Check out Honeyville on facebook, they update info often!
The first class was taught by Lisa Barker, the store manager, and her class was about "What's in Your Ark?" We learned about having a one month supply and how much that would cost.
One Month Supply
Sugar or Honey 5lbs
Salt 1/4th box
Fats & Oils 1 2/3lbs
Cost of buying this all at Honeyville as of 4/2011 was $40.00 & change. That is very affordable and you would have the basics for one person!!
|Oat Groats & the Oat Roller|
|Hand Held Food Saver|
Are You An Asset or a Liability?The second class was taught by Tami Girsberger, and she taught us how to be an Asset and not a Liability when it comes to disasters and emergencies. We all have different assets to share with others. In an emergency I may have the food and luggable loos while others may have knowledge in the medical fields. Others may be a comforter to the distressed and many will have the ability to repair homes and buildings. We all need to have compassion and know that our specific asset will be of use in an emergency. Tami has a great company that sells portable potties and washing machines out of 5 gallon buckets. Her website preparemylife.com has more info.
One of the most important pieces of information that I took away from her class was that we all needed a PLAN! If there was an emergency during the day and your husband was at work and your kids were at school, where would you all meet? Have a family meeting and talk about a neighborhood meeting place and a meeting place outside of your neighborhood. Also you NEED to have an out of state contact that everyone knows the phone number of. If you couldn't contact your family because of phone lines being tied up, you may be able to reach the out of state contact person. This way if everyone checked in with that one person you would all be on the same page and have the comfort of knowing everyones situation.
Also check out the really cool water containers, called Rocky Mountain Water, that are portable and don't ever expire. Turn them on their side and they have a spigot that pokes into the water bladder. You can order them through Tami as well for around $6.50 when you buy 6 or more.
There was so much more information learned at these classes. I highly suggest you check them out! On Tuesday, April 26th at 11:00 the executive chef from Shirley J will be cooking and demonstrating the Shirley J products. Yummy!!
Enjoy the journey!
Enjoy the blessings!
Feel the Peace!!
