How to Start Prepping: Your Inner Voice is Telling You It's Time
Have you ever had one of those moments when something just feels “off?” You can’t quite put your finger on it, but you have a sense that things are not right and they could take a turn for the worse. Maybe this feeling has been nagging at you for a while, or maybe it hit you like a ton of bricks yesterday. If this is the case, I urge you to listen to your inner voice – it is telling you that it’s time to start prepping.
What is prepping?
Prepping is simply the act of taking steps to be prepared for a future event or situation. This could be something as small as stocking up on non-perishable food items in case of a weather emergency, or something as large as building an off-grid home in case of an economic collapse. No matter what your particular situation may be, there is no “one size fits all” approach to prepping – you have to tailor your preparations to fit your specific needs and concerns.
The first step in prepping is simply acknowledging that something could happen. This may seem like a no-brainer, but it’s amazing how many people choose to live in denial about the potential for future disasters. If you are one of these people, I urge you to take a look around and see what is happening in the world today. There is no denying that things are becoming increasingly unstable, both politically and economically. From natural disasters to man-made crises, it seems like there is always something waiting to happen. For example, look at the shooting that just happened at that supermarket in Colorado. Who would have thought that something like that could happen so close to home? What is next, civil unrest? An economic collapse? Another pandemic? The possibilities are endless, and it’s better to be prepared for anything than to be caught off guard.
The second step is to start making a plan. This will be different for everyone, but there are some basic things that everyone should consider. First, you need to think about what kind of event or situation you are preparing for. This will help you determine what supplies and skills you will need to get through it. Second, you need to think about your budget. Prepping can be expensive, but there are ways to do it on a tight budget. Third, you need to think about your family and friends. Do they know about your plans? Are they on board with them? If not, you may need to do some convincing.
Is it time to start prepping?
Only you can answer that question. But if you have been feeling like something is off, or you are just not sure what to do next, then it might be time to listen to your inner voice and take action. The best way to protect yourself and your family is to be prepared for anything. The truth is that unless you're prepared now, you won't be ready if something does happen. So in short, the best time to start prepping is now.
How to prep on a budget
Prepping doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, there are many ways to do it on a tight budget. One way is to start small and gradually add to your supplies over time. Another way is to get creative with what you already have. For example, if you have an old coffee can, you can use it to store emergency supplies like matches, bandages, and batteries. You can also use it to start a small fire in case you need to signal for help. There are endless possibilities when it comes to prepping on a budget – you just have to get creative.
Start with a 1 month food supply
Your main goal should be to have at least a 1 month food supply on hand at all times. This may seem like a lot, but it’s really not that difficult to achieve. Start by making a list of all the non-perishable food items you and your family normally eat in a month. Then, start slowly adding to your stockpile until you have enough to last for at least 30 days. Remember, it’s better to have too much than not enough. The alternative is to buy a 1 month food supply bucket. The advantage to an emergency food bucket is that it will already have a shelf life of up to 25 years. This means that you can store it indefinitely and not have to worry about it going bad. It also means that you won't have to rotate your stock and worry about expiration dates. The buckets also have handles that make them easy to carry if you have to leave your house in a hurry.
When it comes to prepping, there is no “right” or “wrong” way to do things. The most important thing is that you are taking the necessary steps to protect yourself and your family.
The third and final step is to take action. This may seem like a daunting task, but it’s important to remember that you don’t have to do everything at once. Start with the basics and gradually add to your supplies and skills as you go. If you take it one step at a time, you will be surprised at how quickly you can become prepared for anything. Taking action also includes staying informed. Read books, listen to podcasts, and watch videos about prepping. The more you know, the better prepared you will be.
