1) Complete the poll questions (there are 4 - make sure to scroll down) located on the right-hand side of this blog (under the "Welcome" information). Answers are completely anonymous, and I have no way of knowing who votes, or what you voted, so please vote - this feedback from you is very important!
2) Leave a comment (in the comments for THIS post) letting me know if you would like to work on:
- 72-hr kits first, then move on to 3-mth food storage; OR
- both 72-hr kits and food storage concurrently, with one assignment in each topic each week.
3) Review your household budget and commit to an amount of money that you will set aside each and every week to go towards emergency preparedness/food storage items. It doesn't have to be a lot - just a few dollars a week can do wonders. I'm committed to coming up with ways that we can make preparedness and food storage affordable for EVERYONE - because ANY amount of preparation or storage is better than none at all! The Lord knows our individual circumstances, and He does not expect us to do more than we are able or more than we have the space or financial means to accomplish. I know that if we do our best, and do what we can, then He will bless our efforts and He will make up for the rest. But we've got to be committed to doing our part. Set your emergency preparedness/food storage budget and then commit to stick to it! If you do not use all of your budget one week, you will roll the leftover into the next week's budget.
4) Acquire for each member of your family by next Friday: a backpack, small suitcase, briefcase, small plastic tote, 5-gal plastic bucket, shoulder bag, fabric shopping bag or even a brown paper sack or cardboard box that you can use for a 72-hr kit. I will post more details about possible choices and best options throughout the week.
