10 Ideas for Being Prepared in 2022

Emergency Preparedness

Over the last couple of years, I’ve been thinking of adding a new section to the Tiny House Blog. Along the lines of living tiny and within your means is the idea of being prepared for the unexpected. It could be a natural disaster, an interrupted shipping system as we’ve seen in the last year with the pandemic, or any other unforeseen event.

I don’t claim to be an expert in this area but figure we can learn together.

Here are a few of the areas I’d see covering and I am open to any suggestions from you my reader. I’m leaning toward a weekly post and will try to gather the best information I can from the internet to share with you.

1. Heating:

I live in cold country and in the winter it gets downright cold. What options do I have as a backup heating source if the power and gas are shut off?
