It’s Pay It Forward Day, a day that encourages us to do something kind for someone else and, rather than expecting payment or a good deed in return, we challenge the recipient to pass it on. I love this idea!  I think paying kindness forward is a great way to live life…and I’ve experienced its boomerang effect of returning kindness back to my own life.  So, I’ve been trying to find a way to apply this to food storage today and this is what I came up with.  Here are a few ideas to help others embrace preparedness:

  1. Offer to present a free mini-class in your area on preparing food storage recipes, or planning your year-supply.  You can even do this in your home with a few friends.  You may be surprised how many people would love to learn what you know!
  2. Take a few jars of your prized peaches and leave them on the doorsteps of friends with a note that encourages them to share their bounty with someone else in the area.
  3. Help a friend build a few shelves in her storage room to hold more food storage.
  4. Teach your kids frugality by inviting them to help you cut coupons and shop for toothpaste, shampoo, and soap to replenish your supply. (The blessing of teaching your children the value of a dollar will always come back around.)
  5. Bake something using food storage ingredients and take it to a neighbor who could use a pick-me-up (include the recipe).

I’d love to hear your creative ideas too!
