When we prepare for our man-made or natural disasters we have to take everything into consideration.  It is easy to think of food, water and shelter but we often forget about the other requirements of life.  For instance, eye glasses, if needed.

Some preparations are gender specific.  I found this great article on the Prepared Housewives blog.  It relates to menstruation and what I think would be great survival tool.  It’s called a menstrual cup. I hope my female readers will comment.  Here is the link to the article.

Are You Still Using Tampons and Pads?

Sometimes I truly wonder if it would be easier to try to survive in the jungle or on a desert island rather than our urban jungle.  In the real jungle you have very few, albeit very important concerns; food, water, shelter.  In the urban jungle you have to worry about people stealing your identity and your credit card information.  My friend Ted has been traveling the world and has used many products that he found helpful.  This is one of them.  Maybe we need to start a topic of where in the world is Ted today and what the heck is he buying…..

Take a look at this video:

So, here’s the product that Ted has researched and recommends.  It prevents the devices from reading the chips with your credit card information.  They are styling too!  Kinda reminds me of what the AV squad used to carry in High School.
It can be found here if you want to buy one (FYI,I do not get any money from the referral).  I do love a good bargain though!

I thought I would start a Post where we can share products that we find useful in our everyday urban survival.  My friend Ted sent the following email to me recently and with his permission, I am sharing it with you.  There are some pretty novel anti-theft components to these bags.  Feel free to share ideas. Thanks Ted!

Hi Bruce, here is something you might find interesting for your blog if you don’t know it already. Check out this site:
Barbara and I travel quite a bit and I don’t like carrying a wallet in my back pocket if I can help it especially when I am driving.  After having a few fanny packs and sometimes having them open accidentally I did a little research and found the above product.  I purchased the “Pacsafe Stashsafe 100 Anti-Theft Hip Pack” and was pretty impressed with it.  People that are interested in it should check out the waist size.  The waist band has a stainless steel cable that goes through it and can be locked with the enclosed paddle lock.  The pouch itself has a crisscross stainless steel mesh to prevent it from being slashed open.  Check it out if you have time.
