Planning for the Future and Beyond

So we are already halfway through the second month of the year. I guess a little late for resolutions, but still a good time to start planning for the future. This year we have come to an agreement to pay off one vehicle by next year and the second within 3 years, if not sooner. We have a plan in place to get this done a well. We also are working on prepping for various situations, to have emergency supplies on hand for our family to survive and possibly extended family and friends. To be honest this is a goal everyone should strive for no matter your current situation.

Food and Water : Right now it consists of a bucket of freeze-dried meals that would last 72 hours, providing we had water. Of course we also have our normal food supplies which consist of a lot of ramen and spaghetti since they are cheap and easy to stock up on. No that isn’t all we eat though! As long as we had water to last, we could easily last a week right now with what we have in our home. Our water supply on the other hand, we have enough for maybe 2 days going based off of 1 gallon per person per day. So we definitely need to improve that situation.

First Aid: Again very minimal consisting of band-aids, gauze, scissors and tweezers. It holds a lot of room for improvement to say the least, but it is better than nothing, right?

Shelter: We live in a good location that could easily be secured if needed but if we have to leave, our basic shelter is a tent until we can build something more permanent.

So there you have it. We have our plan in place for getting out of our last two debts before buying a home as well as our planning for a disaster or some other event. Do you have any plans for the future or for prepping in case of disaster?
