This week for your 72-hour kits, add 2 gallons of water per person. This can be a challenge to add to your packs, but water is so important and you cannot leave it out. We wrote a blog post a few months ago about 72-hour kit distribution. Abs' husband carries most of the family's water in his pack - that may be a good option for your family, too. You can store the water in old juice bottles, or similar. Check out Abbie's post about how to prepare them for water storage.
How is your three-month supply coming along? Don't forget to store water for that, too. It is recommended that you store at least 2 weeks of water for each person. If you store a lot of dehydrated food in your storage, you will need much more.
We are still gathering oats this month for the longer-term storage. Check out our oat recipes for some meal ideas!
