As the wife of a combat wounded Army Veteran, I've heard about how we should be more prepared and there is always a lot more we can do to be ready. While I am not ready to start digging a bunker just yet, here are a few things you can do to be a bit more prepared.
- Coupon and/or stockpile staples. I love to buy rice and canned foods when I can get great deals!
- Buy emergency staples like freeze dried or dehydrated food
- Stock up on water
- Make sure you have cooking supplies that aren't dependent on electricity
- Have a stash of first aid supplies and essential gear
Another great source that we found is Emergency Essentials. You can request a catalog or browse their website. They have an awesome compilation of things for preparedness from water to camping to MREs and garden seeds to Group Specials. You can even get Yoders Canned Bacon!
Be sure to check out their Closeout & Overstock Page too.
