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 mess kits or disposable plates/cups/silverware.  You can find these at your local Walmart, or even on Amazon.  

How is your 3-month supply coming along?  I know I just said this a few weeks ago, but make sure you are "stocked up" for winter: canned soups, Gatorade (bottles or dry mix), cold medicines, tissues, hot chocolate mix, etc.  Anything else I'm missing?  What do you like to have on hand during the winter?

We are still gathering oats this month for our longer-term storage.  Not sure what to do with oats?  Check out our food storage oats recipes.
