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?

Hip hip hooray, it’s almost May! It didn’t feel like it during the month, but I just realized that April has flown by. Wow! I’m going to go ahead and get my wee list up for this last week of the month, as I’m not sure what day a post will be up at The Prudent Homemaker. Congratulations to Brandy, who had a son just a few days ago – and to your whole family! Such exciting news! Continue reading
Try saying that five times fast, eh? 😀 I’m excited to share that my third article for The Organic Prepper has been posted. This time it’s about those creepy crawlies that can wreak havoc on our food storage. Pop on by and check it out – it’s entitled Dealing with Pantry Pests: Bugs. You’ll never look at your oatmeal the same again!
Daisy Luther has posted my second article submitted for her site, The Organic Prepper! It’s called Starting Over After a Disaster – but you might be surprised to learn that starting over actually starts before a disaster. Click on over and check it out! Please let me know what you think of it – I’d love your feedback.
(And yes, you can safely assume that I am insanely excited about this and would dearly love it if you share the link far and wide. LOL)
