Food Storage Tuesday

Every Tuesday, we post specific items you should gather in order to supplement your 72-hour kit, your three-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 disinfectant and garbage bags.  I like packing Lysol or Clorox wipes.  You should also have hand sanitizer.  Also, pack at least 3 garbage bags (one for each day).  They don't take up much space (or weight) so feel free to pack extras too if you think you might need them.

How's your three-month supply coming along?  Now's the time to stock up on any Christmas-y food items that your family loves that are only available this time of year.

We are gathering oats this month for our longer-term storage.
