Why Food Storage and the like


This blog comes to help us all deal with FS questions and to build up from a starting place & build a more complete and full FS & how to be more Self Reliant. Let us all get Prepared & ready for anything that may come our way. You never know when Mother Nature, Man Made Disaster or Money Problems may come and you would need your FS to get you through! I will talk about Emergency Preparedness also!

Food Storage, Emergency Preparedness, Other tips and Ideas. Let me help you get ready for what ever may come!

I started Food Storage over 15 years ago. I have taught many classes and been a speaker and helped many people over the years. This is a place where I can state things or address issues I want to cover.

Prepare Spring is Here

Spring has sprung, well for most of us. This is the time of year most people do some spring cleaning, well this goes for your 72 hour kits, first aid kits and such as well. This is the time of year to go through our 72 hour kits, first aid kits and time to buy supplies that we need to rotate, or to buy.

For those that live on the East coast it is time to think about your hurricane preparations. Does your state offer a tax free week to buy certain supplies for the hurricane season? If so this is the time to save some money and buy a few things you may be needing. Do you have flood insurance? Time to make sure you are covered! 

Get out your kits, rotate the food, water and medications. Check the clothes for moths, and bugs. Wash your clothes if good, still fits, etc then repack in your kit. You should wash your 72 hour kit clothes at least once a year, if not twice a year. You do not want anything to leak on to the clothes, or for them to start smelling, especially in humid climates.

Make sure you have a manual can opener, if not two! Matches and ways to light up your night! Glow sticks and flashlights are the best options.

So when you spring clean your house, spring clean your 72 hour kit, first aid kit, rotate food, water, and clothes and shoes. Check the dates!

We are all busy, but we all need to take the time to spring clean our kits.
Be safe and have fun and always keep smiling!
