Think for just a moment what...

When I speak to people about their emergency preparedness state of readiness, inevitably the conversation begins with food storage.  In fact, for most individuals, food storage is what they think of when they hear “emergency preparedness.”  This is actually a bit of a problem, because food storage is only one aspect out of my Ten Areas of Readiness I teach about on a regular basis.  And yet not only do many feel that it’s the primary area of focus, but they are completely overwhelmed with the...

I pay a whopping $15.18 a month for FIVE Sunday newspapers.  I do this primarily for the coupons which afford me to feed our family well and feed our food storage abundantly.  I easily multiply my investment by 10 times each month just considering the grocery savings.  But the multiple other purposes I use the newspapers for after compound those rewards and even makes me eager to take spare newspapers off of another persons’ hands. Newspapers for an Emergency Use #1: You’ve no doubt heard of...

Ultimately, that’s what...
