So Thanksgiving is just behind us and already we are talking about Christmas.
Well, I'm glad actually, because I am not always one to plan ahead.
Before I know it, it's the week before Christmas and my tree isn't even up :).
Well, this year, I am hoping to turn over a new leaf and get ready a little earlier.
Actually, I don't do that much for Christmas because we don't do many presents. Too much of that buying frenzy really takes the focus off the real reason for the season.
And I can be pretty practical.
(Being practical also means that there might be affiliate links in this post. If you click on one and make a purchase I might make a commission. I so appreciate it and it keeps this free resource up and running.)
What I mean by that is–I'm not a real “foofy gal.” I want my gifts to be something I (or the recipient) will really use. I am really one of those wives who would be pretty happy to get a new blender (high powered like the Vitamix, of course) or a swanky new vacuum or something like that, rather than a visit to a day spa, or a fancy necklace or an expensive dinner at a restaurant!
What better gift than things to help you get ready for an emergency? Getting prepared is something we all should be doing, but it's hard to know where to start–and some of the items on your list are pretty pricey.
Well, in the interest of being practical and helping you get prepared for no cost at all, I have teamed up with some great bloggers and some great companies to bring you this mega-giveaway just in time for Christmas.
So now, here are the neato keen prizes that you can enter to win!!!
Stainless Steel-Large Kelly Kettle (Complete Kit): A perfect item for survival or camping kits. Includes the cooking pot, pot support, grill, and pot gripper/handle. We aren't much for camping, but I would love to do more. What a nice set!
AquaBrick Kit 2000K: A fast flowing gravity fed water filter: The AquaBrick will safely filter 2000 gallons of water and is portable. The AquaBrick removes waterborne microbial and viral pathogens, spores and heavy metals. It also removes hydrocarbons, radiation, fluoride, chlorine and other harmful substances. Having a good water-filtration system is crucial for daily and emergency uses. Read Is Your Water Safe?
WonderMill Wonder Junior Deluxe: Largely regarded as the best hand mill, this grain mill comes with both stone and stainless steel milling heads, a wide double clamp, four guides, and a cleaning brush. This is a super cool mill. You can make your own almond meal (and other nut and seed meals) and coconut flour! I've been wanting one of these for a long time!
Honeyville Grain Case of Hard Red Wheat: The core of most prepper's food storage. A case contains 6 #10 cans and is perfect for storage or to use as soon as it arrives. I used to make my whole grain bread using 1/2 Hard Red and 1/2 Hard White Wheat. It turned out SUPERB!!! If you are GF, you could use this in your garden for ground cover I think.
Royal Berkey System: The Royal Berkey will safely filter untreated water at the rate of about 4 gallons an hour. It comes with two filters, serves 2-6 people, and holds approx 3.25 gallons. The Royal Berkey system removes pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites along with pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, and radon 222 trihalomethanes. Berkey is a neat system. I will be talking about them more in the near future. Again, filter your water!!! There's tons of junk in it.
MultiFlame Mini Tool: The MulitFlame Mini Tool from Trayer Wilderness is a 6″ fire piston and so much more. You can start a fire, clean your pistol, use as a screwdriver or anything else that fits a 1/4 in hex bit.
