Food Storage Tuesday

Every Tuesday, we post specific items you should gather in order to supplement your emergency car 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 car kit is complete, we'll be putting together 72-hour kits again (week by week). Once those are done, we'll gather the car kits again. So don't worry, just jump on in and join us where we are today!

This week for your car kits, add some wet wipes and a roll of toilet paper.  I use wet wipes for everything, it seems.  And a roll of toilet paper in the car can be used for a number of things as well... besides the obvious!  Last time we gathered toilet paper for emergency preparedness, someone commented that it would be a good idea to take the cardboard out of the middle.  That way you can flatten the roll and put it in a plastic baggy.  Great idea!

How is your three month supply coming along?  Don't forget water storage!

We are gathering "other" items this month for the longer-term supply.  I'm focusing on pasta and white flour.  What are you gathering?

White sugar, honey, and hard tact candies. Yes, I had a sweet tooth when I was deciding what to store this month. LOL
