How do you keep track of your preps?
Even though I’m a pretty thorough preparedness gal, and do all I can to get my preparedness “life” organized, I still fall short in many areas.
Update May 2014 – The Essential Oil Addition to the Preparedness Planner and the Firearm Planner are now available
My main frustration is keeping track of my food storage. I think I’ve inventoried it at least 15 times over the years and so far no system seems to really keep track of all the various items I consider storage.
I ran across The Preparedness Planner by Jennifer at Self Reliant School the other day and I think I’ve finally found the perfect way to keep track of my home storage. This planner will not only keep track of my food storage, but it will help me manage my rotation and expiration dates.
I started by creating master meal plans, using these forms to create 1 to 3 month storage worksheets. This allowed me to find some items that I was missing in my food storage. Now I have a better plan for future purchases.
The other benefit? The Preparedness Planner is
on sale this week! still a great bargain.
You can use the complete system or take bits and pieces and use it to fit your family’s needs. I have mine in a binder with dividers for each area that I want to track. I just got started though, and I’m currently concentrating my efforts on the food storage work sheets. This new planner is replacing my Excel spreadsheet system. I like the ability to take my binder with me while I pull “inventory”. I expect this will finally help me to keep an accurate inventory.
In addition to the comprehensive food storage tracker, The Preparedness Planner has forms for keeping track of:
- freezer storage
- water storage
- bug out bags
- medical supplies
- toiletries and cleaners
- documentation items
- seeds and plants
- animal and pet supplies
- plus a master list of gear and tools that you might need
