Storage and Emergency Tips

I have collected a few home storage and 72-hour kit packets over the years. I have a couple that show things to focus on storing each week of the year and I have a couple that give suggestions for each month. I'm going to share what they say for August.

One of the monthly packets is called "The Noah's Ark Project". The storage goals for August are:

~ 100 quarts fruit and/or vegetables per person
~ 24 pints of jam or jelly per person
~ feminine needs
~ school supplies
~ pet supplies

There are also suggestions for provident living and being spiritually prepared. These suggestions are:
~ have family home evening every Monday night
~ fathers can give a Father's Blessing to their children before school
~ learn to preserve food in a way you haven't tried before

For 72-hr kits:
~ the focus is getting enough food for everyone in the family (remember to
rotate every 6 months)
~ also, getting disposable plates, cups, bowls, and silverware
~ pet supplies - dishes, leash, extra water
