I actually considered not linking from Rocks in my Dryer so I wouldn't have to do an enormous amount of stomach crunches. But I decided to anyway. I'll just have to split up my crunches throughout the day. I have been a faithful Latter-day Saint hoarding away my food storage and drinking water to prepare my family in case of emergency. A few things that work for me:
1. Store powdered Gatorade to use with your emergency drinking water. If you have to boil your water, this will make it much more palatable. I figured out this one on my own. I m smrt.
2. Store Nestle Quik to go with your powdered milk if you don't like the taste of prepared powdered milk. (I just acquired this handy knowledge this last Sunday from a gal at church.) Or if you prepare your family like my sister, she gradually got her whole family used to the taste by mixing store-bought milk with mixed up powdered milk until they could drink it straight.
Updated note: Milehimama stores Ovaltine with her powdered milk because it has more vitamins. Very smart!
3. Use empty milk gallons for emergency flushing water. Be sure to write on them with a permanent marker what it's for. Pour gallon of water into a bucket. Use to flush. Here in the Frozen North, this has come in handy. There have been times when we've had the water turned off for maintenance or frozen pipes and whatnot. At one point I was tired of seeing three dozen gallons of water in my storage room, so I used two dozen to water the garden. And then I recycled the gallons.
I love emergency storage tips. So, if you have some, please share. I would love to expand my knowledge and preparedness. Thanks for stopping by!
