Every Tuesday, we post specific items you should gather in order to supplement your 72-hour 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 72-hour kit is complete, we'll be putting together emergency car kits again (week by week). Once those are done, we'll gather the 72-hour kits again. So don't worry, just jump on in and join us where we are today!

We just finished gathering our emergency car kits a few weeks ago, and we're moving on to the 72-hour kits!

This week, gather some backpacks or something similar to actually pack everything in. Keep in mind that you may be on foot if you ever needed to use them. Many people like to use Tupperware bins, and I think you can get some on wheels that would probably be great. Abbie and her husband each use big backpacking backpacks, and their kids have regular backpacks. I've also heard of people using wheeled luggage. This week, decide what you want to use and go get it! You could probably find some great stuff at the Salvation Army or Goodwill.

How is your three-month supply coming along? Do you have a 3 month recipe plan? I also like the store 3-4 months' worth of cleaning supplies and other hygiene needs (t.p., diapers, wipes, feminine products, etc).

We're gathering wheat this month for longer-term storage. Not sure how to cook with wheat? Check out our wheat recipes!

And finally, we had a week of giveaways last week - thanks to everyone who participated, and congrats to the winners! Not all the winners have contacted us, so please go check to see if you were one of the lucky ones! If we don't hear from you by this Friday, we'll have to find new winners!

I'm new to your site, and I was wondering: What is a 3 month recipe plan (although it sounds a little self-explanatory!)? How do you put it together? Do you have that here on the website? What a great resource this is! Thanks!

I just found Morning Moos red or white wheat on sale at Macey's for only $16.99 for a 45 pound pail! This is a great price already in the pail! So if your near a Macey's great place to stock up on wheat!!
