SURPRISE! I’m Hosting A Second April Giveaway, and It Starts Right Now!


Yeah!  Another giveaway for my wonderful readers!  Emergency Essentials has kindly agreed to sponsor this giveaway.  What exactly am I giving away?  A HUGE #10 can of Freeze Dried Beef Brisket!  Take a look…


What a great prize, huh?

What a great prize, huh?  Freeze dried foods last 20+ years when stored at the proper temperature (no hot garage storage if you want this to keep 20 years).  This is a great way to include meat in your long term storage.  You can also use this when you go camping or backpacking.  As it is a dry food, it’s a lot lighter to carry.


It’s difficult to tell how large things are when viewing pictures, so I took another picture, this one with a 16 oz can of mandarin oranges (sorry, I’m not giving the oranges away), so you can see how large the can is.


Look at how big that #10 can is!

  1. The 3-Day Lite Emergency backpack kit is on sale for $29 and that might not be a bad deal. My kids already have super decked-out kits (thanks to Grammie!), but my hubby and I have nothing for ourselves. This backpack might be an easy way for us to get started.
