The Top 50 Things to Disappear from Store Shelves during an Emergency

shelvesNote from Georgene:  I am pleased to post this guest blog entry from my friend Tom Sciacca of CampingSurvival.com.  

Have you ever noticed how, whenever a big storm is predicted, people start rushing to stores to clean them out of every food item and supply they have on the shelves? In one sense, it’s probably good that they are trying to anticipate the emergency, despite being last-minute about it. It sure beats those people who don’t bother to prepare at all, then complain when emergency services are overwhelmed by requests for assistance.

But why panic in the first place? Why not have a stash of necessary items always ready for such an emergency? Even if there isn’t a storm approaching, it’s nice to know that you don’t have to rush out to the store every time you run out of toilet paper. Keeping some extra around the house is always a good idea!

Many preppers, especially those who are serious about their prepping, know that it’s not enough to plan ahead in terms of food storage, shelter, water and bug-out bags. They realize that in order to have some security for the future, it’s very important to do some serious planning today, especially when it comes to saving money.GBSIt

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!

Christmas – a time to join together? Wanna make a group?

Welcome to the holiday period, where money flows freely (but almost always in an outward direction), and plans often get sidetracked in honor of the season’s celebrations. Have you done all your preparations for the holidays? Do you know the who, what when, why and how of your holidays? If not, it’s time to get crackin’ on that! Prepping is not just for disasters! It’s for everyday life, and holidays, too! I’ll admit that the past week or so has been so warm, it’s been hard to even think that it’s nearly time for Christmas. But I hear it’s about to get pretty chilly again soon, and I’m sure that’ll put us all in the mood for some egg nog, yes?
