Day 14 - Some More Resources to help along the Preparedness Journey!

Some helpful websites I have come across in my quest for becoming prepared:

The Survival Mom has some great "getting started" type articles on her website.  She's pretty much a preparedness super hero!

The ladies at Food Storage Made Easy have it down to a science.  Sign up for their newsletter and they'll send you checklists and baby steps.  Their 7 Day Challanges are also a great way to figure out where your preparedness Achilles heal is.

Duct Tape, anyone?  25 uses in a survival setting.  I'm sure there are a hundred more, too!

Here are 25 ways to be more self-reliant.  

With tornado season right around the corner, and earthquakes and fires always a possibility out west, here are 9 Checklists to help when you evacuate your home.

Home Ec 101 has a great post about stocking an emergency pantry.  She says:
If you don’t have ready cash, don’t freak out. A pantry can be built slowly over time, it doesn’t have to be done in one giant run to Sam’s or Costco. Set aside a portion of each week’s food budget to purchase shelf stable foods. When planning the purchases make sure the foods are ones that will be eaten and have a decent nutritional punch. In a serious emergency it’s better to have plenty of peanut butter, beans,  or tuna than a case of ramen noodles.  Why? Empty calories cause blood sugar spikes and crashes, which leave most people cranky, headachy2, and lethargic.

New to me things I want to try:

Peanut Butter Powder

I have seen these "dry canned" foods on a lot of websites and really want to try it.  I don't have a foodsaver, but using the oxygen absorbers should get a good result and keep the food for at least 1 year.
