Every once in a while I come across an article online that I want to bookmark, but what with my computer restarting itself for updates and my kids coming along and closing windows, I invariably lose and forget about the link.
If you’ve ever experienced a computer virus that shuts down your computer or some other malfunction, you know the frustration of not having access to online resources. If those resources include vital information related to preparedness and survival, start printing! It just so happens that this four-day weekend would make a terrific time to track down valuable articles and begin printing them out.
You’ll need an extra ream of paper, maybe two, an extra ink cartridge, a 3-ring binder, a 3-hole punch, and a set or two of notebook dividers. Some helpful categories for organizing your information are:
- food preservation
- food storage
- fuel and energy
- health and fitness
Websites that have helpful articles, worthy of printing out, are:
If articles contain photos or other graphics, I usually copy and paste the entire thing into a Word document and then delete photos and anything else I don’t want printed out.
Bookmarking sites just isn’t enough in a crisis. You want a hard copy of the most important information and you’re going to need it in a well-organized binder, otherwise known as the Survival Mom Binder! This project should keep you busy until next week’s Action Step!
