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 at least $100 per family. This should be a good mix of small bills and change (one, five, and ten-dollar bills, rolls of quarters, etc). Abbie wrote a few months ago that she has split the money between her pack and her husband's pack, which is a great idea.

How is your three-month supply coming along? It really, really helps to have a plan! Don't have time to sit down and write out your recipes and shopping list? We have a complete plan available in our e-book. It includes all our recipes in printable form, as well as a complete 3-month shopping list using those recipes.

We're still gathering oats this month for our longer-term storage. Want to buy some oats already canned up in #10 cans? Check out LDS Catalog - prices include shipping. Not sure what to do with oats? Check out our oat recipes! Got some recipes of your own to share? Post them in our test kitchen!
