Preparedness Challenge - Week 1

When it comes to preparedness, it isn't all or nothing, you can do it one task at a time. Although I would say the more you can do the better.  It doesn't matter what you are preparing for - whether it be a natural disaster or zombie apoolypse - the prep is the same. This week, I challenge you to begin  just one thing or add to what you are currently doing.  Examples include but are not limited to:
  • saving water
  • canning/saving bulk food
  • making a first aid kit
  • planting a garden
  • living without electricity/off grid
  • educating others on being prepared

This week, I started seeds for the garden:  lettuce, spinach & broccoli. Also I added quite a few things to the "disaster closet" (where we keep our bottled water and extra food) and researched herbal remedies for burns.

Join the Challenge

To join the Preparedness Challenge, just write a post on something you did this week to prepare and then link up below or leave a comment. Even one thing a week adds up and it will encourage you to do even more! And by participating in the challenge, it will get you thinking about prepping on a regular basis. 

Please only post on preparedness topics. And be sure to take the Preparedness Challenge picture and add it to your blog so others know you're participating and hopefully they'll join up, too!
