Prep-101 Month #2: Water

This month in Prep-101, we will focus on water.  Water is absolutely essential to life.  You will not survive more than 3 days without water.  We need water to drink, to be sanitary, for cleaning wounds, for laundry.  It is essential.   Yet, I think this incredibly important topic often gets overlooked for a few reasons:

  1. We can’t truly imagine life without water.  We use it all day, every day, it is next to free and we tend to take it for granted.
  2. If you get past #1, you start to realize that you will need a LOT of water and it can be overwhelming to know where to start.

 

My purpose / goal this month is to make water storage / purification as do-able as possible.  I want to take the “I’m SO OVERWHELMED” feeling out of the picture and give you clear and simple goals for your family.   We will talk about water storage, water filtration and water purification.  I will share ideas that are less expensive but more time consuming along with more expensive, but less time consuming ideas.

 

Here is a summary of what you can expect this month.  And don’t forget to enter the giveaway!

 

Why Store Water:

It is essential to life.  You cannot live for long with out water.  Water can be shut off for a number of reason.  It may also become contaminated for a number of reasons.  Most everyone will need to live without running water for at least a brief period of time.
