Customer Testimonials

I absolutely love this Mom!! Her medical kits are awesome. They are the the perfect kits for mom with kids on the go. Her sports kit is great for any sport of any age! I just love that I don’t have to think about it…I just keep it in the car and it for any minor emergency.

Best kit out there

I spent months trying to buy everything that a medical kit “should” have and yet when I found this kit I realized it was all there in this small bag that someone else had done all the work for me. This is perfect to keep along in my car for emergencies. I love this and can’t wait to get them for my friends who are pregnant.

Andrea K.

As a civilian Registered Nurse and an Army Nurse Corps veteran, I am pretty particular about what supplies I’ll use on my family when someone needs first aid. This Sports First Aid Kit by PreparaKit is, hands down, the best first aid kit I’ve ever seen. It has name brand supplies in good quantities and is organized in a logical fashion. It’s portable, lightweight and comes in a cute and durable case. Thank you for this great product!

Have you noticed that kids these days give up so quickly?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Or is it just my kids...LOL.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
If you knew me, you would know that I refuse to have kids develop the "helpless" mentality.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Trust me though when I say there have been plenty of times where I wanted SO BAD to just do it for them because it's just quicker, but I had to stop myself.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The rule in our house? If they are asking for help, I need them to have tried 3 different ways to figure it out before we'll jump in.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
This will teach them the confidence to keep trying and also know that we are also there to support them when it gets tough.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You should see the look in their eyes when they see that they were able to figure it out all by themselves.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It takes more effort on the front end to teach but these are skills that will last them a lifetime.⁠⠀

True or false?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
If you pull a white hair, 3 more will grow in its place?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Ok, I'm not sure 3 more will grow back but I'm pretty sure the same white hair will grow back. LOL⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But either way, this is one of the perks of being a mom.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
As much as I don't like the fact that I'm getting "old", having the kids look for my white hairs feel like I'm getting a scalp massage.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Plus, it keeps him busy as we're hanging out in the car when we're waiting around.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Are you also dreading the day you have to dye your hair to cover the grays??⁠⠀

⁠⠀
Woohoo!! #momwin⁠⠀

Would you believe me if I told you that I regularly doubt myself as a mother? Some days I wonder if I'm being too hard on them, if my plans on doing all that I can to make sure I set them up for success as an adult is going to backfire on me?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I then of course am so hard on myself for feeling like I'm not doing enough.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Do you ever feel this way?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Why do we do this to ourselves? I have to remind myself all the time to cut myself some slack and know that I am a good mom.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
We are our worse critic. As I sit here writing this, it's not only a reminder for myself but also for you, to know that we are worth it. That we deserve a day or night out with the girls, or a day of getting pampered without feeling all the guilt.⁠⠀

What is one thing you do for yourself to recharge?⁠⠀

What's more enjoyable than being on vacation and seeing your kids smile, laugh and just having a good ole time?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Being able to do this for them over and over and over again whenever we want, wherever we want.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I'd love to one day soon, be able to take off for the entire summer and just travel and vacation without worrying on the back end about the cost and the guilt of spending so much when we could use that money for something else.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But these 3 are why I do the things I do. Why I am willing to do the hard things when all I really want to do is stay hidden in the comfort of my own home. Why I took a big risk of leaving a stable nursing career.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Everything I have done and have plans to do is for them because #familyiseverything.⁠⠀

What or who keeps you going?⁠⠀

If the thought of getting your kids to do more around the house has ever crossed your mind but you just haven't gotten around to actually doing it, maybe knowing the indirect benefits your kids will be learning in the long run will get you to seriously consider putting together a plan for it.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Things like learning how to be more accountable, developing better habits and routines and ultimately setting them up to be independent, successful adults.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Save this post so when you have an extra moment (like in the bathroom when you're alone or when the kids are asleep), you can come back to read more on it.⁠⠀

Today I want to Insta-thank all of our loyal customers who have left us feedback letting us know how much they love the first aid kits we put together and how helpful it has been for them and their kids.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Creating a product from scratch is not an easy feat, but even more challenging are all the back end stuff that needs to happen in order to share with others that they even exist.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Without your continued feedback and support for our kits, I don't know if I could still continue to be in the trenches to do all the things to grow this business and continue to find more ways to support you and your kids in your everyday life.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
So Thank You and please keep the feedback coming! If you have one of these kits, please share with the rest what you love the most about it.⁠⠀

Sure, it's way easier to just give them what they ask for.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
But what do you think the chances are that they will continue to keep coming back to you, holding out their hand and ask you for more money every time they want something?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Most likely 100% of the time.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What if we could teach our kids earlier on the value of a hard earned dollar?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Imagine how this will impact the relationship they will have with money as they get older? ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I'm betting that they will take it less for granted and will have an easier time in the real world when it's their turn to look for a job to make some money.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What's one thing you wished you were taught as a kid about money that you had to learn the hard way?⁠⠀

I hate to admit it, but some days, I have to be dragged out of my home office to get out and socialize.
But you know what? I’m a nurse turned entrepreneur and I love that I GET to do this.
At the end of the day, I keep going with it, (even though some days, going back to my regular nursing JOB is so tempting), because I know this is my next challenge and goal in life.
And besides, if not for this journey, I wouldn’t be able to meet so many wonderful like minded women leaders like these ladies who are also proactively working towards their dreams.
What do you love about what you do?
