If you aren’t already familiar with Rogue Preparedness, you’re in for a treat! Well known for her YouTube channel, Morgan also has a steady stream of great information going out via her website and social media channels like Instagram. She has released several eBooks already, and I’m excited to share her brand new release with you – not only because it’s an awesome book, but because I had the pleasure of providing her with some editorial feedback during its writing.
Head on over and get your copy of Family Preparedness 101 – How to Prepare Your Family for Emergencies & Disasters now. For less than the cost of a fancy holiday coffee, you’ll learn all kinds of great information for helping your family get better prepared, especially if you have children or pets. Be sure to check out her freebies, previous books, and online courses as well. There’s so much to learn from Morgan! Enjoy!
Wildfire season definitely has begun in my area. Other regions have already begun seeing the problems caused by tropical storms, prior to the “official” beginning of hurricane season. It’s got me thinking about the what-ifs yet again.
What if we had to get out of the house in the middle of the night due to wildfire, with only the items in our vehicle and on our backs? What if flood waters were rising and authorities told us we had enough time to grab purses, pets, and car keys? What if a tornado decimated the house, but the cars were miraculously okay just feet away? What if a localized power outage struck at work or school, and you needed to use what was available for an hour or two while the professionals reset something?
Time to review what’s in the rigs, and to get folks thinking about what they might want to add to their cars. To wit, here’s my list of the top ten things to put in your vehicles – not counting a car emergency kit, which is an entity unto itself. Continue reading
Have you seen my new article over at The Organic Prepper yet? It combines two subjects I will gladly gab about for ages: home education and emergency preparedness. Woohoo!
It’s entitled “5 Things Preppers Should Know About Homeschooling”. Swing on by and give it a read – I’d love to know what you think of it!
Hello out there! As some of you may recall, I’m working on a nonfiction book entitled Prepare Anywhere. Life, however, sometimes means that a part-time writer needs a bit more parts of time than originally expected. 😉 While this manuscript is in progress, I enjoy giving little snippets and sneak peeks to those who are interested – and with summer coming, I know a lot of you will be attending events and traveling all over the place. I thought I’d share a few things that will help you feel more prepared for any upcoming trips, or give you ideas of things to look for at touristy spots that you can check off as both fun and preparedness-related. As for the number I chose? Well, that’s just because it’s May 16th and I thought it would be a fun way to make a list. Remember – I’m all about preparing on a dime and in small spaces, so don’t feel like you have to spend big bucks and please, please, please don’t whip out the credit cards to do any of this! Do what you can with what you have, mmkay?
So let’s get going, shall we?
Happy Monday, everyone! Time for another Frugal Accomplishments update. I have a fairly short list this week, but some of the things brought us a lot of happiness, so I’ll take ’em. 😉 If you’d like to pop by and see Brandy and her other readers for some more encouragement, you can find her post for the week here.
As for me and my house – last week we saved with the following: Continue reading
