Do you remember the “Shemitah” back in 2015? Johnathan Cahn began talking about financial judgment that would be coming, and Perry Stone was preaching on the rapture, John Hagee on the blood moons, and Rick Joyner on being prepared?
Well, whether I agree or disagree with their ideas, let's just say they inspired me to get set up with emergency supplies. I quickly saw the multitude of products and options that you could spend thousands of dollars on... and still get eaten by a bear!
I decided to focus on items I deemed essential, that I could still put to use if the world didn't tear itself apart at the seams: extra food, water filtration and a way to obtain water. Plus, some solar lights and a solar cell charger.*
Now that we've successfully made it to 2018 alive, I have to say I'm still delighted with my prep purchases. I didn't splurge on freeze dried food or MRES, instead, we purchases a few extra canned goods and dried food items every time we'd shop to slowly build up a store house. I also purchased water purification tabs which could be essential in an emergency. The solar lights became a great teaching tool for my children and I love my water barrel for gardening!
Ready.org had some great, simple, ideas that I missed like anti-bac wipes and recommended having one gallon of water per person per day for at least 3 days. We’ve all witnessed just how quickly water is cleared off of grocery store shelves before an impending storm, so stocking up a little bit each week will save you a headache and provide peace of mind the next time snowpocalypse is coming your way.
After the last hurricane season, this seems to be increasingly important. When Harvey and Irma hit, the world watched in fear as people were stuck for days. Water can easily become contaminated or simply unavailable with the loss of electricity. Thankfully, when disaster strikes, there are always amazing people who help strike back. Our sponsor this week, My Patriot Supply was there assisting Floridians obtain pure water with theirAlexapure Pro off the grid water filtration system (and its only $24.99!!). Their websites awakens the prepper in me- heirloom seeds, cooking equipment, and food kits… maybe I need to take up camping to justify some more purchases!
What’s in your emergency stash? Did I miss anything that I’ll severely regret after a major storm?
Have a great week!
