Wonderbag Electricity Free Slow Cooker

The Wonderbag is an amazing invention that helps conserve electricity. To use it, you heat up your foods for a certain amount of time, then move the pot to the Wonderbag. Since the Wonderbag retains heat exceptionally well, it will keep cooking the food for up to 12 hours! You can use it in the summer months so you don’t have to use your oven, in disasters when you lose power or even every day to conserve energy.And, for each Wonderbag purchased, one is donated to a charity or church in South Africa.

    We are trying to teach our 3 year old son what to do in case of a fire. We’re also changing all batteries in our smoke detectors.

  2. Linda Szymoniak says:

    I’ve been restocking first aid kits, including one for our pets, and getting paperwork copied and kept where we can access it easily, including contact information, vet information (including shot records, microchip numbers, etc.), and organizing our canned/boxed foods in our pantry (swapping out ones close to end date for ones with longer shelf life and using those that are close to the end date first).

  3. We are getting food that really dont need cooked and bottled water stocked up.

  4. Cheryl Abdelnour says:

    We are getting foods and meds and outhdoor cooking pots.

  5. We are creating get home kits for each car, food bars, emergency blankets, first aid kits, water, etc.

  6. We are going over FEMA’s online CERT course for community preparedness.

  7. I am going to update our bug out bags.

  8. We are slowly saving more bulk beans and grains

  9. We try to keep a stock pile for just in case moments. When I was a teenager, my home town had an ice storm so bad that we didn’t have water or electricity for 3 weeks! We had to boil icicles for drinking water and the stores couldn’t get more supplies in because of the iced roads and fallen trees. That taught me to always be prepared for the unexpected!

  10. We are checking and replacing batteries in the detectors and refreshing over the emergency plan.

  11. Jennifer Pickett says:
