26 Ultimate Tips for Bugging In

Pro Tip

When storing food over the long term, especially bulk food such as grains and dried beans, you need to keep it from going bad. Seal the food in airtight, food-grade containers, and put oxygen absorbers into the containers to help maintain freshness.

Pro Tip

Make sure to have a portable thermometer to test the temperature of your food. This will ensure it is fully cooked and safe to eat.

Pro Tip

Be sure not to have lights showing from your windows at night. It will attract unwanted attention. If you have lights that might be visible, use garbage bags or something dark to black out the windows so the light won’t show through.

Pro Tip

Close off rooms you aren’t using. This will keep the heat localized to where you need it, and it will keep you warmer while using less fuel.

Pro Tip

When operating a portable heater, there is always a risk of carbon monoxide buildup. You should always ensure the room or space you are heating is well ventilated, and you should have a battery-operated carbon monoxide detector on hand to ensure your safety.
