DIY Portable Emergency Toilets That Are Easy To Make

Today it’s all about emergency toilets. I may have mentioned this before, but every family needs their own emergency toilets. I will not share mine. Nope, nada. So, there you have it. When I teach classes I always mention to those attending that emergency toilets are cheap to make and they better make one because I doubt anyone will share a used toilet with them. Yes, it’s gross to talk about, but we all have to go pee and poo, it’s a fact of life. I love hearing from readers because someone always comes up with a new idea for me. You will see that several of those making comments use kitty litter with theirs, but I also suggest this product: Reliance Bio-Blue

I recently received a comment from someone from Puerto Rico by the name of Maritza. I have to tell you her comment melted my heart. I just have to share it, “Hi I am from Puerto Rico and thanks to your advice I started both a food and water storage that allowed us as a family of 6 to endure Hurricane Maria’s aftermath. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge!!!”

The Best Survival-You Are Responsible For Your Family

I’m teaching a class tonight about the best survival tips every family needs. The one thing I really need to get out to the world is that we must be responsible for our own family. I get it if your home is blown away by a hurricane, flooding, fire, etc. I often joke with my neighbor across the street if my house slides onto their front yard from flooding, I hope they have a nice guest room. I’ll dig for the food and water and take care of us. Those of us who prepare for the unexpected view it as a way of life. Oh, the green beans are on sale, I need a few cans or a case of those. Mark and I just purchased some cans of green beans for $.65 each.
