Preparedness Tip Wednesday: Prepping on a Budget

Happy New Year!
We hope you have made being more prepared part of your list of Resolutions for this year! We hope through our weekly Preparedness Tips we can help you accomplish that and help you save money in the process. The Ready Center has been putting together this amazing list of how you can get all the things you need by only spending $20 a paycheck! If you haven't been over there and seen it you need to! You assemble the kit over the course of one year and it will get you pointed in the right direction when it comes to the safety of your family.  If you want to spend more or have to spend less, that’s okay.  Prepare at the pace your budget allows and modify recommendations to the uniqueness of your family.  The point of this is to show how painless and easy it is to begin your emergency preparations.  And at only $20 a paycheck, this can fit anyones budget.  So now is the time for you to start.  I personally dare you to step up and take this challenge seriously.  Make it a New Year Resolution if you have to.  You’re worth the challenge, and so are you loved ones.
