What To Expect

Now that we’ve established the purpose of this blog, here’s what you can expect from it (and me) on a weekly basis. Each day of the week (M-F) will have a separate theme (COD freak, remember?) to help us accomplish all areas of our goals as well as educate ourselves along the way. Granted, I likely won’t be able to get something posted every day (after all, I’m first and foremost a mommy and wife), but the basic layout will go like this:
Monday: Food For Thought
This is where we can discuss important issues, review motivational quotes from religious and other leaders, etc. We’ll also have some nice heart-to-hearts about the whole food storage/self-reliance process and why this is so important.
Tuesday: “Food Storage…”
Delving into the basics (and eventually the not-so-basics) of food storage. This will include things like planning what you need, how much you need, how to get it and what to do with it once you have it, and other great food storage information.
Wednesday: What’s For Dinner?
Sharing great recipes that can be made entirely from your food storage.
Thursday: “…And Beyond”
Learning how to be self-reliant beyond just our food storage. We’ll learn emergency preparedness information, including: first aid, first aid kits, evacuation planning, sheltering in place, knowing what to do in an emergency, 72-hour kits, etc; and other general information that will help you on your way to self-reliance, including: gardening, good equipment to have on hand, etc.
Friday: Feature Friday!
I will be on the hunt for cool ideas, awesome lessons, great products, etc that others have to share and I will feature them on Fridays. This way we can all share and learn from the experiences and knowledge of so many others as well!
Although, occasionally I think I’ll do a Frugal Friday (it’s my blog and I’ll change it if I want to!) that will spotlight a great way to save some money (because I think we can all use a little more of that right now!) 😉
And just for fun, I will occasionally throw in a “Houston, We Have A Problem” Saturday. I will throw an emergency situation at you and you can evaluate how prepared you are to handle it. This will help you get an idea of where you are in your preparedness and determine if there are any changes that need to be made.
So buckle your seatbelts and hold on! We’re heading for some fun!
