piggy bank

by Karen

We all know prepping isn’t easy. Heck, with increasing grocery prices and uncertainty in the economy, is extremely difficult for most of us to afford to live in the here and now. Trying to purchase extra food, water, and supplies can stretch some people’s budgets so thin it can be difficult to manage. If you think there is just no way you can adequately prep, take some time to consider ways in which

How to Make a Family Survival Plan

by Karen

It’s one thing to stock up on all the necessary food, water, and supplies and make a survival plan for a single person, but let’s face the truth of the matter. Most of us have more than one person to plan for and stocking up on necessary items is not enough. Many of us have a family that includes children and maybe even elderly or disabled relatives, and for this reason, we need

by Megan

If you are new to prepping and interested in it but not sure that it’s for you, a great place to start out is with what to have in your EveryDay Carry (EDC) kit. Your EDC kit is made up of items that you commit to carrying with you every day, at all times. The only time you might not have these items on your person might be at home in bed.

When you’re prepping for anything to happen, then you need to make sure that you’ve thought of everything in the process.

by Megan

Although preppers have the reputation of being crazy and paranoid, the truth is that most of usa re truly happier than those who don’t prep. We have a myriad of different opinions about exactly what kind of event is looming and what its impact will be, but they all agree on one thing, our current way of life is in jeopardy. So if preppers feel that impending doom is looming just over the

by Karen

Fortunately, there is a compact solution that is perfect, particularly for men, who don’t carry purses in which

What is TEOTWAWKI and How to Survive it

meteorite

by Megan

“TEOTWAWKI” means The End Of The World As We Know It. Wow, that sounds pretty bad, right? The truth is not many of us can truly have a real idea of what TEOTWAWKI will actually be like until it’s happening. Your grandparents or great grandparents might have a small inkling if they lived through any part of the Great Depression.

You already know that something is different about the world today than it

by Karen

Part of survival is having enough food, water, and supplies to ensure you can survive for a period of time in any emergency situation, such as a natural disaster or any major catastrophic event, whether it is natural or man-made. But if the event lasts long enough to chew through that food and water and the supplies you have stocked up, then what? Perhaps the most important part of survival isn’t what you

How to Manage Starvation in a Post-SHTF World

starving featured image

by Megan

Any smart prepper has studied how to prepare for an economic collapse or some other disaster that wipes out the power grid and basically sends the world into chaos. Most preppers have a get home bag and/or a bug out bag in an accessible location, and have either a bug out location selected or a plan to fortify their home and bug in with their family.

Along with all this planning, you know

The Ultimate Winter Survival Guide

branch covered with snow

by Megan

“It’s a jungle out there” refers to not just a tropical jungle but a dense forest or even tough city streets. Winter brings cold temperatures, blowing winds, dangerous ice storms, blinding snow, and power outages. To survive whatever is ahead, you have to include the unexpected in cold winter weather. What do you do when “it’s winter out there” and you’re stuck in it?

You cannot prepare for all the possible things that

EDC Keychains

by Karen

In order to truly be prepared for whatever might happen in this world you need to have tools on hand no matter where you are. You might have a way to provide illumination or start a fire in your bug-out bag (BOB), at home, or in your car, but that won’t help you if you can’t access it.

But there is one thing that every person carries with them at all times –

Just what constitutes “SHTF”?

preppers

Whether it is in the pages of this website or countless other places across the Internet the perspective over what constitutes a “SHTF event” is often discussed. Typical characteristics involve power outages, communications down, food shortages, fuel shortages, lawlessness, and economic collapse. Disagreement begins to surface when specifics are put forth.

How will the population react? How much will race play a role? Will civil war break out? Will a top secret government army come
