don't have agoraphobia.

    A natural food store or cooperative would have what you're looking for - if they don't they can order it.

    You are looking for non instant dry milk - carnation is instant.
    This site has some good info:Food Storage FAQ and has a links section with suppliers - good ones.

    Another useful resource is Backwoods Home Magazine's site

    I found some powdered milk, but I was disapointed sense it expires this year.

    FUCK YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    As my birthday started getting closer, my parents finally took me to a Honeyvill store (they sell freeze dried fruits, eggs, vegetables, etc. that have a shelf life of 10 to 15 years.)

    I can scratch powered butter, powered milk, powered cheese sauce, powdered eggs, freeze dried vegetables, freeze dried strawberries, and freeze dried peaches off my list.

    I can't tell you how good it feels to finally get some survival supplies on my pantry shelves at home.

    a pain in the ass to cook in desperate survival situations, but i always thought if i became homeless, i could survive off pancakes (and some protein on the side). they're really filling and cost little.

    I realize you said you don't want to shop online. However, I have bought many things from these sites with no issues. The Mountain House freeze dried items are incredibly good and the prices are reasonable at both places.

    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Large (20 pounds or more) dehydrated corn
    Canned carrots
    Canned potatoes
    Freeze dried or dehydrated (mildew proof) fruit.
    Any other dehydrated bean other than Pinto beans
    Powered butter
    Canned meat (preferably not cat food)
    Soft chewable vitamins (like the gummy bear vitamins)

    I don�t like ordering food online- any suggestions?

    Note!
    I don�t need any more things like rice, ramen noodles, honey, canned tomato soup, and pinto beans. I�ve got enough as it is. (I haven�t even gotten into my supply and I�m already sick of the lack of variety)
    How you could forget nuts is beyond me. Some of the most calorie and nutrient dense food you can find, extremely portable, no prep needed, and long lasting. When I go camping I don't go without a healthy supply of nuts.
