I first started stock piling food when my best friend’s husband was fired from his job. They had to move quickly and money was tight. It is hard enough when you have to get every last dime together and move and also worry about how you will put food on the table to feed your children.
A friend of our families recently lost her home to a winter storm. Another reminder that we need to be prepared for an emergency. We live paycheck to paycheck right now, so it can be hard to save money for a disaster, but if we at least start preparing for an emergency with a food supply that is better than nothing.
So what are all plans for preparing? Here are the top things I want to have in our Emergency Supply.
- Bandanges, etc.
- A place to go to the bathroom.
We have been stock piling cans of food, but they do expire, so we plan on going with a supply kit that will last more than just a couple of years.
Don’t just think storms either. The news in insane these days. I try not to be scared about all this North Korea talk, but I know at the same time that we should try to be prepared should anything happen. There are lots of different services at there that can help you prepare.
We don’t have a cat or a dog, but we do have a bird. Make sure when you are creating your emergency supply that you also think of your pets.
All we can do is hope and pray that disaster never strikes us. I try not to let it consume my thoughts, but I do have anxiety, so it does cause me to worry more. Once I have my safety plan completely set up, I will feel a lot better about protecting my family. This doesn’t just have to be about storms, or being attacked by other countries if you lose your job it is also best to be prepared if you can’t afford food for a short period of time. Since we live paycheck to paycheck, and we are working at getting out of debt I know how important it is to be prepared for all situations.
What are you doing to prepare for an emergency? Do you have any tips for us that may help?
Until next time,
