I received this guest post submission a couple of weeks ago, and I’ve been looking forward to sharing it with you ever since. It was submitted by Kate from Missouri, and I have to say, I can’t wait to put these recipes to use. I’ve been making wheat berries since Don Pectol taught me the easiest way to use wheat, and I think I can use the same method to cook some oat groats for these recipes. Thanks, Kate! --Sarah Oatmeal is a staple storage food for many families, and for good reason. Preparedness Pantry - Food Storage, Emergency Preparedness, Emergency Kits, Water Storage

The Gift of Preparedness Black Friday deals are great, but the last place you’ll find me this time of year is in a store full of morons rushing to pick up a $3 toaster. With that being said, I’m still always on the look out for good Christmas time deals. It’s a great time to stock up, and an even better time to give the gift of preparedness to those who may not be prepared. Instead of buying your friends and family a bunch of useless crap this year, why not give them the gift of preparedness? Need some ideas on how to make your friends and family more prepared?

Waterproof Dryer Lint Fire-Starter
I have seen many examples of fire starters, but I wanted to try and make one that was made out of only primitive materials. I wanted to make sure that it was small and waterproof. Also, it could be used with any primitive coal producing method of fire making, like the hand drill or bow drill, as well as more modern methods, like steel and flint, Ferrocerium Rods, matches and lighters. Here is what I did . . . . Supplies: 1. Bees wax melted in a double boiler 2.

Fire Starter Burning stuff is fun, so what better excuse to burn stuff than to do research on making fire starters? It's also fun to make fires in primitive or interesting ways, like with the sun or by friction or with sparking tools. But, for those times when you just want a good fire and you want it fast, you should have some items handy to help make that fire fast. Here's a list of some fire starters and helpers that you can find or make. Have fun! These things should be kept in ziploc baggies to keep them dry and to keep the rest of your gear clean.
Having the means to make a fire in a moments notice is essential in a survival situation. An external heat source can help deflect hypothermia, or even cook a hot meal when you really need it. Carrying firestarters with you while you are away from home can be a great way to add a little survival insurance to whatever situation you happen to find yourself in. To save a few dollars, I make my own fire starters out of household items that I would normally throw away. To be thorough in my preparedness endeavors, I have put them in each of my family’s 72 hour kit, in our vehicle emergency supplies, and in our camping gear. How to Make Homemade Fire Starters
Today's guest post comes from Hannah's sister, Emma. I know that this isn't necessarily "food storage", but of course being prepared covers many aspects, including having enough laundry soap to get you through at least 3 months! And as far as saving money goes, this looks like the way to go. Homemade laundry detergent is cheap to make (it costs about 3 cents a load) and works really well. My mom warned me that it doesn't make suds or bubbles and some people thinks that means their clothes aren't clean. How to: make homemade laundry detergent
