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!  

We are finishing up the 72-hour kits this week!!  This week, add some hand warmers/canned heat.  This is especially important if you live in a colder climate.  You can probably find these at most sport stores, as well as Amazon here.

Also this week, go over our 72-hour kit list and make sure you have everything you need.

How's your three-month supply coming along?  Remember, the goal is that you are prepared enough that you could stay home for 3 months and have everything you need.  Be sure everyone in your family is taken care of, including your pets!  Don't forget toiletries, cleaning supplies, etc.

This month for our longer-term storage, we're gathering beans!!
