Happy 5th Birthday to Food Storage Made Easy!

Events, Just For Fun
We passed our 5th blogiversary this summer and still kind of can't believe we have been at this for 5 YEARS!

September is National Preparedness Month!

Emergency Preparedness, Events
We love September as we celebrate National Preparedness Month with blog readers around the world. We have seen LOTS of ways you can get in on the fun and wanted to share a few of them here. We encourage everyone to jump in to events online, but also to organize or participate in local events, even just with your family and friends. Being prepared is so important for a whole community and this is a great time to start (or continue) that discussion. Food Storage Made Easy: 7 Day Challenge This year will be the FOURTH year that we have put on our 7 Day Challenge where we test our readers (and ourselves) on how prepared we all really are. It is always an eye-opening experience and helps us find…

Food Storage Made Easy Turns FOUR Years Old!

Events, Fun With Food Storage
This month we are celebrating our "4 years of Blogging" Birthday. It's crazy to think only 4 short years ago we had no food storage or even any idea of what food storage really was. We started this blog as a way to document everything we were learning, and since then, have come a long way. While we have learned a lot over the last 4 years, we still have so much we want to figure out. We never expected how much we would enjoy this adventure, and are thrilled at the many friendships we've built, and things we have learned from YOU our readers! So today, we're celebrating with all the typical things you would celebrate with at a Birthday Party as we look back on the last 4…

Powerless Cooking Event – LIVE RECORDING

Events, Powerless Cooking
We had so many readers ask if we could record our Powerless Cooking Event that we held earlier this month. We did a recording but weren't sure how the quality would work out. We've done a bit of editing and think that it is at least watchable and you can hear everyone, so we decided to post it, even though the quality isn't totally professional. We actually forgot to hit the record button so the beginning is a little funny because you miss half of the intro. Hope this is helpful if you have a spare hour to check it out. You can also download the FREE HANDOUTS we distributed at the class with tutorials on how to make your own inexpensive stoves and ovens. For more details on all…

Self Reliance Expo – Overview

Events
Last weekend we had the opportunity to attend the Salt Lake Self Reliance Expo. We were like kids in a candy shop at that event. There were SOOO many great things to learn about, people to talk about, and new products to see. We got a lot of answers solved that we have been stewing about for quite a while. If you are new to food storage, we highly recommend that you focus on food and water storage first (following our babystep checklists or Food Storage Made Easy all-inclusive ebook is a great way to get started). If you are feeling ready to move on to some scarier more advanced topics check out some of the great things we are going to be sharing with you over the next few…

ONLINE POWERLESS COOKING CLASS

ONLINE POWERLESS COOKING CLASS

Events, Powerless Cooking
Welcome to our Online Powerless Cooking Class. We recently held a live class on powerless cooking here in Utah. Since so many of you don't live here, and couldn't attend, we wanted to do this class for you. Instead of posting the full 2 hour video of our live class, we've made new mini videos that have better close ups. This way you can watch whichever portions are of interest to you little by little. Make sure watch NOW, print out the handouts, and add them to your Food Storage Made Easy binder ... WHILE YOU STILL HAVE POWER. This class is also going to be a great way to help all of us get ready to participate in our Summer Powerless Cooking Adventures! Download our class handout on Emergency…
