10 Things You Can Do to Prep in 30 Minutes or Less
There are times when we get so busy that we set aside our prepping for another day. From my perspective, that is perfectly okay. On the other hand, we can be our own worst enemies and sometimes the guilt from not prepping frustrates and upsets us. I know since I have personally been there and done that.
As a solution, consider taking an occasional small bite of prepping such as once a day or once a week. Set aside one day or one evening a week, and spend thirty minutes attending to your preps. Need some ideas? Here are ten things you can do to prep just a little bit for the next ten weeks.
1. Store some water
Carefully wash some empty soda or juice bottles then fill them with tap water. You can also use mason jars or meticulously clean glass jars. Municipal tap water is typically pretreated so no additive is needed. If you want to be extra safe, or if your water comes from some other source, add a drop of fresh, unscented bleach to each bottle.
Label each bottle with the date and the type of water. For example, in my own household, I will label them “Tap Water” or “Berkey Water”. Sharpies are the perfect tool for labeling and work much better than stickers.
If you have a freezer that is not quite full, store these bottles in the freezer. The frozen water will allow your freezer to run more efficiently, plus, help keep things frozen for longer in the event of a power outage. Another good place to store extra water is in the dead space between the sofa and the wall or in the back of a cupboard that is too high or t0o deep to be of practical use.
