10 minute preparedness project: Get a Manual Can Opener: https://simplefamilypreparedness.com/?p=8109

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!

Lack of Time

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 us 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.
