September Preparedness Month (3)

Take that case of water that you just bought and cram the freezer with at least half of it. This step has many benefits, it'll make the freezer more efficient and save you money. If the power goes out, you'll have drinkable blocks of ice and the frozen bottles will help keep the freezer colder longer.

Plus, if you are going on a road trip, then you've already got your ice.

Comments are always welcome, and continue to visit this month for more prep steps.

One task every day, one small task....for a better prepared community - K


  1. I remember my Dad freezing plastic jugs of water in the summer. He worked outdoors and as the ice melted, he always had a supply of cold drinking water.

  2. My Dad too takes empty milk jugs and fills 90% full, leaves them in chest freezer. then uses to transport food north in the summer.

  3. Vicki and Rob, a lot of prepping is really just doing what our parents and grandparents did on a normal basis.
