Disaster Preparedness –
Shopping List so you Can
Stay in Your House at least 3 weeks
If you have never thought of being prepared for a disaster, now is the time.
Make sure that you have at least enough supplies to be able to stay in your house without electricity for a minimum of 3 weeks.
Here are some healthy ideas on how to do this without costing a lot.
Buy a little extra each time you go to the store. Keep it in a separate room so you don’t use it up. Eat up and replace food before it gets to the use-by date.
5 Gallon buckets for water, plus lid. That way you can stack them one on the other. (Don’t go too high or it will be dangerous).
Drums of water would be nice to have, for flushing the toilet, cleaning etc.
Oatmeal. (You can eat this raw with water if necessary).
Almond Milk, long life.
Raw honey (From flowers that aren’t GMO).
Dried lentils. Soak for 8 hours – that sprouts them. Rinse once a day. That’s your salad.
Snow pea seeds. Sprout them for fresh greens. (Get from ebay).
Dried beans, if you have plenty of water & a way to cook them. (Soak for 8 hours before cooking to make them digestible).
Rice, basmati, if you have plenty of water & a way to cook them.
Cans crushed tomatoes.
Dried berries (eg mulberries) Try nuts.com
Dried vegetables (carrots, peas, spinach, leeks, non-gmo corn etc.)
Dried Italian herbs.
Mustard / hot sauce (as long as you are not sensitive to these toxins, to keep things interesting).
Pasta (einkorn), if you have plenty of water & a way to cook it.
Millet bread. (Store in freezer).
Nut butter (Make your own from almonds and sunflower seeds).
Salted butter. (Organic so it’s not GMO).
Raw almonds (unpasterized can be bought from ebay).
Raw cashews, walnuts, pepitas.
Raw cacao nibs (for a treat).
Raw sunflower seeds (Only around $3/lb)
Dried figs (nuts.com).
Flour, Einkhorn (modern wheat is toxic). For pancakes and muffins.
Coconut oil, for cooking or butter replacement. www.Vitacost.com
Spirulina tablets, for vegetables. We like Earthrise. vitacost.com
Disposable dinnerware and cutlery.
Extra garbage bags.
Anti-allergy capsules like Benadryl.
If the water goes, you will not be able to flush the toilet. If the electricity goes, some places will not be able to supply enough pressure to keep water runnning, and eventually even the sewage pipes will get full. Have at least:
If possible, 40 gallon drum of tap water, for flushing, as long as the sewerage works are still working.
Bucket and lid (for night time), or bedside commode:
Small shovel for digging a simple pit latrine (pic below).
Plus a small trowel for shoveling dirt on top once someone has used it.
Two long, flat pieces of wood or concrete for a simple pit latrine:
Cash, in small bills and coins. If the electricity goes, the debit card machines may not work.
Baby wipes (for washing hands).
Disinfectant (for the toilet).
VALUE PLUS! One little Nemo-Lumo (About 1 1/2)” can just about light up a whole room. SUPER bright, and cheap. Everyone should have one! See below:
Camping propane cook stove & spare cartridges.
Because boredom will be a problem:
Packs of cards. Plus instructions.
Jigsaw puzzles. www.ebay.com
Don’t let food get so old you have to throw it out. Eat it, and replace it before use-by date.
