Good Monday to you! While no one ever wants to be in a disaster, it is always a good idea to be prepared for emergencies. It is wise to have 3 months to a year supply of food on hand in case you lose your job. It is smart to have money saved for times when the refrigerator breaks.
I have been working on our 72 hour kits for my hubby and I. This is a natural disaster type of kit. We can pick this backpack and these buckets up on a moment’s notice and live fairly comfortably for three days.
Isn’t that fantastic? I will give you the list at the end of this post if you want some ideas to get your kits started:)
I really like using the buckets that you can buy at your local hardware store to hold evertything. I have added a cushioned top on it so it can be used for a stool as well. The cushion can also be a pillow if needed. How cool is that?!
My husband cut out some wood in a circle that fit the top. I had some old foam that I made a cover for out of old upholstery fabric I had in my stash. I stapled over the wood around the bottom. My husband screwed it onto the lid. PERFECT!!
I am so glad that I have these kits done. They are sitting on a shelf in my basement just waiting there in case we may need them someday.
Here is the list of supplies I put in our kits. Please feel free to print out as many of these as you need for you and your family:)
And here is my bullet journal page where I brain stormed to get everything organized:)
I hope you are inspired to stock up on a kit for you and your family. I would love to hear about it if you do:)
Have a super SWEET day!
