For whatever reason - and there are many - things may fall apart one day, do you know how to hold it together, for a protracted period of time?  Take, for instance, WATER.  Fresh water supply is not a simple problem.  And fresh water is increasingly threatened these days, as lakes dry or become toxic with global warming, (see [livejournal.com profile] w_a_r_m_i_n_g); as larger storms cause toxic flooding; as infrastructure fails, as it did in Flint; as blue algae and other pathogens choke off municipal reserves, as happened in Toledo; and as the threat of solar or weapon EMPs, or hacks, may one day take down electrical grids.

So, here are a few things you might want to know - about keeping water on store, about fermenting liquids, and other tips about surviving a chronic disaster, over the long-haul. Better safe than thirsty. Of course, you can find lots more info by searching the sites.

Hi. Here's an informal post about how easy it can be to start stocking up for an emergency, even if you have very little money. Over time, you will find that the more you stock up, the more money you save. It is SO unbelievably helpful. If you can't afford to stock up on 25 pound bags of food, start with 5 pound bags, as I did through Azurestandard.com. Here are some basic, really cheap and nutritious staples that I think are great to stat off with. Sunflower seeds may save the most money, since they deter hunger. (They can be mixed w/ healthier oil+ sea-salt). Corn cannot be guaranteed to be non-GMO unless stated. (All popcorn and blue corn is currently GMO-free). Oats, cereal cannot be guaranteed to be GF unless stated. Therefore, I am offering alternate links...

5# Roasted sunflower kernels, $10.90 - (Salted, $10.90 - Raw, $8.10 - Raw, Organic, $10.70 - Farm&Fleet, 6#, $5.97)

5# Split Peas, $4.95 (Organic) - (Regular, $4.15)

5# Lentils, $3.90 - (Organic, $8.00)

5# Cornmeal, $4.50 - (Organic, $5.45)

5# Organic Popcorn, $4.95 - (1# Nacho popcorn/ taco flavoring, $7.05!)

5# Mighty Tasty Hot cereal, $7.95 - (Bob's GF, $11.45 - GF, Rolled OATS, $10.40)

1# Nutritious, Iodine-Rich Icelandic Kelp, $6.45 - (Organic, *possibly West-Coast origin?*, $3.15 )

Total Cost w/o shipping = $43.60
