Attention Busy Moms!
(And pretty much all humans)

Are you ready to finally get a start on Emergency Preparedness for your family?
Have more peace of mind and stop worrying that you're not doing enough!

You know you should make this a priority, but you just can't seem to get started.

You don't have
enough time

With kids and church and work and sports and carpools and meal planning and grocery shopping, how in the world can you possibly tackle Emergency Preparedness?

You don't know where to start

You want to do it all. You know you should do it all. But since you can't do it all, you do nothing. 72-Hour Kits, Food Storage, Water Storage, Emergency Fund, JUST TELL ME WHERE TO START, RIGHT?!

You just can't get organized

You have started a billion different projects in the name of Emergency Preparedness, but haven't finished any of them. You even have a Pinterest Board dedicated to things you'll get day...

What if just one month from now:


See how quick and easy getting prepared can be by taking these SIMPLE steps toward preparedness for your family.

I'm Melanie

I create Emergency Preparedness resources for you

I’m a mom of 4 and stepmom of 3.  Our life is CRAZY BUSY – just ask our neighbors. 🙈   I know how hard it can be to keep up with the daily demands of having a large family.  And I know that working on any sort of emergency preparedness can feel like an insurmountable task.  


In fact, that’s why I started this website.  I started it so I could help people like you get their families prepared….one day at a time.  Over the past couple years, I have been breaking topics down smaller and smaller, to make them more manageable for busy moms.  The result is this ebook.  


You asked, and I listened.   This is the first of hopefully many ebooks to break down important topics so that ANYONE can accomplish them, no matter how crazy their lives are!

What Cassie Thinks

“Melanie {Plan for Awesome} is such an incredible resource! She is smart, thorough in her research and explains things in a way that isn’t intimidating. She is a genius yet also relatable. You can feel her passion and you just want to be a part of it! Her printables are adorable and she makes it fun. Instead of feeling guilty for not having already implemented the plans and strategies, I feel empowered and encouraged to start now. I trust her direction and find myself turning to her blog every time I need solutions and inspiration in leading my family.”

Instead of feeling guilty for not having already implemented the plans and strategies, I feel empowered and encouraged to start now.

Here is what's included:

While the tasks in this first week would be boring for kids, this week is essential for the success of the rest of the month. 

These are the days where you set things up, ensuring you have the tools and knowledge you’ll need to have things go smoothly the rest of the month.

You will be

  • Familiarizing yourself with the location of your utility shut offs
  • Purchasing a few low-cost essential items (if you don’t have them already)
  • Printing a few documents you’ll need in the following weeks.

Once you complete Week 1, you will be prepared to bring your teenagers in on the action for Weeks 2 & 3.

This week you will start putting what you learned/acquired last week into action.

You will be learning (and teaching your teens)

  • How to operate your garage door manually
  • How to shut off your electricity
  • How to shut off your gas
  • How to shut off your water

You will also 

  • Find a place for fire escape ladders (if you have them)
  • Mount and/or perform maintenance on fire extinguisher(s)

This week you will continue working with your older-ish kids and learning together.

You will be 

  • Testing smoke alarms
  • Learning about a Family Emergency Plan
  • Familiarizing yourselves with CPR
  • Discussing consumables you may want to start keeping a bit extra of in your home
  • Preparing a grab list for possible evacuation

Once you complete Week 3, you will be prepared to bring your kids of all ages in on the action for Week 4.

This week is the culminating event of the entire month.

By now you will have the tools and knowledge to teach your children of all ages about the following topics:


  • Power outages
  • Fire safety
  • YOUR specific Family Emergency Plan
  • Earthquakes
  • Evacuation Grab List

Once you complete Week 4, your ENTIRE FAMILY will have a better understanding of multiple emergencies and what they can do to stay safe. 

You will have real tools, printed instructions, and a firm plan going forward as a family.  

Now if that isn’t PLANNING FOR AWESOME, I don’t know what is!

YES, YES, YES!  This is absolutely for EVERYONE!  Although I have included helpful tips and resources to teach children along the way, the actual tasks are just as important to do, whether you have kids or not.

YES!  I mean, if you hop on Amazon to buy a flashlight and decide to do your Christmas shopping while you’re on there, then I can’t make any promises.  I will admit, there are a couple days where it’s going to take a very full and focused 15 minutes.  But there are also a handful of days that will take you under 5 minutes, so…🤷‍♀️

This is a self-paced schedule. You can definitely lump days together.  Life happens!  In fact, many people choose to do an entire week’s tasks in one day (often over the weekend).

No.  You need to follow the schedule in order because some days build on previous days and you don’t want to get stuck later on down the road.

97.  Not a typo.  97.  But that’s because it’s pretty.  There aren’t very many words on a bunch of the pages.  Don’t worry.

The printer-friendly version is 30 pages.

Yes and no.  I truly hope you’ll share this with them – but I also truly hope you will be honest and pay for each copy per household.  I want this to get into as many homes as possible, and I have made this super affordable to accomplish this.  So please direct your friends and family to this page where they can purchase their own copy, or go ahead and snag one for them today at a fraction of the cost!  Just add an “Additional Copy” in your cart (or multiple additional copies…one for each person. you plan on sharing the PDFs with).  Thank you so much for your integrity.  That’s what allows me to continue to make products like this for you!

I do have special rates for wards/stakes, as well as family reunions.  Please email me for pricing on those groups. 

If you are getting a group of friends together, that discount is already available in the shop under the listing as “Additional Copy.”
