You know this plan? Well...
I did one or two months, and then kind of tapered off.
And apparently, I'm obsessed with hygiene. Because this is what I got last time I went to the store:
They are little travel cleaning products for our 72-hour kits: shampoo, conditioner, hand sanitizer, soap, deodorant, lotion, and mouth wash.
BUT. We got our tax return, and before something befalls us (kidney stone, car trouble, etc.), I went and spent it all. I went to The Preparedness Store, and ordered a year's worth of food storage for one person and a 55-gallon water drum. The food, packed in #10 cans, lasts for at least 30 years ("store and ignore"). This is the one I got. The water drum, when you put some magic stuff in it, keeps water fresh for 7 years. 7 years!
Though I'm far from done collecting food storage, it feels really great to have something in our basement.
Oh, and I totally won something food-storagey! There was a giveaway at Safely Gathered In, and I left a comment, and the random generator picked me! I won some little emergency first aid cards. I never win. NEVER. (Well, never before I won over at their blog.) But hey, go check out their site-they have oodles and gobs of good information, recipes, free printable stuff, etc.
YAY for being prepared!
