I know that I have given you different Internet addresses in the past for emergency preparedness sites and heaven only knows how many I have visited (put the Internet down and back away slowly), but you gotta visit this one – and make sure that you take your kids with you. Check it out on Ready or Not #48: Ready.gov.
Ahhh, another new year. Another start over – and lots more stuff. Whether you received a lot of new things for Christmas or not, we all have things around our house that create clutter that we need to throw away, give away, or recycle. Read our Ready or Not #166: De-Junking to get tips to clear out all that unwanted and unnecessary junk!
For all of you out there putting, “1. Build family food storage” on your list of New Years resolutions this year, I am here to help you, literally – and in person! Connie McVey and I are going to be teaching adult education classes on food storage in February; it will be food storage on a whole new level! Stop changing your family’s diet to conform to somebody else’s idea of what you should have in your food storage! Instead, build your food storage around what your family likes to eat.
Connie and I will teach you new ways to look at, revamp and build your own tailor-made food storage inexpensively. We will teach you how to use our FREE on-line food storage building program with worksheets, available at www.apreparedhome.com, to determine what, and how much, you really need. This class will be held twice a week for two weeks at Salem Hills High School (Feb. 3,4, 10, 11) and again at Springville High School (Feb. 17, 18, 24, 25). We will also be giving tips on how to store and where to store your extra food and tips on water storage with plans to build your own water filtration system. To sign up go to: www.nebo.edu/communityschool or call (801) 354-7418. See you there!
