12 Months of Prepping provides enough of the basics to get you by for a short period with the end result being that you will be more prepared than 90% of your neighbors.

I eat out of my stash, there is only hubby and i, so sometimes food need to be eaten or they go to waste after a year or two. i shop at discount stores and off the clearance shelves. so i end up with a lot of food for a smaller amount of money. i dont buy anything name brand, unless i have a coupon or there is a deal to make it cheaper. i coupon big time too. i have food in several spots in my home. i am looking into making a fake wall to store food into as well. so if we get raided, they wont get all of the supplies. i reuse all jars for making jar meals, so we can more or less stay make our food last longer. i also reuse kitty litter jugs for toilet and bathing water, as well as for making my own laundry soap, and i reuse my laundry jugs and make my own fabric softener for over a year now. i still use Oxi Clean instead of bleach for my whites and uniforms. Dollar Tree sells a spray called Totally Awesome for laundry, that takes the place of Shout, it works better and there is more of it for $1. Happy Stashing!

>>Can you chop wood with a machete?<< Oh, boy, you sure can. You can take down small trees with a machete.

Any situation for which a year’s worth of food is insufficient would be an apocalypse, and that requires a whole different level of prep which very few are interested in taking on.

Prepping for a fairly generic disaster is actually pretty straightforward, involving providing water, food, the means to cook it, cash, first aid supplies, means of getting out of town if sheltering in place doesn’t work, defense, and so forth. if you enjoy camping a couple times a year (what I refer to as heavy camping I.e. driving to a prepared site with your tent and cooking gear etc. rather than backpacking) you will already have a lot of the gear needed and know how to use it. Add the canned and dried food you usually eat, sufficient for a week or a couple months or whatever period you think appropriate, and you will be in better shape than 95% of your neighbors.

Assume that for whatever reason, your taps won’t work – there is no water coming into your home. What else do you have? Do you have bottled water somewhere? Did you know there is about 50 gallons of water stored in your water heater? There’s also a few gallons in the tank of your toilet! If you have an outside water source – such as a lake, creek or storm drain – do you have a way to filter it? Your first goal with water should be to be able to provide your family with 2 weeks worth of water and a way to continue filtering found water after that. Here is a great place to start learning about water.

For the first time in over a century, London’s murder rate has overtaken New York City’s. The rise in murders is mostly due to an upswing in knife attacks. While both cities have severe gun control (and have had it for a very long time), it is interesting to note that New York’s is a local ban while London’s is a nation-wide ban. You can still obtain a firearm by driving a short distance in New York (legal issues aside). Also of note is that while firearms are considered the great equalizer when it comes to size and power of opponents, knifes favor the larger more powerful opponent. In essence, gun control has failed miserably in both locations, but London is now considering severe knife controls. Since we all know that only law abiding citizens, by definition, obey the law, criminals will now have a further advantage over their victims in London. Thanks to H.L. for the link. Every decision we make should err on the side of adaptability whether at work or at home, join a gym or take up hiking? The food we eat, should we grow it or hunt it?
