Winter can bring extended power failures due to severe weather, like ice, snow, and wind. But you can survive (and thrive) with these simple tips.

Plan your meals—Have plenty of shelf stable food on hand. This means food that has been preserved (canning, pickling, fermenting, freeze-friend or dehydrated) that can last for months, if not years. Freeze-dried food can last for decades—up to 25 years!

Plan your garden—The cold winter months are the perfect time to mentally plant your future garden. Growing your own garden to ensure you can feed your family is sensible and satisfying. How fun to dream of sun-drenched tomatoes and flavorful herbs in the dead of winter!

Plan some family time—Turn off those devices and have a family game night. Keep a running score of winners and celebrate in the spring with a picnic.

Plan for health—The cold weather often brings illness, dry skin, and chapped hands and lips. All natural and holistic health remedies, teas, balms, gels, and salves provide comfort from head to toe. Some old-time remedies have been used for generations, like a classic hot water bottle.

Plan for the dark and cold—A classic Aladdin oil lamp will heat the room in which it is placed, in addition to providing enough light for sewing, reading, or crafting. Don’t get left in the dark when the power is out.
