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, we're still gathering food. Be sure to check out Abbie's article from a few weeks ago about what kinds of food to keep in your kits.

How is your three-month supply coming along? Don't forget to store three months' worth of medications and other OTC medicines that you may need.

This month for our longer-term storage, we're gathering wheat. At LDS Catalog You can buy wheat already canned up in #10 cans, ready to store. Prices include shipping. You can also buy wheat in big bags and then store it in 5 gallon buckets to keep it safe from the bugs.

I know that this week is supposed to be food for the 72 hours kits, but I thought I would just mention that now is a good time to check the after Halloween sales for glow sticks for your 72 hour kits, car kits and for around the house during power outages.

As an example, our Walmart had the glow sticks in the Halloween isle reduced to 25 cents each. At that price you can stock up for all your emergency kits.
