What can you do with 550 cord?

550_cordI have found that if you do not have any 550 cord around, then you are not a survivalist!  No  am just kidding.  When I was in the Military I would find myself having tons of this (no not making the silly survival bracelets) but hanging up aprivacy barrier between cots, clothes line and etc.  It was awesome, just knowing I had some in my pack when we went on patrols. But understand this Continue reading “What can you do with 550 cord?”

Preparedness Plan!

Emergency-Preparedness-Checklist-1024x682This month for September I would like for you to take the time out and inventory your Emergency Plan!  Not only your plan but your equipment, food and your 72 hour kits!  I know when you are living on a budget it is very hard to come up with the money for all that you need.  Just know that if you SLOWLY take the time, you can find the great deals and piece together your kits and food.

Start with not drinking soda for a couple of days and use that money you saved towards your stuff.  The dollar store has tons of stuff to fill your kits.  All you have to do is look and you shall find.  Keep up the good work!

 

CHALLENGE:  See what you can do to take the BITE out of preparedness this month!  Good luck and always ask some questions
