Valentine’s Day and Food Storage?

We made this post last year- but figured it’s still appropriate since it’s almost Valentines Day again and a lot of our readers have never seen this… If you made this last year remember to restock any foods (if your spouse hasn’t already sneaked them and ate them already). If you haven’t seen this before, then here you go….

Are you having a hard time deciding what to get your “special someone” for Valentines Day? Well worry no more. We have made it easy for you – and what’s better then the gift of preparedness? Send your loved one to work with a special 72 Hour Kit for the Office. We even made a contents list and cute little tag for you to attach to the container you gather the contents in.

For the tag – that reads “Because I always want you to be safe” and contents list, click here. As always, you may customize this list to meet your specific needs and don’t worry if you can’t get all the items at once. Put a few of the items in, and keep giving them extra “parts” as special surprises through out the year.

IN THE KIT (buy trial size if you can)
- food (protein bars, granola bars, beef jerky, candy, fruit roll ups)
- toothbrush/toothpaste
- washcloth/facewash/bodywash
- shampoo/conditioner
- razor/shaving cream/deodorant
- change of socks/underwear
- kleenex/wet wipes
- hand sanitizer
- travel-size first aid kit including small bottle of Tylenol
- work gloves
- rain poncho
- space blanket
- small flashlight with spare batteries
- a whistle (to draw the attention of rescue workers)
- carbon-filtering dust mask (for smoke, dust, debris, etc.)
- small novel
- small radio with spare batteries
- cash (small bills for vending machines)
- contents list

WITH THE KIT
- crow bar
- water

    I just moved to the DC area six weeks ago, and began to immediately work on my disaster kits and storage. Just in time! We were hammered with 30″ of snow. Nobody can get out to the store and the stores are likely to be depleted for the next few days. Already I'm dipping into my supplies. And the disaster backpack gives me great piece of mind. If the power goes out, I can take the pack with me to a shelter.

    So, for those thinking of doing food storage but are putting it off, don't put it off any longer! You don't need to wait until you can figure out super-duper shelves and special water drums. Even if you put a $2 case of Ramen noodles, a few canned veggies and a couple gallons of water in a box, it's a start. You never know what can happen or when. You can concentrate on longer-term containers later.

    I’ll admit, I chuckled when I read “crowbar.” My husband is an IT analyst and all I could picture him using the crowbar for was smashing some $%&^@! server that had crashed or prying open a large commercial printer that was jammed.

    My husband drives a vending truck here in Minnesota (snow!). I've been thinking of making him a car/truck kit, because his work doesn't give them phones or walky-talkies.
