Our Journey to a Mortgage Free Home ... #14

Before we get started with today's post I want to thank Ana H. for her generous donation. You made my day Ana!  Thank you again!


(You can read previous entries in this series HERE.)

Let's see, in our last entry I left you with us working on the big room and I showed you the almost finished half-bath  ... now, it's time to step to the left of the half-bath and look at our 'official pantry room.'  Now, you know I had to have a pantry room even if it it is kind of on the small size!  (The room is approximately 4 foot x 4 foot.)





This is what it currently looks like, there are a few more things that need to be done to finish it out completely, but it is in full use ...









... our front door!!!!
Little by little, we were getting the job done ... as money allowed!

Stay tuned, there's more to come!

Preparedness: Power Outage Action Plan

In her post titled Preparedness and Pantries, Your Emergency Action Plan, Annabel talks about having an emergency action plan to impliment in the event that you have warning of a possible power outage due to storms, etc.

After reading her post I decided that I needed to get my plan on paper and post it where it would be easily accessable.  In an emergency situaiton, we don't always think of everything that needs to be done.  By have a written plan and knowing where to look for it, it will be easier not to forget something that needs to be done.

Here's my written plan ...



Power Outage Plan

At the First Warning or as soon as you realize there is a threat …

Make a list and grocery shop

Do laundry 

Turn the temperature of fridge down a bit lower

Fill every gap in the freezer with bottles of water. (This will help keep frozen items froze longer and can also be placed in fridge to help keep items in it cool longer as well.)

Fill vehicles with gas

Check propane tanks and refill if necessary

Fill prescriptions if needed

Secure things outside

Fully charge everything... phones, iPad, Kindle, computer, etc.

Fill gas cans  

Fill water cans/bottles

Fill up every available empty milk jug, soda bottle, juice jug, etc with water

Check and restock bottled water


Hours Before

Get out flashlights, candles, etc.

Set up generator so it's ready for use

Cook next meal and as much non perishable/non refrigerated foods as possible

Get bath, wash and dry hair if time permits
