Again – I have gotten a little behind. Here is my Project Preparedness catch up post.

Week 14:

2—aluminum foil, bxs

1—Ziploc bags, bx

$5.00 Cash

 ***Aluminum foil would be great to have for cooking/heating food. A box of 50-100 sandwich bags with the Ziploc top would be very useful for numerous reasons such as storing food, dividing supplies, or waterproofing documents.

Week 15:

1—Flashlight

1—extra batteries

3—Spring water, gallons

 ***You can never have too many flashlights and extra batteries. Same goes for water – you must maintain enough water for everyone in your group to last for ? days,

These should be considered disposable – but very useful if you are stuck outside in the rain. Insect repellent is a MUST when the bugs are just driving you crazy  – buzzing in your ears. An emergency situation will be bad enough – you don’t need the added stress of bugs all over

List for this week:

2—Beef Stew, large cans 2—Soup, cans 1—Duct Tape, roll 2—Tooth Brushes

For the beef stew – I am not talking about the gigantic mammoth cans of beef stew – one’s that are about twice the size of a common soup can. You can pick up a pack of inexpensive toothbrushes at the $1.00 store. Don’t skimp on the duct tape – try to get a name brand as it will be of much higher quality.

Here is the 2nd installment of Project: Preparedness – a weekly list of suggested survival items to purchase running around $10.00.

I suggest that you find a plastic tote of cabinet/closet in your home to maintain your supplies. I like to use totes as in the event that I need to move the supplies  – it will be easy to grab and place in my vehicle.

List for this week:

1  – First Aid Kit

1 -   Hydrogen Peroxide, bottle

That’s it. Obviously the focus this week is medical/first aid. You can buy a decent first aid kit as Wal-Mart and

Project: Preparedness

Starting this week I am going to be posting a list of items to acquire. This is for those that possibly are new into “prepping” as well as to possibly identify an item here or there that may have escaped the veteran survivalist.

The cost of these items will vary – but I am going to do my best to make it affordable. I want to point out that the average family over a short time can build a stock of supplies without making a huge impact on the wallet. Most weeks will add up to around $10.00.

I am going
