1. Drinking water

Consider investing in a filter so you can drink boiled, cooled, filtered tap water as an alternative to bottled water.

2. Flour

3. Dried legumes

Dried beans and lentils last a long time and are a good source of protein. Soak overnight before cooking.

Unopened and stored properly, vegetable oil has a long shelf life. Avoid storing above a stove as heat makes it go rancid faster.

5. Milk
