What did you do this week?

Doing at least one small thing to improve or maintain your personal or family preparedness is a good habit to start. It could be something simple, like buying a couple of extra cans of your favorite soup while it is on sale (and putting them in the 'prudent reserve' spot) , or taking a grocery bag and putting a pair of jeans and some walking shoes in your office.

My 'thing' this week came after the reported 'lock-down' at a military installation. Some people were there overnight. Did they have toothbrushes? A blanket? So I took some old clothes -- comfortable ones that still fit but that I don't really wear anymore -- except for yard work-- and a fleecy throw, put them in a 'free' recyclable grocery bag and stuck them in my car trunk. At least something clean and comfy, especially if there is an overnighter. Sure, it's unlikely that I will get stuck at work overnight, but that was probably the farthest thing from the minds of the people who DID get locked in overnight. Other, more likely reasons to use the stuff include ending up with a flat tire and not wanting to change it in a skirt and heels.

It is a small thing, but over time, one action every week will add up.
