  • Weekly Book Bonanza Giveaway! Book One.

    If you have not had the opportunity to get your hands on this valuable resource guide, I highly recommend that you do!

    It’s a Disaster…and what are YOU gonna do about it? has been used in First Responder Training across the country!  How much better could your family be prepared than to have at hand the very same book that so many First Responders use!

    The book doesn’t read like a novel nor is it difficult to ‘get through.’  In fact, it lends itself to reading in short segments of time based upon your need, area of potential disaster or interest.  Even if you are in the midst of a crisis, the way this book is set up – it’s so easy to find what you need in just seconds that it is a far better field guide than most other emergency manuals I’ve read.

    From Family to Business preparedness or Natural to man-made disasters It’s a Disaster…and what are YOU gonna do about it? really covers the widest base of events I’ve ever seen in one book.  Not only does it cover the event – it gives you the wherewithal to handle living through them!  The step-by-step bullet points that help you stay on track for so many possible events help you feel ready with almost endless contingency plans.

    As the author’s state on their website It’s a Disaster…and what are YOU gonna do about it?  truly “helps families and businesses “be aware, be prepared, and have a plan” for most types of emergencies and disasters (including Terrorism).  The 266-page paperback provides quick-reference instructional bullets in 2-color format. It is not written to alarm people, rather it suggests tips on what to think about and do before, during and after specific types of scenarios, as well as how to administer basic first aid.”

    I hope you’ll enter this Weekly Book Bonanza Giveaway #1 for your opportunity to win it and add it to your bug out bag, emergency bin or back pack.

  • Eight (8) Items NOT to keep under the kitchen sink!

    What NOT to put under the Kitchen Sink

    What are the items NOT to put under your kitchen sink?  We've been taught or simply developed habits of storing certain items under the kitchen sink.


    With plumbing, humidity and a variable heating and cooling environment - you might be surprised exactly what doesn't work well there that you've just tossed under the kitchen sink out of habit.  Our mother's may have put some things there that really do better elsewhere.  They learned some things from their mothers and so forth.  But are there some things that don't really belong under the kitchen sink? 

    Yes.  What they are may surprise you:

    • Fire Extinguishers
    • Potatoes
    • Flip-top Containers
    • Boxed Items
    • Steel Wool/ Brillo Pads
    • Onions
    • The Trash Can
    • Rags

    Listen to this episode of the Surviving on Shoestrigns Show to hear just why these don’t bode well in the cabinet under your kitchen sink. You may be losing money, wasting food or simply making it inconvenient for yourself just because it's 'what you've always done.'  Maybe it’s time to rethink what's under the kitchen sink!

    I'd love for you to leave a comment too...are there some things I missed that you think don't belong under the kitchen sink but many folks still keep them there?
