    TOP TEN THINGS TO HAVE: WINTER EMERGENCY

    TOP TEN THINGS TO HAVE: WINTER EMERGENCY

    Winter is a dangerous season, often with unpredictable turns in weather and unreliable forecasts. We’ve chosen 10 top things to have on hand in case of a winter emergency, such as a blizzard or ice storm, or windy power-outage. With the ten things we’ve chosen, you may feel safe from the threats of this winter.

    1. Food Storage & Emergency Stove: It is important to have good, reliable food storage on hand that is imperishable and can be prepared without power, given the chance of a power outage. Freeze dried and dehydrated food is ideal, which can be prepared by just adding water. Purchasing an emergency stove will heat the food and cause it to cook faster. It can also be used as a source of warmth.
    2. Power Alternative Heater: During a winter storm, temperatures drop below freezing, and if the power goes out you will need a power alternative heater. If you have a fireplace, make sure to have a lot of dry wood on hand.
    3. Water Supply: With temperatures below freezing, you may have to turn off your main water source to keep your pipes from freezing and bursting. This kind of damage can really cost you, so it is best to turn off the water and use an alternative clean water supply during a storm.
    4. First Aid Kit: If the weather is bad and you are stuck inside, you will need a first aid kit for any injuries that may occur. Risking the intense weather conditions can be more harmful than helpful.
    5. Candles and Flashlights: Make sure you have an alternative light source as well. Keep both candles and flashlights on hand, and if the flashlights are battery operated, make sure you have a good supply of batteries.
    6. Medicine: Make sure you have some medicine stocked up, and check the expiration dates.
    7. Powerless Radio: Keep a power alternative radio, battery or hand powered. It is vital to stay in touch with what is happening outside, so you know the threats and what the community is doing to help.
    8. Communication: Keep your cell phones charged. Don’t lose communication with the outside world. Investing in a generator is a good idea, because it is impossible to know for sure how long a storm or power outage will last.
    9. Snow Shovels: Obviously, there’s a chance you will have to dig your way out of your home once the storm passes. Keep a good sturdy shovel or two to help clear away damage.
    10. Matches & Pocket Knife: These emergency essentials are a must-have.

    With these items on hand, you can rest easy. And remember, the most important thing is to keep calm and stay inside. Winter storms pass in time.

    FOOD SUPPLY AND DISASTER PREP ON A BUDGET

    FOOD SUPPLY AND DISASTER PREP ON A BUDGET

    Preparing for a disaster can be stressful, not to mention costly, and many people find it difficult to spend money on food storage and survival gear they may or may not ever use. What’s important to remember, however, is that these items give more than just peace of mind, they are an investment in your future and well being, and might just keep you alive someday. You can do some disaster preparation of your own that can give you what you need while fitting your budget.

    The first thing to consider is prioritizing and deciding what to spend your money on. Once you start looking at survival gear it’s easy to get sucked into buying a whole lot of emergency supplies you probably won’t need. Take a look at this list of the important things you really need, so you can survive with the basics, staying within your budget.

    1. Food – Food storage is a must-have. While a lot of disaster prep gear can be done cheaply, it’s a smart idea to spend money on good food storage worth your while. We would recommend at least a 3-6 month supply. Food storage doesn’t have to be expensive or difficult, our food storage subscription plans start at $61 and have the option to cancel anytime. Now you can start building your supply at a price that fits any budget.

    Also, filler foods like our freeze-dried fruit and vegetables are perfect to keep you energized through the day. The quality of your meals is always important, especially during stressful disasters. Long term food storage is something you are going to need and that you will not regret purchasing wisely.

    1. Water – Don’t depend on sinks or refrigerators. Invest in an alternate clean water source. Buying water in bulk can get pricey, especially if there are shipping costs, so look for a local seller. Other options are water treatment drops and filters. Some people even dig wells in their yards and buy water filters and bottles to keep costs down. If you need stackable containers check these out from WaterBrick.
    2. Heat – You don’t need to spend a lot of money on a non-electric heater if you are on a budget. Just invest in a good amount of firewood and store it somewhere dry. You can find cheap blankets just about anywhere to layer up and keep warm. Blankets are also useful for stuffing around doors and windows to keep the cold outside.
    3. First Aid – First aid kits aren’t very expensive if found in the right place. You can even put one together on your own, there are many websites available online to walk you through it. Make sure to have bandages, medicines, antibiotic ointments, latex gloves, and sterilized gauze. First Aid kits can be easy to put together and can save you money.
    4. Light – There are many cheaper substitutes for big expensive lanterns. The obvious choice is candles, which you can buy cheaply in bulk. If you’re looking to be a little more creative, however, head down to a hardware store and pick up solar powered garden lights. These won’t put off as much light as expensive LED lanterns, and are not designed for disaster prep, but with enough of them around your house, you can see just enough without the danger of an open flame. You can buy these for as little as $1.00 each and you don’t have to waste money on batteries.

    Preparing for a disaster can be expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. Following these guidelines should make it easier for you to prepare without stretching your budget. Prioritizing with the basics and knowing where to invest your money gets you what you need, and gives you the opportunity to survive a disaster, and keep some money in your pocket.

    THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE? PREPARE WITH EMERGENCY FOOD, IT'S REALLY NOT THAT WEIRD.

    THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE? PREPARE WITH EMERGENCY FOOD, IT'S REALLY NOT THAT WEIRD.

    Often, when I tell people I work in the food storage and prepping business, somewhere in the conversation that then tails this information, the so-called 'zombie apocalypse' is brought up. You'd be surprised by how many people actually consider this their number one motivation for prepping, or at least wanting to prep.

    So, what's this whole zombie apocalypse thing really about? Let me try to explain. We've all heard of the media inspired walking dead with a cannibalistic taste for human flesh, and the domino effect of the infected. It's definitely been blown up in the cinematic spotlight reaching audiences all around the world who truly find this concept a worst case scenario/nightmare.

    And really, the general idea of a zombie apocalypse is not that outlandish. It's about an infectious disease that spreads faster than a cure can be created and proven safe. This has happened a lot in history. It's about humans who lose their grasp of reality and start to eat each other (okay, not so common of an issue, but still, relevant to rabies and other such illnesses). The outbreak causes mass-panic and civilization erupts with anarchy; this has happened before.

    Preparing for a zombie pandemic is like preparing for most crises: prepare so that you can hide out until it passes and trust only yourselves with the rations and supplies you've smartly collected independently of the government, since - let's face it - there's way too many people and not enough life boats. It's sort of like a societal fallout, when humans no longer behave like humans, and you can't risk being infected or killed.

    According to the Zombie Response Team, bug-out bags are one popular and easy way to prepare for a pandemic of sorts (Keep an eye out for our new bags coming in 2019. We are partnering with some of the best tactical companies in the industry to bring you the best gear to keep you surviving.). Mylar pouches are the best containers and cans are the worst thing to have. Don't get slowed down by heavy cans of food, our freeze dried MREs are perfect for fleeing the panic and grab-n-go buckets make it easy to evacuate fast. Our Emergency Food Kits are perfect for short term needs. If you want to hide out longer, check out our Long Term Food Storage with a 25 year shelf life. All our meals are prepared by simply adding water.

    Whether you're worried about zombies or not, preparing for chaos is always the best way to safeguard your role in the uncertain future. Please, don't eat people; eat My Food Storage meals!

    THE IMPORTANCE OF WATER

    THE IMPORTANCE OF WATER

    Water is the source of life on Earth. It's something we need in order to survive, an element we couldn't live without. But it's almost too simple. With all the sugar-packed and carbonated drinks we consume every day water can easily be forgotten. The fact that we need water to live is obvious, but what we would do without it is often overlooked. It's everywhere, after all. Gas stations and grocery stores, vending machines, fountains and pipes. But what about when none of these amenities are available to us?

    Disasters take many forms, but more often than not, our most basic modern amenities become unusable in a crisis. Have you ever seen a grocery store right before a snow storm? Imagine that times a hundred. In addition to storing long-term food, it's vital that we do not forget about our most precious life source - water. We can survive much longer without food than without water.

    We can't depend solely upon modern conveniences. It is important that we prepare for the life's uncertainties with all the things we need to survive and live well. Prepping is a big step toward empowering ourselves and relieving the anxiety caused by the future’s uncertainties. The threats are out there, and in wide variety. This is why My Food Storage provides high quality and affordable emergency supplies that make sense. We offer many products that can give you the clean water you need in a disaster situation. My Food Storage is offering 10% OFF all water purification products in August to celebrate Water Quality Month. Also, if you spend $100 on Food Storage you will get a FREE Aquamira Frontier Water Straw and if you spend $200 you will get an Aquamira Water Treatment Kit.
