For the month of September, we will be posting on our Facebook page as well as on our website a DAILY STEP you can take in the month of September to make your family better equipped to handle common issues the typical Michigan family will take. In these daily steps, we will strive to do a few things:

  • Keep costs low. Ideally we will be under $100/week.
  • Keep time commitment low. Ideally we will be under 30 min/day.
  • Concentration on survival priorities of shelter, hydration, nutrition, and rescue/recovery/mitigation.

If you’re interested in participating, we would LOVE to hear from you and your experiences both along the way and after. Email us at and tell us you’re IN. If you prefer to review and participate without letting us know all about it, that’s OK as well! Follow along and we hope you improve your situation.

To begin with, try to save about $200 in August to help lessen the financial burden. Try to allocate some time each day, and try to schedule some weekend time to “catch up” on things you might have missed through the week.
