Making It Home

Failing to prepare is preparing to fail. Aaron and I go over how to get started preparing for emergencies. We taste test some of the top emergency food storage companies. Learn about how you can be prepared easily and even on a budget. Be ready for the next earthquake, flood, hurricane, wildfire, or any other emergency that happens. Everyone should consider emergency preparedness another form of insurance.
