What Did You Do For Your Preparedness This Week? (9-15-17)
What did you do for your preparedness this week?
When you focus on building your emergency supply a little bit at a time, it'll allow you to budget things out. Before you know it, you'll have a solid emergency supply built up!
So, for those who have been working on building their supply, what has your focus been this week? Have you been saving for a new water barrel, some food buckets, etc? Maybe you grabbed some cans of fruit, vegetables, and/or beans at Walmart on your weekly shopping trip?
Comment below! Not only will it help us better understand where our followers are in their preparedness, but you may just end up helping out a newer prepper!
For those who are new to prepping and are wanting to ramp up their weekly focus on building their supplies, here is a good rough outline of where to start.
1) Get/build a 72 hour kit. We have kits pre built for you here, and if you want to build your own, we have a checklist of essential items here!
2) Build a 1 week supply of emergency water. Generally, this can be done by purchasing a few extra cases of bottled water at the store each week and rotating through them. Try and shoot for 2 gallons per person per day to cover drinking, cooking, cleaning, etc. 1.5 gallons for children under 12. Check out our water storage options here, and our article on building your water supply here for additional information!
3) Build a 1 week pantry food supply that will serve as your go to emergency food immediately after disaster strikes. This doesn't need to be freeze dried or dehydrated food. This can be as simple as grabbing 20 cans of fruit, 20 cans of vegetables, and 20 cans of beans/meats at the store. Something that you can easily crack open and eat without having to worry about re-hydrating it. Your freeze dried and dehydrated food is for after that initial 1-2 weeks ideally. MRE's are another good option to consider if you do not want to get cans. Click here to see our MRE kit!
The 3 items above are a great place to start! Checking off those 3 tasks alone will make you more prepared then 90% of Americans. But, those items are just the beginning. They will give you the momentum you need to eventually grow your emergency supplies to where you want and need them to be!
