Do you only own an electric can opener?  Well, if you store any food at all, it is likely that a lot of it is in cans.  What would happen if you no longer had electricity?  It may only be for a few days, or it may be longer.  But would you be able to get to the food in those cans?

If you don’t yet have one, pick up a manual can opener on your next trip to the store!  Easy Peasy!

10 minute preparedness project: Get a Manual Can Opener:

I’ve found that there are lots of reasons that keep people from becoming better prepared or more self-reliant.  But as a young mom, one of the top reasons is time or rather a lack of time.

But really, I don’t think we young moms are alone…

I think that many, if not most, in our fast-paced society feel that time slips through their fingers regularly.  And when feeling rushed and anxious, it can be difficult to invest time in becoming more prepared and self-reliant.
