Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!
The new job presents me with a sense of gratitude in a couple of areas. This time, I had a bit of financial reserve to bear the weight of some un-calculated time off. I have food and kind people that both help me with sustenance. I have a set of reminders for the planning of next year's seasonal downtime.
Be frugal with everything you have and own. This can insure your family a meal, a warm bed, and a fresh drink of water. Take the time to look around your home and decide what is there for necessity, what is comfort, and what is truly for entertainment. Can you do without these things? Can you live in your home without having to visit a store for a week? A month? A year? How will you heat the home? How will you warm up a meal if the power goes out? Do you think the supplies you have set aside will carry you a period of time if you absolutely had to remain in your home because of a crisis outside your neighborhood? If the answer is "I don't know" to any of these questions, it is time to build a list. Take the list and make it a reality. Do it in small portions, but make it a reality. There are factors we cannot foresee and that is the best reason to live The Survival Recovery Way. You make your own title to your preparedness planning and stick to it. The better you plan today for tomorrow, the better you can recover.
Be smart about your food storage. There are some really odd things out there for preserving foods and I honestly do not think they are safe. Trust known sources.. Read and study the sites you find, but be suspicious and cautious. The wrong information can make you and your family extremely sick or worse. I do not even want to think about worse case scenarios in a bad food situation. Food poisoning is deadly and it can be a very uncomfortable situation. Be food smart wherever you prepare your meals.
Healthy Cooking and Recipes
I have been posting on my other blogs, but have decided to consolidate all of my efforts to this site blog for purposes of organization. The new year is upon us already and I am thrilled with it's prospects.
What is on your list for preparedness 2014?
