The past challenge took me by surprise because it is all about EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS.
I'll admit it, in a teeny tiny baby apartment, it is HARD to make room for emergency supplies but we decided to take this opportunity to make it a priority.
Because you never know when there will be an unexpected
After a lot of planning, I put together a couple of 72 hour kits for the mister and I.
I made a list of the expiration dates for all the food items to include in our family binder so I know when to switch items out.
Everything is packed separately in gallon sized ziplock bags to protect them from water damage. We store everything inside of a backpack to make them easy to grab and carry in case of an emergency.
It took a lot of planning to get everything prepared and organized but the peace of mind is well worth the effort!
