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 some trash bags.  They come in very handy for, well, trash - but they are also handy for keeping things dry if there's rain.

How is your three-month supply coming along?  It's hard to stay focused during the busy holidays, especially when you may feel strapped for cash.  Just pick up an extra can or two of food when you hit the grocery store - every little bit helps.

We're still gathering oats for our longer-term storage this month.  Gotta love oats!  Oatmeal bread, oatmeal cookies, oatmeal for breakfast, granola bars, granola cereal.... yum!
