Not all gardening needs to be done outside. Creating a window sill herb garden is easy and creates a nice look for the kitchen or dining room – and you don’t have to walk far when your recipe calls for a few basil leaves. One of the most important part of growing your own herbs is that, in a case where grocery stores are shut down, or your food is limited in taste or textures, herbs can be a great way to add flavors and that little bit of extra “zing” to make a bland meal more appetizing.
When it comes to survival, nothing may be more important than your bug out bag (BOB). Unfortunately your bug out bag will fill up quickly so the last thing you want taking up space is a large tube of toothpaste.
Well, if you want fresh breath and a healthy smile without hogging all your BOB space, then dehydrated toothpaste is your answer. And, you can easily use your tubes of toothpaste, such as Crest, Colgate, etc. to start your dehydrated toothpaste stash.
Finding water while living off the grid may be a difficult task but an equal challenge is getting that water to acceptable drinking standards.

We are in the 21st century and you can no longer get around the fact that you need batteries for every day life. There are a lot of different battery brands out there, so which ones should you be stockpiling in case the power grid went down?

But they will last for a while and give you some of those small luxuries such as light, radio power, and more.
Whether you are just starting out on your journey to living off the grid or are a determined veteran, there is nothing better than growing your own food. There are a lot of vegetable choices for your garden, but if you want to ensure success, try planting these easy to grow vegetables and you’ll be on your way to sustainable living and freeing yourself from the binds of high-priced grocery bills.
