She has a wonderful printable available on her website called Everything Under the Sun. She has the Everything Under the Sun Plan on a pdf for you to download or print, as well as a 10-year plan called Everything Made Simple.

Wendy DeWitt inspired me to make my version of a family-inspired food storage pantry system. There’s no point in following lists from preparedness sites that suggest you store food that you’ll never eat – you want to learn how to create a list based on foods your family eats. It also allows you to be completely familiar with the foods in your pantry and what can be made from them, instead of trying to figure out how to integrate a food you’ve never heard of. You’re likely never to eat it and it will go to waste. If you are someone who is new to this, this will definitely guide you. Browsing on the internet can sometimes be a hassle so if you found yourself here, this is the right place for you!
