Preparedness Challenge: October Week 4

     The last preparedness challenge of October is to find a preparedness book and a portable space heater. As the weather gets colder across the United Stated, the need for warmth grows. If you can’t afford a heater, then gather more items to keep you warm in your home if a natural disaster broke your windows.  Brrrr! Where I live, that would be very, very cold. So, find something that works for you.


  • Keep a few preparedness books you can hold and reference in your home library to help you deal with disasters.
  • Buy used copies to save you money.
  • There are many books, but remember I’m not an extreme prepper.

My favorites:

  1. Survival Mom: How to Prepare Your Family for Everyday Disasters and Worst-Case Scenarios
  2. Just in Case: How to be Self-Sufficient when the Unexpected Happens
  3. The Disaster Preparedness Handbook: A Guide for Families


  • Be prepared for unexpected weather changes.
  • Isolate to one room in your home and close the doors for added warmth.
  • If you need to evacuate to another house, take the heater with you.
  • Expect heaters to disappear from store shelves during disasters.

Being prepared will bring added peace to your life.
