Inside the Mind of a Prepper – Saving as a mental tool for prepping

Prepping is a mindset. It’s about having a belief system to govern each of your actions. It’s about carefully analyzing each decision and understanding the potential ramifications, and committing to those ideals fully. While the American economy has improved, many are still wary that a sudden destabilization is on the horizon, and the societal pillars of today will soon be wiped out and leave a world in which every man (and woman) must fight for themselves. So what can we do to prepare for that? Stocking up valuable supplies like food and water, yes, but how do we prepare mentally for the upcoming times?

The Beginning Prepper’s Guide to Firearms – Just published!

Beginning Prepper's Guide to FirearmsFinally, after much (gentle, of course) prodding and poking, I have managed to get hubby to publish his first prepping book, and on a topic that needs clarity, too –  a guide to firearms!  He has been wanting to write this book for a long time, but publishing is a time and labor-intensive effort (especially if you want it to be a good product, and he does)!   It also involves a bit of putting oneself “out there” for other people to criticize.

I am happy to say that I was able to help him get this project off the ground.  I did a good bit of the formatting and internal link building, but he did the hard work of  explaining the different types of firearms and why you might want to choose a particular one (or more).  Pictures are included for easy identification.  Since I am not very knowledgeable about firearms, I am very happy to say that he is an expert in this topic!

How Connected are you to “The Grid?”

Like many preppers, I am more connected to “The Grid” (including water, electricity, gas etc) than I want to be; an unavoidable by-product of suburban living. Grid-living is an addiction of sorts. And the first step in understanding any addiction is awareness. This is no different. This post shows you how I accomplished an awareness of my homes connections to The Grids and how you can too.
