Recently, I got a new debit card in the mail. As I’ve done plenty of times in the past I called the phone number to activate it but I couldn’t because something I’d done was wrong. I suspect it’s because we got new phone numbers after we setup our bank account and so the information didn’t match.

Because of my inability to activate my new debit card I was going to stop by the bank the other

I was sent this WaterSafe Drinking Water Test Kit for review. To be honest, I wasn’t sure I truly needed it but I figured it couldn’t hurt to test my water as I’ve never done this where we live and, of course, it’s better to KNOW my water is good rather than to ASSUME it is.

Why have a water test kit?

Well, according to the Amazon description:

My wife and I decided that we’d really like to make an effort to make more of our own foods from scratch which reminded me of this Magic Mix video that I saw a while back. Apparently, it’s great for use as a base in all sorts of foods, including “cream of” soups, puddings, sauces, and more.

Magic Mix is super easy to make and will only take you 5-10 minutes to make a batch. What to do with it

To be clear, I’m a HUGE fan of the Alton’s. Joe and Amy have done a wonderful service to the prepping community over the years and I can’t say enough good things about anything and everything they’ve ever done. Really! They know their stuff and it certainly shows with their revised an expanded edition of the Survival Medicine Handbook.

I actually purchased, read, and reviewed their first edition quite a while ago and couldn’t have been happier. Amazingly, they

Smoke alarms are a vital part of your home safety plan. I firmly believe that nearly every room in the house should have one, from the bedrooms to the kitchen and the hallways in-between, smoke alarms should be everywhere! When every second counts you want all the warning you can get.

Smoke alarms “go bad”

Purchase a good dual-sensor model (there are both ionization and photoelectric types) which is battery-operated, such as this First Alert dual-sensor model:

Yeah, I

This week we made a trip to the local library in preparation for the upcoming start of school. Now, I know the library may seem like an antiquated resource these days, you know, with the advent of the Internet and all, but I think it’s still a wonderful resource we should make use of, especially when trying to continue to be more frugal in our lives.

More importantly, I’d like my children to have an eventual appreciation for the building

I’m still getting used to where we live in the Pacific Northwest… things are just a bit different than where I moved from in the Midwest. There are so many tall trees and the layout of roads and homes is a bit different.

While there are large expanses of land with sprawling subdivisions and plenty of roads in the Midwest, here they tend to cut out a path for a two lane road and do the same

I was at Walmart the other day and remembered that I needed a new bottle of bleach and apparently it’s been a while because every bottle I looked at said “More Concentrated” on the label. I mean EVERY bottle, even the generic bleach! Here’s what they say: Granted, I didn’t thoroughly scour every bottle on the shelf because my better half was in a slight hurry but I swear they all said “more concentrated.” I thought to myself: What the

It seems that small portable power banks are all the rage these days and to an extent they should be. After all, they can be used to recharge one of your most useful assets during an emergency: the cell phone.

Now, I know there are people who say you shouldn’t rely on a cell phone and that’s true, assuming it’s the ONLY tool you have to perform the functions it can do. IMO, a cell phone should be one

If you know who Practical Preppers are then you’ll want to pay attention. If you don’t know who they are, Practical Preppers are two well-known YouTube personalities, Scott Hunt (aka. Engineer775) and David Kobler (aka., SouthernPrepper1), who are two wonderful people you should be paying attention to in the preparedness community.

Recently, I was contacted to review Scott Hunt’s new book, The Practical Preppers Complete Guide to Disaster Preparedness (there’s also a Kindle edition if interested), and I can
