Obviously, these things can be expensive to accumulate, so we work a line item into our budget and build our storage a little bit at a time. Awhile ago, we had a little unexpected extra money (how often does that happen??) and we decided to be smart with it and invest in some of our emergency funds. Long story short, I decided to make 72 hour car kits for both our cars (since those were on our list anyway) and today I am going to show you what I did! I mentioned last week about an activity that we had for Relief Society for our church. These food kits are wonderful because you can put them in the 2 gallon ziplock bags or seal them in mylar bags! In light of all the natural disasters that seem to be so prevalent, these food kits could literally save you and your family! With the holidays coming, these make great gifts for those that you love, and I honestly do not know of anyone who would not appreciate receiving a gift like this! I’m such a panic ridden person, I couldn’t help myself, and HAD to click on this link at the link party palooza! Committed to providing you and your family with the best survival knowledge, skills and equipment. Tip:  If you use mints keep them in a separate baggie or they will make your crackers taste like mint.  GOOD TO KNOW!
I had a thought…what about adding hardtack biscuits, and maybe some broth powder to flavor it, when you soak it so you can eat it? I work in homes that support people with disabilities and by licencing standards we have to have emergency food supplies.


Sidenote, I was going to share this on twitter but I didn’t see any social sharing buttons.
I just joined this blog site primarily for the subject matter, but also for the excellent way in which you used a simple photo to get your message across.
I enjoy reading your blog love your idea love to have excess to your sight thank you and god bless you. Hey Staff Writer, Awesome topic, Something easy to do with items we would have in the house anyway and if not go shopping for, Easy to stash and durable containers that double as water container if need be. I personally like the food list…my family would much rather eat these foods than try to choke down an MRI. That’s why we encourage you to make your own food selection, this is used as an example.
Please note that this is only a 72 hour comfort food supply, so I like to put in things I would like, this is in no way similar to my longer term food storage, which is geared to a longer survival period.
I forgot to ask do you put the water you need in this same container so it is all together?
This example is geared towards a camping or scouts trip, but you can add anything that fits your need.
If you remember this post about our financial plan, you know that we have a monetary emergency fund. Please note that this is only a 72 hour supply, so I like to put in some comfort foods, this is in no way similar to my longer term food storage, which is geared to a longer survival period.
Carbs are our enemy and we need to research the labels to find things to eat that will fit our needs.


Of course we cant let these foods go bad, so we keep a sheet on top of the bucket listing all the expiration dates so we can easly replace the items when they are close to expiring. Something like this, made for me and my bf’s tastes as suggested, will be perfect for putting safely in the boot when he gets his car. Putting them all together per day (or maybe even per meal for us) makes life simpler and protects the food from knocks and some pests. We are a collection of volunteers and starting a new initiative in a community in the same niche.
When all these things are in place, even if you lost your job you would be able to live comfortably and without added stress while searching for something else. I was super happy with the kits, but as I went through them I realized that it could be duplicated pretty easily with things you most likely have on hand. Extra water purification tablets as well as water… sounds like I have my next weekend project!
If you are someone like me, living in an Apartment with limited space; then this is Perfect in a pinch.
Thanks to the poster for putting the time and energy into shedding some light on one way to help from becoming a tragic statistic by actually preparing for emergencies instead of running around like a headless chicken when disaster strikes.
