Task 16: Paper Challenge

Hey Everyone, Eric here from the 30 Days with your Day 16 Challenge….

The images are still vivid in most of our minds as the COVID-19 stay home orders began, there was a rush to stock up on items… One of the items, everyone seemed to think they would need…. Toilet Paper. Which really made little sense since none of the symptoms of COVID would suggest this would be something that would be needed. I remember seeing the images in the media… It did not make sense to me, however I remember going to by pantry and checking how much I had on hand. (P.S. I had plenty… still do!)

While the images were a different item, the images were similar to those we have seen in the past after other emergencies and disasters. Rushes for water, or toilet paper all highlight how easily our supply chains can be interrupted.

This is also why we talk about keeping items on hand and buying one or two more of items you want to have as part of your preparedness kit a little here and a little there.

DAY 16 Challenge:1-3, or 5 pts    For your Day 16 Challenge, we want you to make a list of some staple items you think you would like to have on hand for emergencies and disasters. Share with us a picture of your list, with the goal of how much of each you would ideally like to keep on hand.

Level Up: 5 pts For today’s level up, we want you to take that list, and pull out the items you have on it. Share a picture or video of how much you have as well as sharing a plan of how you make sure you keep them stocked. When do you decide its time to buy or order more? How do you rotate to make sure they don’t expire? Finally share with us how long you think each item could last you in a disaster or emergency.
