We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
We are a day late with our normally scheduled Tuesday post - I hope it doesn't mess up anyone's schedule! :)
This week for your 72-hour kits, add any pet food that you will need. Also consider adding anything else your pet may need, such as any medications, an extra leash, some treats, etc.
Also this week, add some candles and waterproof matches. Don't forget to include candle holders as well! You will want to use these as light sources, so you don't have to use up battery power if you don't need to.
How's your three-month supply coming along? Once you buy items for your three-month food storage supply, don't put them away in a closet and forget about them. Use them, and practice making some of the food storage meals that you have planned! Make sure your family likes them! Just keep good track of what you are using so that you can replace the items next time you are at the grocery store. I try to fix one food storage meal every week or two - both to rotate my items, and also to make sure my family enjoys them and that the recipe makes enough food for one complete meal.
This month for our longer-term storage, we're still gathering wheat! We'll be moving on to oats in December.
