Wow prepping… did you really expect everything that you’re reading? I remember having a note pad beside me while reading other blogs and the list went something like:
SHTF, OSPEC, O2 aborbsers, mylar bags, Ball Blue Book, pressure canner, water bath canner, long-term storage, working pantry, coupons, books, beans, bullets, band-aids…. and most of these (which this is a brief list) had a question mark beside each one!
I was quite overwhelmed and even when my husband and I sat down to talk about these things, I felt my head spinning! I wanted to shove my head further into the sand and forget I’d ever heard the word “prepping.”
However! It’s really not that hard to do. I promise AND you CAN do it on a very tight budget! We are proof of that!
So, for the next few weeks, I’m going to break all this down based on the actions we took and put in place. I look back over the past 18 months and honestly can’t believe how far we’ve come. We still have a ways to go, but we are much better off now than then!
Please follow along and I’ll try hard to post 2 post weekly dedicated to this subject. I’ll also add sources and resources (that are the least expensive based on my research) for you!
So, the first thing:
Prepping becomes a lifestyle. If you think you will just store a bunch of Ramen noodles and you’ll be fine – well, you might want to check back on this series of posts!
Prepping is also a mindset that incorporates survival skills, couponing (for us), disaster readiness, and overall general preparedness skills for whatever your emergency may be.
To me these are two most important things to understand first. If your heart and mind aren’t into – you’re body never will be!
