Every Tuesday, we post specific items you should gather in order to supplement your emergency car kit, your 3-month supply, and your longer-term storage. If you are new to our blog, don't worry! You won't be left behind. Just start up where we are and follow along. You will eventually have everything completed! Once the car kit is complete, we'll be putting together 72-hour kits again (week by week). Once those are done, we'll gather the car kits again. So don't worry, just jump on in and join us where we are today!

This week for your car kits, add a change of clothes for each of your children, and for yourself if you want to. It doesn't have to be much - just shorts and a t-shirt is fine. To be honest, I'm only going to add a change of clothes for my 2-year-old. There are many reasons why she might need to change her clothes, but I don't think it's worth the space to store clothes for myself.

How is your three month supply coming along? I know this doesn't exactly qualify as "three month supply", but PLEASE make sure you are storing at least 2 weeks of water for everyone in your family. Water is SO important and should not be neglected in your food storage. For more information on water storage, check out our water series by clicking on "Water" under our topics column (bottom right side of the web page).

We're still gathering rice this month for the longer-term storage. Get what you can!
