Berkey Water Filtration System

Water filtration is a hot topic these days, especially considering how many unnecessary elements are in tap water. Did you know you can look up what elements are currently found in your county’s tap water, and at what levels those elements are found?

Dry Canning Rice

Dry canning is a great way to make sure your grains keep much longer than just having them in the plastic bag in which you purchased them. Dry canning removes any bacteria from the rice, along with any bug eggs. To dry can rice, fill jars with rice leaving about 1/2 inch head space. Place […]

Are Your Pets Prepped?

Yes, your pets, and in some cases (like mine) your other children. Are you fully prepared for their needs should something happens that requires you to stay put or leave immediately?

Get Out of Debt!

Yes! Let’s all do this! We need to be able to purchase items we actually NEED instead of being forced to pay our insanely high credit card bills each month! Forget high interest… just get out of debt. So, my husband and I recently did this… aside from our house payment (mortgage and a home […]

Sleeping When It Hits

This is something that I have thought about quite a lot. Sleeping when it hits. Weird thing to think about, because sleep tends to come naturally in everyday life. But when something catastrophic actually happens, will sleep (and being awake when required) actually come naturally? Consider a disaster scenario… let’s just run with the aftermath […]

Let’s Talk Gas Masks

Gas masks are a great thing to have for those of us who are worried about the future, live near major cities that could be targets, or just want to be prepared for absolutely anything. I realize most people already know about gas masks in general, so what I really want to highlight here are […]
