Month Five in Review and Month Six Preps

I achieved all of my Month Five Preps with the exception of #6 - the exercise component. I still need to work on being better with that. But I have more cash in my BOBs and vehicles, food storage containers, lots of new additions to my food storage, and more matches and toilet paper stocked.

Month six of my Prepping Plan is going to be fun. I'm feeling flush since Hubby Dear suggested we increase our prepping budget by about 40%. You could have knocked me over with a feather when he told me that. Not that he actually believes in this stuff. Nope, he doesn't think this is necessary even after reading One Second After. We're debt-free now and he is proud that I was able to stick to my prepping budget for five months so we could get there. Gotta love him! :)

So, this is what I'm thinking of for November:
  1. More cash for our BoBs.
  2. Stock up on oil and wicks for my oil lamps.
  3. Buy a box of exam gloves for potential medical emergencies
  4. Buy a quality hand grain mill. This one I'm really excited about.
  5. Buy a case of dry milk. I've been putting this one off for a while.  
  6. Pick up some freeze-dried and dehydrated odds and ends for food storage and bread making.
  7. Exercise at least three times per week.

  1. I can't wait to hear which grain mill you get!

    Sounds like you're making wonderful progress -- keep up the good work (and thanks for sharing the inspiration)!
