September Food Storage and Prep Handout

September is the month I gather some meat and potatoes into my food storage, and work on earthquake preparedness. This would also be a good month to prepare for any disaster which is common to your area, such as a hurricane, fire, flood, tornado, etc.


Here is a handout I created for my ward Relief Society with my goals for September. You are welcome to print it for personal or church use.
What I’m Gathering in September:
  • Macey’s Case Lot Sale – Stew, canned potatoes, alcohol, hyrogen peroxide.
  • Costco – Kirkland canned chicken, (easy to use in baking dishes and sandwiches), Kirkland canned beef (had to call several stores), laundry detergent, hand sanitizer.
  • Walmart – Liquid hand soap refill, backpack for 72-hour kits (should be on clearance aisle), L-brackets (to brace bookcases), duct tape.
  • Amazon – bungee cords, collapsible pet food and water containers
Great websites with information on earthquake preparedness. Most states have their own. Here are some of my favorites:
The Red Cross
Ready.gov
USGS
CDC

This is also a great month to work on your auto emergency kit. But I’ll talk about that in another post.
