Don't forget to follow-up
National Health Insurance:Congratulations if you have assembled or purchased a Go-Kit or Food Storage! Now ask yourself, how old is it? Could the emergency food have gone stale? The water bottles leak? (mine did) The batteries became corroded? Part of emergency preparation requires periodic follow-through to update supplies.

Hopefully you have smoke detectors in your home or apartment. Fire departments promote a simple idea for keeping the batteries fresh: replace them on Daylight Savings Days when you turn your clock forward or back. Likewise find special days in the year for other survival follow-up. You could check your go-kit on your birthday and think of it as a present to yourself. Ask friends to buy new items for your kit as your gift.
Today's theme was inspired by an article found on BankRate.com called "7 reasons to review term life coverage." The author lists change in family, change in income, retirement, and other reasons to increase or decrease the amount of your insurance. Be sure to designate a financial review day each year to look at insurance, investments, accounts, etc and decide what might need changing.
A very old (pre-1225) proverb says "Time and tide wait for no man". As time passes things and circumstances change and we would be foolish to pretend otherwise. But it is so easy for time to slip by. You keep saying, "I'll do an inventory soon", and years go by. Don't let this happen! Pick special calendar dates and make preparation follow-through an annual tradition.
