Food Storage Tuesday

Every Tuesday, we post specific items you should gather in order to supplement your emergency car 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 car kit is complete, we'll be putting together 72-hour kits again (week by week).  Once those are done, we'll gather the car kits again.  So don't worry, just jump on in and join us where we are today!

This week for your car kits, add a flashlight and batteries.  Better yet, add a crank flashlight so you won't even need batteries.  This crank flashlight on Amazon has great reviews, but shop around to find what will be best for you.

How's your three-month supply coming along?  Like I said last week, we are trying to eat through a lot of ours before we move, so I've been putting our food storage meal plan into action.  We have one or two food storage meals per week (supplemented with fresh salad, fruit, etc).

We're still gathering "other" items this month for the long-term food storage.   Hope you're stocking up on all those "extras"! :)
