Why we need Survival Planning

. . . and where to start

I know . . . survival planning, gathering survival supplies, food storage — it all seems overwhelming.

Every day there are headlines in the news that "should" motivate each of us to prepare as quickly as we can.

Survival planning isn't just for "the other guy." Stuff happens to all of us. Unemployment, hurricane season, floods, storms that knock out power, and other disasters happen fairly often somewhere in the world.

Numerous articles have stated that the entire world is only 3 days away from starvation - meaning, in 3 days after a disaster there would be no more food in the stores. This has actually happened in the recent past as disasters struck New York, Japan, Indonesia and other places around the world.

So let me help you prepare for the ups and downs that inevitably come with life on this planet.

Where to start:

The 4 (high Level) steps of Preparedness:

  1. Put away enough supplies to last at least 14 days (providing evacuation is not required).
  2. Then put away enough supplies to last 3 to 6 months (staying where you are or moving to another location where you have stashed these supplies).
  3. Long term: Store enough food and supplies to last many years.
  4. Long, long term: develop the skills and ability to provide food, water, clothing, and shelter for your family for 20 years.

Disasters usually come without warning - inflation creeps up on us slowly.

Don't be vulnerable. Plan ahead using the emergency preparedness tips found throughout this web site.

You could be forced to evacuate your home, office or school. Or you could be confined to your home by a disaster.

Prepare NOW because . . . if you hear it on the 6 o'clock news, it's already too late.

What are the craziest places to grow veggies?

No yard for even a little garden space? Container vegetable gardening is the solution to any gardening obstacles. You can be a backyard gardener and harvest your own crops even if you don't have a backyard. Land is optional. All you really need is a doorstep, a balcony, or a patio.

Complete Nutrition in 6 Easy Steps

Growing sprouts is an easy project and well worth the small effort. Why sprouts? Sprouting seeds increases the vitamins (A, B complex, C and E) and minerals many times because of the nutrients released while they grow.

Storing and Cooking Legumes (Beans)

The legume family (or beans to most of us) includes lentils, peas and peanuts. These foods are the richest source of vegetable protein and are a good source of both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. Because they are nutritious, easy to store, and can be "problematic" to our digestion, we need to buy and try different varieties and learn to cook with them. I'll show you how versatile they can be in your everyday cooking.

Step-by-Step Plan to Fill Your Pantry Using Only Your Grocery Budget

How to Store Water: Best Containers + Water Storage Myths

Water storage is THE MOST important preparation we can make. Definitely food is important, but we need water to cook that food, water to drink, clean, and to grow our food.

Portable Toilet for Emergency Sanitation

T A portable toilet (port-a-potty) comes in handy as emergency sanitation or for camping. Having some sort of port-a-potty may be one of the most important and least thought of aspects of survival planning.

Dehydrating Foods At Home

Dehydrating foods at home can be a fun and rewarding skill. Save money by buying fruits and vegetables in season and in bulk and dehydrate them yourself. Or, even better, grow them in your own garden. When you dehydrate your own foods, you will know for sure what goes into them - no chemical preservatives or fillers and more nutrition.

Recipe Ingredients for Your Food Storage

You will want to have these food products on hand because most are necessary for completing any recipe. Purchase them when they are on sale and add to your 3-month pantry supplies.

How to Use Powdered Eggs in Everyday Cooking

Have you ever tried using powdered or crystalized eggs in your recipes? Well, I have and I was surprised that they actually taste good. One of my favorite things about powdered eggs is that you always have eggs when you're ready to cook with them.

Storing Fats and Oils

Storing fats and oils long term requires defining "long term" - which I'll do in a moment. The problem with storing any fats and oils is oxidation - exposure to oxygen causes rancidity. Rancidity has been implicated as a cause of cancer (a carcinogen), heart disease, and atherosclerosis. On the other hand, fats are important for our health. They add [...]

Emergency Heating

It's only logical to consider emergency heating in your survival plan as many disasters involve weather that may knock out your electricity and that means, your furnace. It could be a real challenge to stay warm when the furnace hasn't worked for days due to winter storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, etc.
