Are you prepared for upcoming emergencies? #motownmom #homesteading

I know you barely have enough to pay the bills and you’re not looking for another worry, but when emergencies happen we want to be proactive and not reactive

I’m not a prepper expert or some homesteading genius, but I’ve always been on my toes.

Perhaps being from Detroit made me like this. I also would say growing up with my father also put a little of it in me.

I love this graphic and even though it’s for power outage it’s good for almost everything.
  1. From every paycheck I would take 5 to 20 dollars and use it on emergency food and supplies
  2. I kept a list on Amazon of emergency supplies and when I had built up a fund I could use it
  3. I had a bag with copies of emergency papers and cards. For immunization records I would ask them for a duplicate (most times I could get them for free upon asking).
  4. There was always a go bag near the set of emergency papers. The kids knew if there was ever an emergency grab the bags and get out of the house.
  5. I had a pantry where at the bottom was the emergency food and medicine so I could do a FIFO and continually use it so it wouldn’t go bad.
  6. Dry packs and Ziplocks are life. Get them and put them in your emergency places to make sure your good, paperwork and supplies stay dry.

The picture above is just to get you started. Start with short term (72 hours) and then push it to six months, one year and finally a 3 to 5 year plan. This isn’t going to be something you can do over night. It took be about a good twenty years to really have a good five year plan and that includes extra land I could go to, a portable solar powered solution and I’m even going to invest in a fallout/panic room where I say and solar back up on my home.

Initially, if you can’t go with a large solar generator, you can always start with a smaller battery your car can charge or get a smaller battery rechargeable battery (at least 100w), and then an inverter that your solar panels can plug into as well.

This battery takes electrical and solar input. It’s enough to charge a laptop and phones, possibly a low powered cPap and keep a mini desk refrigerator running for about 8 hrs.

I like the two AC plugs the most because most units this size only come with one.

How many of these items do you have in your house right now?

Happy preparing for emergencies
