The charts on this page represent the monthly goals that one family set in their efforts to secure a 1-year supply of food and other necessities. Based on some of the entries, I am guessing the family to be Mormons. Beyond reformatting the text-file for HTML, I am leaving the file as I originally received it. If you see something that doesn't apply to you, by all means leave that item out of your budget.


Make a goal to always have the fuel tanks on ALL vehicles at least half full.

Find a place in your home that is easily accessible for storing the kit. You need to be able to grab it at a moment's notice to leave your home. Your first aid kit is also part of the 72 hour kit.

NOTE: your 72 hour kit is part of your general storage but your general storage CANNOT be part of your 72 hour kit. When you need it there may not time to gather it together for transport.
