One of the most frustrating results of a power outage is losing the food in your fridge and freezer.  If your power goes out, you want your freezer foods to last as long as possible.
One thing you can quickly do NOW that will help the food in your freezer last a bit longer during a power outage is to add some frozen water bottles to your freezer.  Add one or two per shelf.  They can be just 16.9 oz drinking bottles or larger juice bottles, but add a few.  This will h elp your freezer stay cooler longer should the need arise!  This is especially essential if your freezer isn’t full!   Shouldn’t take you but a few minutes!  Easy Peasy!

One “disaster” that most all of us will face at some point is a power outage.  It may last a few hours, a few days, or even a few weeks, but it will likely happen to each of us at some point.


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.

10 Minute Preparedness Projects!

But very one of us can find 10 minutes, right?  Every few weeks, I challenge myself to spend 10 minutes on preparedness and self-reliance and I invite you to join me!   Simple, right?
