In the Case of an Emergency… Are you ready?

In the case of an emergency would you join the masses in panicking and having to spend all your available cash on supplies?

Or would you rather be calm and prepared, not having to panic or stress because you know that you and your family are already provided for?

 

With the arrival and potential destruction of hurricane Isaac
comes the reminder of just how much a storm like that can
change lives. And how important it is for us and our families
to be prepared not just for hurricanes but emergencies of any
kind.

Tiffany from MyLitter has compiled an emergency supply list
along with some great key coupons to help cut down on costs
while still being prepared. So today I want to help set you up
in the best way possible so that you can be prepared for
whatever happens.
