Freedom Lantern Review And Giveaway

Click here to view the original post.

When lightning strikes your town and the power goes out at night, what do you do? Incredibly, most people still reach for candles, even though they’re the cause of nearly 2,000 house fires each year in America.

We’ve discovered the solution to problem, and it’s a light that won’t ever start a fire.

It’s called the Freedom Lantern, and for the next two weeks you can win one. But before we share the details on the contest, let’s discuss what makes this gadget so great.

First, it looks just like a kerosene lantern but is cool to the touch. The LED light won’t set the curtains or the couch on fire – or the toilet paper, for that matter. No more worrying about the kids getting too close to the candles.

Second, it’s easily rechargeable, thanks to the USB cord that’s included. And with the super-efficient LED bulbs inside, we’ve had customers tell us they’ve used it for days and days – with it still running.

Third, it has a dim switch, allowing you to use it for bright emergency light during a storm or simply as a faint bedtime reading light during normal times.

Here’s the coolest part: the light flickers just like a candle – and you can literally blow it out. (The kids and grandkids will love that part of it – watch the video to see it in action.)

This is one of our most popular products, and once you have one, you’ll see why.

If you don’t want to wait for the contest to end and want to buy right away, click here to buy your own Freedom Lantern.

Briefcase Backup Review And Giveaway

Click here to view the original post.

Everyone likes giveaways, right? I mean, who doesn’t throw their name in the hat when there’s a chance to win something? And if it’s a really good prize, they’ll really want to win.

Well, we’ve got a really good prize for you. We’re giving away one of our Briefcase Backup units. Yeah, that’s right — the portable electric power unit that we sell for $497 and others sell for double that … we’re giving one away.

This is a great unit, providing you with 120-volt AC, 12-volt DC (cigarette lighter adapter) and 5-volt DC (via USB) for running just about anything you might want to run when you’re out camping, fishing, hunting, at the beach or even on the top of a mountain, backpacking. It also will provide you a source of emergency electric power whenever the lights go out. In today’s world, that’s a necessity.

The two internal 10-watt, monocrystalline solar panels will recharge the unit, so even when you’re waaaaay out there and can’t plug it in to recharge, you can still have electrical power. That’s a real convenience, and it’s all self-contained in a rugged, military-style ABS plastic case, with a carrying handle, just like a briefcase. When opened, the solar panels recharge the internal battery and when closed, there’s an access panel to get to the power connections. There’s even a LCD display, so you’ll know how much power you’ve got left.

How’s that for a giveaway? Others are doing drawings for $50 items, but we’re giving away something that’s worth 10 times that much … or even more if you count what others are charging for it.

So, what’s to lose? Wouldn’t you like to take this baby along on your next little trip? You know you don’t want to miss out.

Fruit Juice in the Pantry — Giveaway!

Click here to view the original post.

Mott's Fruit Juice giveawayOne of my favorite memories from my son’s early childhood was coming home one day and finding him hosting a kiddie cocktail party in our garage. Ever hospitable, he had provided each of his little friends with a bottle of water or juice. The kids, ages 3-5, were standing around, sipping their drinks, and, so help me, it truly looked like quite a sophisticated gathering, minus any tipsy behavior!

#mottsmoments #sweepstakes

#mottsmoments #sweepstakes

While my kids were growing up, we always kept a bottle of juice on hand in the fridge, since, sometimes, kids want something other than water or milk. I knew to stay away from sugary drinks and always opted for juices that contained only natural sugar from the fruit itself, such as Mott’s® and my creative offspring turned them into slushies and frozen juice pops.

This week my family revisited our juice cocktail party days with Mott’s® Apple Cherry juice. It’s a new flavor with no added sugar and a ton of Vitamin C. It’s slightly sweet and tart and, mixed with chilled, diet lemon-lime soda, was refreshing on a warm spring day in Texas.

Try Mott’s — Enter a giveaway!

Here at The Survival Mom, we spend a lot of time talking about saving money and raising smart, healthy, and prepared kids, and this giveaway will help you do both. Mott’s® is sponsoring a social media sweepstakes to promote their products, and winners receive a $100 Walmart gift card!

TIP: A Mott’s individual juice box inside a zipped plastic bag is a handy drink to add to a kid’s emergency kit. The natural sugars will give her a boost and the drink will help keep her hydrated.

To enter this contest, post a photo with Mott’s Apple Cherry Juice and tell why it is perfect for meal time (give the new Apple Cherry juice a try!). Share it on Instagram and/or Twitter, and use the hashtags #MottsMoments and #sweepstakes to make your entry official. Both hashtags are required. This sweepstakes ends on June 2, 2016.

Screenshot_20160504-101436

Last, register your social media share at THIS LINK. Be sure to include your Instagram or Twitter handle (mine is @TheSurvivalMom on Twitter and thesurvivalmom on Instagram), name, and email in order for Mott’s to contact you if you win. And I do hope at least one of my readers is a winner!

The Survival Mom and juice bottles

If I were to tell you only about this fun sweepstakes, I wouldn’t be The Survival Mom! Here are a few survival tips you can use:

  • For food storage purposes, bottled juices are shelf stable, unopened, for at least 3 months. Store in a cool, dark location.
  • Over the years, I have repurposed empty juice bottles in a couple of different ways. I refilled them with water for a stash of emergency water, but usually, I reuse them to store dry foods, such as rice, cornmeal, and oats. The plastic bottles are made of food safe PET material. To extend the shelf life of the food so it doesn’t lose flavor, texture, or nutrients, I keep it stored at the coolest temperatures possible and in a dark location.
  • Empty juice bottles are also handy for keeping a small supply of pet food and kitty litter in the trunk of the car. Unlike a cardboard box or paper bag, the heavy duty plastic won’t rip and the tightly capped bottle insures that spillage is unlikely.
  • In an extreme scenario, juice provides additional nutrients your body needs that plain water doesn’t. For example, the Mott’s® Apple Cherry juice contains 120% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin C.
  • Any mylar drink pouch can be repurposed to store small amounts of food, laundry soap, or other dry goods. Click here for complete instructions.

How about you? Have you tried the new Mott’s® Apple Cherry juice? What do you look for in a fruit juice for your family and is it part of your food storage?

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Mott’s®. The opinions and text are all mine.

Perfect, Portable Heat: The Honeywell Infrared Heater — GIVEAWAY!

Click here to view the original post.

Perfect, Portable Heat: The Honeywell Infrared Heater via The Survival Mom

I’m in love with this heater and so is every other member of my family. Honeywell’s MyEnergySmart Infrared Heater arrived at my doorstep, perfectly timed with a cold spell that hit our part of Texas in January. Our older house, built in 1972, doesn’t have the greatest duct system, and it seems that our family room is always chilly.

honeywell infrared heaterIt’s been many years since I used a portable heater and naturally, safety was my first concern. Is this infrared heater safe on carpet? Do I need to worry about our pets wandering too close to the heat source? Does the exterior of the heater become too hot to touch?

The answers, as I discovered from the instructional manual and safety information, were:

  • Yes, it’s safe on carpet.
  • There is no blast of hot air emitting from the unit, and it’s perfectly safe around pets.
  • No, the heater does not become hot.

My husband remarked, “I like this heater because it doesn’t dry out the air. It just gives off gentle, warm air that is comfortable and never overheats the room.”

My son said, “I love this heater, and I’m keeping it for myself!”

Our winter energy bills aren’t especially high, but our house does have a few cold pockets here and there, and this infrared heater is just perfect for those areas. However, the unit is actually designed for larger rooms than our small family room (150 square feet or so).

A few other features I appreciate are:

  • The EnergySmart technology actually regulates energy consumption.
  • Regular use could cut down on our power bills.
  • There’s a LED panel that indicates power usage, the room’s temperature, and the desired temperature.
  • There are 3 different pre-set heat settings, and you can set your own custom temperatures.
  • Copper and stainless steel reflectors are used to enhance heating.
  • The unit is on wheels for easy transportation.
  • A remote control can be used to change settings from a distance. This is perfect for anyone with mobility issues.
  • The small unit would be perfect for dorm rooms and chilly bedrooms.

Win one for yourself!

I’m excited that Honeywell is providing a new Infrared Heater to one lucky winner, right here on my blog! I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I do.

Important details

  • Giveaway begins on Tuesday, February 16 and ends at midnight on Tuesday, February 23.
  • Open to U.S. residents only.*
  • Winner will be selected at random and notified within 48 hours of contest’s end. Winner will have 72 hours in which to reply to our email, after which a new winner will be randomly selected.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

* Wonder why some giveaways are for U.S. residents only? It’s not because of stingy sponsors but because of international laws and regulations. For example, Canada, a country I love, has different legal definitions for giveaways and contests than does the U.S. Winners in other countries may have to pay import charges. I wish it were different for my international readers, but ignoring these laws could cause big problems for some sponsors.

Prepare Magazine Book Giveaway

Its a Disaster Giveaway

Its a Disaster Giveaway

Once again I’m happy to join with PREPARE Magazine in another series of Book Reviews and Giveaways. It is my hope that these will help you gain insight into what to get for you Preparedness Library (or perhaps you’ll be the Winner!).

I’ve had the privilege to work with author Janet Liebsch in the past and it has been a real joy. She is a wealth of information and also very passionate about what she does!

Here’s what the Reviewers at PREPARE Magazine have to say about this book:

The Book: It’s a Disaster…and what are YOU gonna do about it? has been used in First Responder Training across the country! How much better could your family be prepared than to have on hand the very same book that so many First Responders use?

The book doesn’t read like a novel nor is it difficult to ‘get through.’ In fact, it lends itself to reading in short segments of time based upon your need, area of potential disaster or interest. Even if you are in the midst of a crisis, the way this book is set up – it’s so easy to find what you need in just seconds that it is a far better field guide than most other emergency manuals we’ve reviewed.

From Family Emergencies to Business Preparedness or Natural Disasters to Man-Made Mayhem, the book: It’s a Disaster…and what are YOU gonna do about it? really does cover the widest base of events we’ve ever seen in one single book.

Not only does it cover the events – it gives you the wherewithal to handle living through them right while they are happening. The step-by-step bullet points are easy to spot and follow thus they help you stay on track in the midst of chaos! It covers so many possible events in order to help you feel ready with almost endless contingency plans.

The authors also offer this as a Community Preparedness involvement incentive that can become fundraisers for a school, church group or community planners. This outreach is unique in that the desire is to get these books in the hands of more grass-roots movements rather than hit a ‘best seller list’. This shows the true heart of the authors – to help communities and people prepare for life’s emergencies. We applaud and stand with them in this effort!

As the author’s state on their website, the book: It’s a Disaster…and what are YOU gonna do about it? truly “helps families and businesses ‘be aware, be prepared, and have a plan’ for most types of emergencies and disasters (including Terrorism). The 266-page paperback provides quick-reference instructional bullets in 2-color format. It is not written to alarm people, rather it suggests tips on what to think about and do before, during and after specific types of scenarios, as well as how to administer basic first aid.”

If you have not had the opportunity to get your hands on this valuable resource guide, we highly recommend that you do. We hope you’ll enter this Giveaway for your opportunity to win it and add it to your bug out bag, emergency bin or back pack!

$100 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway

National Preparedness Month Giveaway

National Preparedness Month Giveaway

Are you Prepared?

We use National Preparedness Month to try to help everyone get a step ahead of the game, but we use the whole year to continue our efforts in sharing our education to help you learn and think out of the box.

If you don’t feel very prepared, the best place to start is getting yourself prepared for a 3 to 7 day power outage.  Make a list of the things that you would need to get you by for that time frame and then start to expand.  Consider food, water, shelter if necessary, lighting, medications, alternative power, heat, etc.

When it comes to preparing for the unexpected, this should really be a family affair!  Discuss these things with your family and having good communications with your family and a well thought out plan is extremely important.  Here is information from Ready.gov on family communications.

Something else to always considered are those with special needs, the elderly and your pets.  My son has a special diet and that is something we always think about and prepare for.  Do you have a special diet that you need to contend with?  If so, have you given thought to how you would handle this in an unexpected situation?  You may find my post helpful titled Why Natural Health, Exercise and Whole Foods Play A Role In Survival.  For those of you with pets, Ready.gov has some information that may be helpful in caring for your animals.

Preparedness is for everyone and this video is very helpful with the captioning and sign language.

Our site focuses on preparedness as more of a lifestyle versus something you temporarily prepare for, therefore, I encourage you to signup for our weekly newsletter where we share our knowledge, encouragement and inspiration on a regular basis.  We feel very led to help others and also feel that now more than ever it is important for everyone to clearly be prepared!

Be sure to enter the Family Preparedness Giveaway for $100 Amazon Gift Card below and in the comments below share with us what areas of preparedness that you are still in need of help?

The Prepper’s Complete Book of Disaster Readiness by Jim Cobb (Review/Giveaway)

Click here to view the original post.

Prepare Magazine Book Giveaway

Disaster Preparedness Giveaway

Disaster Preparedness GiveawayMy Friend’s over at PREPARE Magazine are running a series of Book Reviews and Giveaways that are sure to help you add to your Preparedness Library.  There will be a giveaway EVERY OTHER week upcoming so continue to stop back and see what the next book that will be available to you!

The Prepper’s Complete Guide to Disaster Readiness by Author Jim Cobb is the quintessential preparedness primer. It is suitable reading for both the novice and seasoned prepper. Almost every topic is covered in this book yet it still it goes into great detail without distracting from the primary focus of laying a strong foundation. Disaster Readiness is a broad topic but author, Jim Cobb knows his topic well and has done a fantastic job of breaking things down into clearly distinct chapters and sections to help the reader grasp the scope of being well prepared.

The chapters offer a wide range, yet build from “Why to prepare” to more specific details such as “Where to go” in a disaster.  The Prepper’s Complete Guide to Disaster Readiness will take you on a sequential journey without hype or conspiracy. Unlike day to day life, this book is tightly segmented in its approach so that you are able to locate a particular area on which you need to focus and review to it regularly.

Jim enlightens the reader on areas usually untouched such as how Disaster Readiness affects relationships (Children, Pets and Elderly). This is a book that we highly recommend regardless how long you have been on the preparedness journey.

This is not Jim’s first book, he is a very well established author and you can find many of his books reviewed here on our website, but he is also an authority figure in the educational video series Make Ready To Survive.  You can also find his articles along with mine in the Surviver’s Edge Magazine.  Jim is an extreme wealth of knowledge and a definite resource for quality information, be sure to visit him on his website as well at SurvivalWeekly.com.

To get a good feel for Jim and what he is all about, you can listen to my interview with him on Mountain Woman Radio.

Our hope is that the winner of this book will be both encouraged and share what he/she learns to help others.  This is a foundational addition to your emergency preparedness library!

I just wanted to be sure to remind you to visit PREPARE Magazine and sign up for their FREE online magazine where you will find my articles contributed on a regular basis.  I really am drawn to the message that they share and not only do they have the FREE online magazine available to you, but they have a subscription-based print magazine where you will also find my materials being shared AND they have a membership area on the website where they offer some really in-depth webinars and additional information for those really interested in diving into preparedness.  So be sure to visit PREPARE Magazine quickly and sign up!
