Sandbags and your home

I plan on bugging in, with my brothers, Mother, and Mother in Law and a few others. My house is brick except 20' or so in the front. What would you do to sandbag windows and such? I know get the bags but would you collect sand to fill the bags from new construction (the yard or two that is left after it's use it complete). I would, but don't know, should I just build a sand pile in the back on top of a tarp with bisqueen covering it from the elements? Where can you get good sandbags to be filled? As far as the sandbags, they would be in the house around windows and all so as not to bring attention to the house.
Ya'll done got me scared of the boogie man.

Sandbags are also used to fortify defensive positions.

Get a couple & try shooting through them.

I have some that I got last Hurricane season.

Usually the announcement will go out prior to an evacuation on where you can pick them up for free.

The way we were taught to use sandbags is similar to laying brick, stagger them & use a 1x6 to build a shooting port.
You're welcome.

Thing about the boogie man is, he checks for me under his bed before he goes to sleep...
