Shelf Reliance Mom: Would you be ready in 10 minutes?

Would you be ready in 10 minutes?

I am teaching a class about 72 Hour Kits and Water Storage tomorrow night and I came across this video:

It made me think...would I remember to grab everything?  Anyone with little ones knows how easy it is to forget even the basic necessary things when you're not in panic mode.  I can't imagine how difficult it must be to do so when your home is about to be destroyed or if there are some scary unknowns in the picture.  But what if I'm not in a disaster prone area?

This video made me think, I might not be in an area prone to disasters, but there are always things that are unexpected that can come up.  PS. I'm not saying, go and buy the product they are selling, just saying think about what you need to do to be ready.

I bought a Shelf Reliance 72 Hour Kit which I love and would highly recommend.  Drew and I were looking to buy the materials separately on their own but found that a backpack alone that was the quality of this one was about $60.  I figured $20 more for everything else I needed was a fantastic deal.  I will be posting info on here soon in case you might be interested in building your own kit. (This is a 2 person survival kit that I'm talking about which usually sells for 160 but you can get it through me for about half off!) If you do have the money, I would highly suggest getting one that is already made so you can have it asap and make sure that you don't forget anything. Whichever way you decide, just get to it!
