This is a great book that I highly recommend, The Survival Savvy Family by Julie Sczerbinski. She is a young mother that calls herself a Coach-purse carrying, Go-Bag packing wife and mother of two children living in the suburbs.
What I like about Julie’s book is the size, 5-1/2 by 7-1/2 inches and packed full of information. This book will walk you through what to do in almost any disaster that might come your way. I would buy the book in the paperback form because if we lose power, that Kindle, Nook or other tablet might not work. You can put this book on your coffee table to read over and over again. You can never have too many emergency preparedness books, in my opinion.
Help Your Family Be Survival Savvy:
She talks about how to explain to kids what to expect before and after an unforeseen emergency. She even includes some forms for you to fill out for emergency contact information. She shares simple ideas you may not have even thought of to prepare your family for just about every situation you can think of that may happen. This book will give you ideas to teach your family how to put together a plan and then use that plan. She gives you the tools to get you started on a plan…a plan we all need!
We all know we need to get our financial affairs in order, and Julie walks you through it step by step. You will learn about what to put in your 72 Hour Bug Out Bag and how to fill the pantry in your home. We all have an excuse why we haven’t started to prepare for the unexpected and that’s okay, you are not alone. Julie is not what I call a hardcore prepper. She writes in an upbeat manner and makes you think about things without putting any negative stress on yourself. Julie also has an awesome website you will want to check out for sure: Home Ready Home.
You will learn about water storage, water purification and so much more! I really suggest you purchase her book, you will be glad you did, I promise. Here it is: The Survival Savvy Family: How to Be Your Best During the Absolute Worst
