The Prepardeness Challenge

I just came across this article from a blog I follow called Homestead Revival.  There are all kinds of neat do it yourself things on her blog and I just like to poke around and see what’s new.  She had a blog post a few weeks ago (I missed it, sometimes having a toddler means I am several weeks behind on some things but always up to date Handy Manny and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse) that is a great challenge.  Being prepared was definitely a topic of discussion in our house a month ago due to the disaster in Japan.  More specifically the fallout that potentially could have reached the west coast.  Which is where were.  With an unborn baby to protect this occupied my thoughts.  Luckily we were spared but it brought up a useful theme, be prepared.

So take a look at this post.  I think it will be inspiring to you.  I plan on taking part in the challenge.  To me this challenge doesn’t mean buying something every week but also researching how to do things for yourself, teaching your children about emergency situations, collecting, sorting, cleaning and in general being alert and ready.  I remind myself that I am not doing this because I concerned that the end of the world is near but because we as a family are trying to get back to a simpler lifestyle, one that is a little more self sufficient.  Why?  Because we enjoy living this way.
