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!

This week for your 72-hour kits, add a flashlight and batteries to each pack. Each person should have their own. You may want to consider a windup flashlight so you won't even have to worry about batteries expiring or going dead - this could save you lots of money in the long run. On the right side of the page we've added an Amazon link to a windup battery that has good reviews - just a suggestion. You should be able to find them in most stores, too.

How is your three-month supply coming along? DON'T forget about the importance of storing water. You really should have 2 weeks of drinking water stored for your entire family. Abbie recently did a great post about how to store water in plastic bottles - check it out!

We're still gathering wheat this month for our longer-term storage. You can buy it already canned up in #10 cans from LDS Catalog. Price includes shipping.

Can I store flour instead of wheat? I don't have a wheat grinder and don't know what I would do with it if I had it.
