For those of you wondering how I stay organized with gathering food storage and preparedness items, I look over the Monthly list and create a small list of items I want to buy/do that month on Evernote; an ap for my cell phone. Then I type a "food storage event" on Monday in my Google calendar with an alert reminder. If I can't get those items on Monday, I move the event to Tuesday, and so forth. Eventually I eliminate the list.
Here is what we are working on this week:
MAY FOCUS, Week #20
EMERGENCY FUND: Set aside $2.00 or more per person this week.
2-WEEK WATER SUPPLY: Accumulate 14 gallons per person (or 4x24 ct. cases of bottled water per person) for drinking/cooking, and more water in containers for hygiene, cleaning, toilet flushing, etc. If you already have this, move on.
3-MONTH FOOD STORAGE: 1 teriyaki sauce and/or marinade, AND 1 soy sauce and/or Worcestershire sauce.
INVENTORY: Count your condiments. Items like ketchup, mayonnaise, bbq sauce, etc. Put any items you need to use on your kitchen counter. Decide how much more you need to gather. You will see them on sale this month!
NON-FOOD: Paper plates, one month supply. A disaster essential.
72-HOUR KIT: Travel tissues.
AUTO KIT: Travel tissues.
EQUIPMENT: Charcoal and lighter fluid (if needed).
PREPAREDNESS GOAL: Photograph home contents. Take pictures of various rooms and items in those rooms with your cell phone or camera. Store pictures at a out-of-area relatives home, or in an online file in case of a disaster and you have to prove what you lost.
