Plan AND Prepare!!

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly

Unreal!!  I have, like most of you, been watching the videos and pictures coming out of Japan.  It is unreal and so heartbreaking.  It goes without saying that being prepared with food, shelter and water is more important than ever!  I know some have said that what is the use of preparing if a flood just sweeps it all away, but what if your home was further away and not affected.  You could be the one to bless others in time of distress!!  You would also be blessed because you followed the counsel to prepare!  

FEMA has a great website with very important information on planning and preparing.  Click HERE to see the FEMA page on planning and preparing.

Food-Water-Shelter:  The three most important things to have for an emergency!  Take the time now to prepare for what may come!


3-Month Supply Goal:  Make 1 meal per week that uses only food from your pantry and food storage.

Water Goal: This month you need to fill all your used juice and detergent bottles with water.  Label them and store them for cleaning water.

Financial Goal:  Last month we wrote down everything we spent for a week.  Now that you know where you could be saving money, you need to put that money away to use towards your food storage.  Next month is case lot sale month and you could save your money for that sale!!

Long-Term Storage Goal:  This month is frozen food month and we are going to focus on MEATS & FROZEN FOOD!  Your freezer is your friend when it comes to a 3-month supply.  Most meats and vegetables can be frozen to extend the life of the food.  Use your freezer as an extension of your pantry!  

Wavelength Emergency Radio/Cell phone charger/flashlight
Emergency Preparedness Goal:  This month you need to add a radio and a crank cell phone charger to your storage.  Both are inexpensive (radios can be as expensive as you want) and can be found online and in many stores.  Make sure the cell phone charger you purchase has a plug that fits your phone.  Emergency Essentials sells a radio/charger/flashlight combo for $12.95!!  Click HERE to see that product.

Enjoy the Journey!
Enjoy the Blessings!
Feel the Peace!!
