September 4, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

You spend much of your day away from home while ‘at work’. Do you keep a survival kit of sorts at work? Some people keep a ’72 hour kit’ in their vehicle (highly recommended) which could serve as a survival kit for ‘at work’, however it may be a good idea to tailor a specific emergency kit to be kept at work – in a drawer, in your desk, wherever you have a bit of personal space…

Why? Because you never know when you might be temporarily stranded there.

Waxing cheese is the best way to preserve it (and age it) for long term storage, and as a side benefit cheese wax keeps out any unwanted beasts like mold.

You can also use wax to store the cheese that you buy at the store.

Cheese wax is quite easy to do (but a little messy) and is fairly inexpensive. Once the cheese is waxed, it can then be stored in a cool dark place indefinitely.

The Better Mousetrap

As a person who has been preparedness-minded, you have done an excellent job of acquiring a food storage beyond that of the average American – who is woefully low in this category. But that’s not the end of it – you’re not done yet…

There are several precautions that you must take in order to be assured that your extra food will stand the test of time. Not only should you be concerned about the storage environment (temperature, etc..), but also be very aware of your food storage containment, and the container it’s kept in.

Rodents (mice) have a way of finding food – and there are precautions that you can take to prevent rodents from destroying your valuable food storage…

(possibly the best cell phone charger for when the power goes out)

When there’s a regional power outage and the power goes out, your cell phone will keep on working – at least until the battery drains. Then what? During the time of hurricane Sandy, I recall reading articles describing how people were desperately looking for ways to charge up their cell phones for communications with loved ones (the cell towers were still operating due to their independent backup power systems – which is always a top priority during an outage).

I just wanted to let you know an interesting (coincidental?) thing that happened to me recently as I made a major transfer from one particular bank to deposit into a new (different) bank.
