Emergency Preparedness

I have been reading the "Emergency Preparedness and Survival Guide" from the Backwoods Home Magazine.There is one section that gives you 4 week shopping list that you are supose to get these supplies for just $10 bucks. Well I want to give it a whirl. I don't know if I will be able to do for $10 bucks, but I will try to keep it close as possible. The first week is 10 pounds of rice, 2 pounds of beans, a jar of Tang, and 5 pound tub of vegetable shorting. I will be doing this shopping today after church and posting the results later tonight.

I did get to prep some garden items yesterday. I got to make 3 pints of salsa, spicy at that. I was able to pick some more cukes from the garden I am going to try and make some dill's with them.

Working on the moat....

I'm a fan of Backwoods Home Magazine and recommend it to others. They have a pretty good handle on preparedness and self reliant living and do a good job interacting with readers via the letters section.
All the best on your own preparedness efforts.

Rook, Backwoods Home is the greatest. Those guys are living a dream.

I'd just say to remember the listed prices are from before the recent jumps so I'd raise the bar to say $15.00.

Only add Tang if you like Tang.

Rice is pretty important, though.
