So this week's simple tip- start getting 2 weeks of drinking water! It's not hard or expensive, and especially this week everyone has bottled water on sale for the big game. Plan 1 gallon per person, per day. That's about 5 cases (24 bottles per case) of water per person. They stack up nicely in a closet, or stuff them under beds. They usually store for close to a year and we use them in school lunches, hunting trips, park trips etc. Whenever I see them on sale for $3 I buy a couple to keep supplies up. You don't have to go out and buy it all at once, just grab up a few each time you're at the store and you'll be set.

Food Storage Friday
I know it's not really Friday anymore, but I've been thinking about doing this for a while and I didn't get to it yesterday. I have a blog because I enjoy it, I like to think about what I'm going to write, I like to find cool things to share with whoever might care to read it, (without spamming everyone in my address book) but I do want it to be useful to you- whoever you may be. I want you to want to read it because you might learn or find something new. I have a really great resource when it comes to food storage and provident living in my mom, and I realized not everyone has that, and maybe you want to learn more? If you can't believe the words of a prophet telling us we should store up necessary food and supplies, maybe you would consider it based on the teachings of Al Gore! or even our own government, FEMA, tells us we should be doing what we can to help ourselves because they might not be able to get to us in a timely manner in case of emergency. And they were saying that even when they had plenty of money and resources. SO- I'm thinking Fridays I will try and post some kind of tip or reminder to make some preparations for your family in case of natural disaster, terrorist attack, bird flu, job loss, or just to have peace of mind or opportunity to help when you hear about others dealing with these situations.
