Week #8 February 19th - 25th
Here is what we've been working on this week:
INVENTORY: Count the large and small cans or buckets of beans, meat and soup you already have, and record the amount on yourinventory worksheet. Straighten and dust just those shelves. Bring items close to expiration to your kitchen counter to use this week in your menu planning.
EMERGENCY FUND: Put aside the weekly financial reserve amount you decided on with your spouse. Consider $2.00 per week per family member as a place to start.
WATER SUPPLY (2-week supply): Continue to buy or fill water if needed. Work towards 14 gallons per person.
FOOD STORAGE (3-month supply): Pancake mix 2 lbs. and pancake syrup 32 oz. per person. Adjust amount for smaller children if you wish. I buy mine from Costco in bulk sizes.
NON-FOOD: 1 floss or bag of floss picks per person with teeth.
72-HOUR KIT: Add a whistle and a mirror. They may help someone find you in a emergency.
AUTO KIT: Add a whistle and a mirror. They may help someone find you in a emergency.
EQUIPMENT: Cell phone w/texting capabilities or walkie talkies.
