7 DAY CHALLENGE

Home / 7 DAY CHALLENGE

The Seven Day Challenge is our way of celebrating National Emergency Preparedness Month in September. Over the years we have done things a little differently each time. However the main concept has always been the same. The challenge is made up of practicing and analyzing your preparedness skills and storage for 7 days. Concepts covered in the preparedness cycle are covered and we always have a great time! Make sure you’re signed up for our checklists email list so we can notify you of when the challenge will be coming up each September.

  • I tried to sign up, but it looks like the link for the Submit button is broken. I’d like to sign up!

    • looks like the image is broken, but you can still click on it and it should submit. hmmm wonder why it is doing that!

    • I had to try several times, but it finally worked. It appears that their sever is really really slow to repsond so it times out.

    I cannot find where you could submit a challenge, but once – and only once – my husband and I went hiking with our 7 month old in a carrier, and got lost. We found the car – we just couldn’t figure out what dirt road would take us out of the mountains from my husband’s newest “great” trail (not a trail at all).  We ended up staying overnight in the car with our screaming 7 month old because it got dark.  If we didn’t have a 72 hour emergency kit (and I wasn’t breast feeding) I don’t know what we would have done.  The only thing we forgot (and really needed) was the sunblock.  I had put in on before the 4 hours we were going to be gone….

    Can I purchase a binder. I do not want to download it.

    • Unfortunately we only offer it as a digital file. If you would like to order it on a disc we can mail you the disc, but you would still need to print it out and provide your own binder. Let us know if that would work for you and I can give you details on how to order the disc. Thanks!

    So often when things are difficult or challenging, we need to take the baby steps and I love how easily Food Storage Made Easy helps to prepare you. I am knew at this yet i feel confident with the steps provided to help me with being prepared.

  • I’m brand new to FoodStorageMadeEasy, though my mom was really into storage and preparedness growing up so I’m not exactly a novice. I’m excited to give this a try and see how we do! We’re in one of those basement-apartment-resulting-in-VERY-little-storage-space situations, but, much to my husband’s chagrin, that has not made me any less determined to be prepared for any and all emergencies that I can think of. So excited!

    Hi, I did a two month Challenge in February and March. While I didn’t go without using various utilities during that time, I didn’t go to the store and relied entirely on my food storage. It was fun, a great learning experience, and something I’m planning on doing again next year. Good luck to everyone

    I enjoy your site and visit it daily. I have a suggestion. I am working hard to be prepared but it occurred to me that spiritual preparedness is very important, too. I know your understand this, but I haven’t seen any info on this on any of the lds sites I visit. I am setting a challenge for myself to not only have my 3 month supply ready but to be spiritually stronger and prepared as well.

      We have started buying different Bibles and study books. That way our daughter and us will always have his guidance. We have also found a place in our home to hind those items where they can’t be found. I will never be without his word. Look for a spot to keep things like that safe.

      I prepared for this by putting together sermon studies on hardship, When we went through an earthquake in 2010 i found a church sermon on this (tho we did not have a church building anymore) to be crucial. Especially backed up in scripture, it’s hard to research the bible when you’re stressed. =]
