I work really hard to our prepare our family and home for a natural disaster or emergency. Water storage seems to be one of our biggest problems and concerns. We just don’t have the storage. I cant remember where I heard this idea but it really has saved us. We do a lot of canning in the summer. I think last year I bottled over 300 jars of yummy food. As you can imagine that is a lot of bottles to store! Now when we empty a bottle I wash the jar and the lid, fill the jar with water, and then I put it on the shelf.
I have to store the jars anyway – why not fill them with water while they sit on the shelf. It may not be perfect long term storage but it gets naturally recycled each year.
When I need the jars, I just empty the water out, wash, and then fill them with the spoils of our garden again. Its one solution that is working for us!
