I've Been Thinking...

Lately I've been thinking a lot about Emergency Preparedness and the things that we need. Thanks to my mother-in-law we have a pretty good supply of canned/boxed food that we could eat off of for a while. However we don't really have stuff together in a quick way to grab in case we don't have a lot of time to gather everything together or things always in the car in case there is ever an emergency either. Now, if any of you have ever seen the trunk of my car you know that I could probably survive out of there for plenty of time but do I really want to eat ridiculously stale peanut butter crackers or have to layer on all of the clothes that I have been meaning to take to DI for months? No, I'd rather just take some time and put an actual kit together for Jeff and myself in our cars. So what does this all mean?

My goal between now and General Conference is to have a 72-hour kit for each of us in the house and an Emergency Car Kit in each of our cars. That gives me about 3 months to collect and shop the sales. Thank goodness for pinterest and all  of the people out there that have gone before and made awesome lists. I have compiled a list of things from these lists adjusted because let's be honest, I'd rather not eat those tuna from a pouch things.

These are not ours but they're what I hope that they end up looking like.

I wish I could be like this woman so after the Emergency Kits maybe I'll try doing this. She plans all of her 3 month storage into meals in bags with the recipe. Genius!

I'm always up for ideas and suggestions so if you have any, let me know. Oh and I do plan on giving a Christmas/New Years update, maybe today, probably tomorrow.
