It's Tuesday!

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!

We're finishing up the car kits this week! Add a pocket knife to your box, as well as $5-20 cash, whatever you feel comfortable with. You should have a good mix of coins and small bills. CONGRATS if you've been following along with us and have the whole kit done. Next week we'll do a "catch-up" week, so that you can get anything you may have missed, and then we'll be starting the 72-hour kits again after that.

How is your three month supply going? Remember, it's very doable if you make a plan!

How's your longer-term storage coming? I was able to get a bunch of white sugar and flour over the weekend, so that was good. I'm also going to try to get some pasta on sale this week and stock up on that. A lot of it will be stored with my three-month supply, but I'll hopefully have enough extra that it will spill over into my longer-term storage as well.

Also.... our one-year anniversary of the blog is coming up in a few weeks, and we're planning some GREAT giveaways from some awesome companies. We're so excited!

Hi, can you suggest a type/brand of pocket knife? How much should I spend? Also, what is the purpose of the pocket knife in the car kit, versus scissors or something similar? Thanks!

Hannah and Abs,

I have a few questions about your pasta purchases?

Do you buy it from the grocery store?

Do you process, mylar bags and O2 absorbers, the pasta or leave it in the cardboard box?

Thanks, Someone You Know
