Starting over, and this week's schedule

Hey everyone!  Hannah here.  It's great to be back!  In a way, I feel like I'm starting over with food storage.  My family just moved from Virginia to Florida, so our last couple of months in Virginia were spent eating through a lot of our food storage in order to pack/move less (although to be honest, we really didn't have that much to begin with, since we only lived there 12 months). Abbie is in a similar boat, since she and her family just moved from Georgia to New York.  

So, we are ready to kick off the blog again, starting with a week of giveaways!  That's right, we've got FOUR awesome giveaways scheduled for this week: two from Shelf Reliance, one from Emergency Essentials, and one from us!

Each giveaway will be posted at 10 a.m. EDT (Tues-Fri) and they will run until 8 a.m. EDT the next morning (so, each giveaway is open for 22 hours).  We'll post the winner about an hour after the giveaway closes, and then the new giveaway will start soon after! (I hope that makes sense?)

You can enter the giveaways the same way you always do: by commenting on the actual giveaway post.  If you receive our posts through your email, you'll need to go to our actual blog site and comment there.

The reason we're telling you our detailed schedule is that sometimes Google Reader doesn't show our posts until giveaways have closed, so some people miss out.  So be sure to visit our site every day this week for your chance to enter each giveaway!

And finally, a quote that I am loving right now:

“The first step [in food storage] is to begin. The second is to continue. It doesn’t matter how fast we get there so much as that we begin and continue according to our abilities.”

Presiding Bishop H. David Burton

I feel like I am "beginning" again, and it will probably be slow going at first (gotta find the room, save up money for it, etc.).  I feel like I am always learning new things about food storage, and I'm excited to share those things with you (and also learn from you in the process).  I hope you are excited to join me!

Glad you are back! I too just went through my food storage, for different reasons, and am replenishing. I learn so much from you and look forward to your upcoming posts.
