Summer Project...72 Hour Kits

Well it is official...summer is here!  I spent most of yesterday being lazy and lounging around my house in PJ's with my kids all day and it felt GREAT!!  Even though summer is here, I have a list of projects that I want to work on...crafts, preparing for next school year, organizing things around the house, becoming more healthy (you know...fruits and veggies!), camping and spending time with the family, making a (blue jean) quilt and putting together 72 hour kits for my family from How Does She?

Although it seems a bit overwhelming to just jump into I know that it is essential that I feel prepared.  I plan to check out the dollar store/Target dollar spot, etc. to look  for some of these items.  I also know that I don't have to buy everything at once...a gradual process.  One tip a friend gave me on this idea is to buy the backpacks in September...after school has started and they go on sale.  To find a list of items that were put in (Missy's) backpacks, click on the link above.  She has done a great job at breaking everything down and explaining why having a 72 hour pack ready in a great idea.

I'm hoping to work on those kits soon, too! :)

Thanks for commenting on my blog today, with the suggestion for cleaning! :) I'm scared to try anything, but I've got to do something! :)

After the breakdown of the air pocket economy, in any case, those parcels couldn't be discarded to remake advances in light of the fact that the costs of the area fell essentially and banks have been obliged to hold the parcels with deteriorated values. cash advance san-diego
