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 a change of clothes (or two) for each person. Now, you may decide that you want each person's kit to hold only their own things (each person carries their own clothes, food, toiletries, etc), or you may decided to divvy it up a bit differently (one person carries all the food, one person the water, etc). For some ideas on how Abbie did hers, check out her article about 72-hour kit distribution: who carries what?
How is your three-month supply coming along? Don't forget to store 2 weeks of water! Water is more important than food. To learn more about water storage, click on the link. We've written a lot of articles about different aspects of water storage.
We are gathering beans this month for our longer-term storage. I LOVE beans! And I'm always looking for new ways to use them.
What are your favorite kinds of beans (and recipes), and how do you cook them?
