It's Tuesday!

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 month for your 72-hour kits, add a utility knife. These can be found anywhere and you can get them for under $12. I've added an Amazon link over on the right side of the page to show you an example. That one has great reviews, so feel free to purchase online or in any store.

How is your three month supply coming along? Don't forget to keep track of what you eat so that you can replace it when you go grocery shopping. Want some food rotation methods to help you stay organized? Check out our "how to" page for some ideas.

We're still gathering beans this month for our longer term storage! Check out our bean recipes for some great meal ideas, and feel free to post your own recipes on our Test Kitchen site!
