Preparedness Challenges

I've been participating in a challenge from Preparedness Pro's blog to not hit the store for anything for 2 weeks during the month of August. We're almost done with it, and I thought I should have given you all a heads up about it before it started so you could join in, but alas, the no posting time and lack of coherent thinking this month led to it not getting posted about--sorry! I'll let you know how our 2 weeks went when we're done, but in the meantime, I thought I'd let you know about a 7 day preparedness challenge put together by the gals at Food Storage Made Easy. It will be happening sometime in September--check here for all the details. Should be fun! And if you sign up for it, make sure to put me as your referrer so we can both be entered to win a wheat grinder! :)

This type of challenge is one of the best ways to check your preparedness levels, so play along and see how you do and where you can improve.

Wow, good for you, I can't wait to hear how your two weeks went. I have lots of food storage, but I'd still be scared to go a whole week or even two! I guess it is a good test :S

Sounds like a good way to test the preps. I too am looking forward to the after action report.

I think that's something we all should do from time to time...just in case!

So glad you accepted the challenge! It's definitely more "convenient" to take this test now rather than in the midst of an emergency. Thanks for blogging about your experiences. Also, don't forget to share your experiences on our blog so you can be entered to win emergency preparedness prizes! There's no limit to how many comments you can leave and each comment counts as an entry. http://bit.ly/15o7rm

Thanks for the link. It sounds fun! I finally dug out my pantry this weekend and can now see the obvious holes in my food storage. Time to start a list.
