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 some blankets.  The best option is probably something like emergency mylar blankets.  I personally have never bought these in the past but plan to soon.  Does anyone have any experience with these?  From what I hear they are a great option for warmth without taking up a lot of space in your kits.  They are not expensive, either, so don't hesitate too much on these!  They would be a great asset to your kits, especially if you live in cooler climates.

How's your three month supply coming along?  Don't forget cleaning supplies, toiletries, etc.

We're still gathering beans this month for our longer-term storage.  Yum!  

Can you believe that November is halfway over already??  Christmas will be here before we know it!  Buy some food storage for someone! :)
