BE SELF-RELIANT: PREPARE YOUR FAMILY (Part 4) -
SUNDRY AND SANITATION ITEMS

As part of my ongoing series about what you can do to be a God-fearing, self-reliant, freedom-loving American...
Sanitation is a huge issue and in any sort of emergency often goes by the wayside.  But disease and sickness usually takes a much larger toll than the actual emergency.  A case in point is the typhoon that recently hit the Philippines.

The below reflects the “at a minimum” need for a family of 4 for a year:

QUANTITY                                                        WHERE TO BUY
1.  5 Cases of Toilet Paper                                   Costco
2.  3 Lg. Boxes Tampons/3 Lg. Boxes Pads        Costco
While embarrassing perhaps for some tampons are a huge deal and have many different uses...don't laugh.  Read more here:  http://www.artofmanliness.com/2012/06/05/survival-tampon/
3. 4 Lg. Bottles Dawn Dish Soap                        Costco
4. 5 Lg. Pkgs. Of Bar Soap                                 Walmart
5. 5 Lg. Bottles of Shampoo                               Walmart
6. 16 Tubes of Toothpaste                                   Costco
7. 2 Lg. Pkgs. Toothbrushes                               Costco
8. 8 Gals. Bleach                                                Costco/Walmart
9. 8 Gals. White Vinegar
    2 Gals. “Real” Apple Cider Vinegar              Costco/Walmart
    -Get actual Apple Cider Vinegar.  Read the label, some are 
        just “flavored” only.

  1. Good sharing, yes, apple cider vinegar (ACV) helps to boost metabolism, blocks the body’s storage of dietary fat plus breaks down and dissolves existing body fat. A study at Australia’s University of Sydney in which subjects who consumed two tablespoon of ACV daily experienced fewer surges and crashes in blood sugar levels. Read more at:
