Helpful Tips 4 Preppers

1. Make a list of what's in your bug-out-bags (in time of chaos, you might not remember you have an item or which bag it's in; when making new purchases you might not remember you already have something . . . yes, I am over 55)

2. Start a folder/notebook for information you've collected - see column at left (include in your BOB)

3. Learn 1 or more new skills:

  - candle or soap making

  - knitting or crocheting

  - canning or dehydrating

  - gardening or farming

  - raise some chickens

  - weaving clothes or baskets

4. Plant trees (fruit and/or nut)

5. Plan a location to meet in time of chaos/danger

6. Have a trial 24 hrs without electricity or water

7. Network with other preppers in your community to be able to share skills and resources

8. Last minute shopping - keep in mind 'must haves' and where you'll go to get them in case of last minute crisis/emergency.  For food, think 'protein' (nuts & seeds, canned or fresh meats and seafood, cheese and eggs).  Also water, flashlights/candles, emergency radio, batteries, blankets are basic necessities to grab.
