It's Tuesday again! Hopefully you gathered your infant & feminine needs last week. We had some great comments and suggestions about that one - some people said that they store cloth diapers, since those don't really come in sizes. What a great idea! We also know that some people were able to get deeply discounted backpacks, too. If you are still looking for some, it might not be too late.
This week, gather some candles and matches (or a lighter) for your 72-hour kits. Candles are great because this way you don't have to use your flashlights for an extended period of time and use up the batteries (unless you are using wind-up flashlights or something similar). Tea light candles are fine, and you can buy them in large bags. You may also want to get some little tea light holders, as well. They will secure the candles a bit better, and the candles are also a bit brighter if they are surrounded by glass.
If you are still trying to plan your three-month-supply, we hope our recipes are helping you out! Don't forget to plan side dishes to go along with them. Many of our meals already include veggies and meat, so I like to have a side dish of canned fruit or applesauce, so I also stock up on these.
This month is almost over - we hope you've been able to get some wheat!!
Tomorrow we are going to show you step-by-step how to build an oven. This way, even if you are without electricity, you can still prepare our food storage recipes. On Thursday we'll also be sharing another food preservation method. And, of course, Friday will be another yummy food storage meal. Stay tuned!
