Don't Panic - Prepare

photo by fotologic

If you've been watching the news you know the financial crisis has gone global. Here are a few reminders to keep your family prepared for potential economic hardship.

  • Keep emergency CASH on hand for food and gas in case they freeze the banks and credit cards
  • Stock up on food, water, and household basics (toilet paper, diapers, etc.)
  • Keep your gas tank full and your car maintenance up to date
  • Keep your cell phone charged
  • Live within your means
  • Pay off your debt
  • Have an action plan for loss of electricity, food, water, money access, and lack of gasoline
  • Eliminate addictions (including food, cigarettes, shopping, ect.) - [you don't want to deal with withdrawal symptoms or the choice between your addiction and food if a crisis hits]
  • Learn to live simply and be happy without "things"
  • Stay healthy and active
  • Keep your body and mind flexible
  • Don't panic or be afraid with what's going on - but be prepared
