So, I kind of got bit by the 72-Hour Kit bug. Weird? Maybe. It was really fun, though!
Last night, my ward had an Enrichment activity on 72-Hour Kits & they brought supplies so that we could each make a little one for ourselves. Not a whole lot of people showed up, so there were extra supplies & I made one for David as well. They were all food-type items in a large freezer bag, so when I got home, I located some duffel bags, warm clothes & extra random toiletries that I could include. It was really fun to go through everything & see what I could find as well as make a mental note of things that we really needed (like water, for instance).
(And I found a great use for those Harry Potter hats & scarves that we got for Halloween that I knew we'd never really wear again!)
If we got caught in a disaster right now, at least we wouldn't necessarily die. We've still got a long way to go before they are fully functional, though.
If anyone has any good ideas that they've done for their kits, feel free to let me know! :)
