As a member of The LDS Church I have learned since I was young Always be prepared. Now my family was not always active and we frequently lived month to month. So preparedness was not really something we did. But as I got older I began to learn more and more about being prepared and the blessings that come from heeding the prophets words. Preparedness is not just something that is for the Zombie Apocalypse or a huge natural disaster. But can be used when life isn't going our way or during an economic down turn. I have and know families who have used food storage after a job loss or 72 hour kits were used after a fire or flood. President Hinckley gave a talk, If ye are prepared ye shall not fear. After hearing that talk I decided that I would take the 5 topics he suggested and begin to work on those things to have for my family. So today I have compiled blog posts from others to give you the Ultimate Top 10 Emergency Preparedness blog links to help you get prepared! Being prepared for any kind of disaster is so important. Gathering a few everyday items to a central location can make a difference!

Spring is just around the corner and that means 2 of my favorite things happen.
1. Winter Gear gets put away and my mud room stays clean and 2. Sock matching goes out the window because we wear sandals! Yeah for Spring!!
Instead of just putting away our winter gear I get it ready for an emergency. Living here in Idaho, even in the summer we can have some cold nights. So if we were to ever have an emergency we would most likely need our winter gear to keep warm. So I have my own way of keeping my winter gear together during the summer months just in case.

These past few weeks have been crazy busy for me. My kids have been out of school for spring break and that alone makes life crazy. I have had an itch to work on my closet. It is crazy unorganized, dark and blah. It is huge and can fit 2 full sized mattresses end to end. Let me also say “I am a blogger and I am unorganized”. There I said it. I may need an 8 step program or something. I am a blogger and I am unorganized. My house is rarely tidy. I have 4 kids and projects to do. Much more fun than walking around with a dish cloth in my hand all ..day…long. Bless those of you who do. I am just not that type of person. I would like to be but not enough to give up what makes me happy! So onto my unorganized closet… and a giveaway!

After a few crazy unorganized months (not all bloggers are super organized), I decided it was time to jump on the command center bandwagon. My schedule seems to have spun out of control. Sick kids, Holidays, sports and school activities. So many things a mom must do to keep a happy family. I have an amazing mudroom in my home. iron board, floor to ceiling lockers for the kids, wash basin and 1/2 bath. I didn't have a lot of wall space to work with and there are so many cool command centers out there. This one seems to work best for me.
