Food Storage 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 week for your 72-hour kits, add a small first aid kit.  That link will take you to one on Amazon that looks pretty great (it's actually a 2-pack, which would be very handy so two people could have their own kits.  Maybe one in Mom's kit and one in Dad's).  Shop around for a first aid kit that will fit and will work for your family.  I suspect that they are all pretty similar so you can't really go wrong here. :)

How's your three-month supply coming along?  I'm STILL working on my meal plan.  If you want a ready-made 3 month meal plan and shopping list, check out our food storage e-book.

This month for our longer-term storage, we are gathering rice.  Not sure what to do with rice?? You can see all our food storage rice recipes here.
