Emergency Survival For Women

I started to write an informational article for a website I contribute to and realized there was just too much information in my notes to do justice for a 700 word article.  So I decided to dedicate a post of all this information in one spot for others to help themselves become better prepared in case of a natural disaster or any other emergency.  Much of this information I credit to my emergency preparedness mentor: Gary. He seems to have fallen off the face of the earth but while he was with us at training meetings, we learned a lot.
 To him I credit a lot of what is posted here:   Click on any of the lists and it will be easier to read......













                                                 An interesting idea for those who have access to pantyhose. Not something most of us think about:





This next bit of information is very sensitive.... Tampons have always been a "women's only" topic but after learning about how useful they are in many other ways (especially in emergencies) that I felt that I had to post this for everyone to read...























This is a great resource to start your preparing on a budget over the whole year....most people think about what they can do and stop there.... This puts your ideas to motion so you can do it...

This very helpful list is of what anyone can put aside to barter when the normal financial system has collapsed. There is always a question of what should be kept and what to toss.  This helps answer that question....
