After searching through websites, books and watching the news or other shows, I’ve found that there are about a million different threats that could play a role in anyone’s life. Extreme weather, natural disasters, governments, war, and the list goes on. These aren’t only threats to preppers but everyone, prepared or not. Oddly enough when you hear about preppers on popular shows like “Doomsday Preppers”, you hear about how they’re prepared for a specific apocalyptic event that the family being showcased predicts will happen. You would assume that by being prepared for their event du jour that they would also be prepared for anything that could come their way. But it’s not. There are other basic threats specific to preppers that most rarely account for.
Of course, there are always ways to save money on food by becoming an “extreme couponer” and by having what amounts to a warehouse in your home to store it all but usually, it’s best to just know how to do it yourself. One way to cut costs is knowing how to grow your own food. Food that has nutritional value that your family can not just survive on, but thrive on, is key. Also if necessary, knowing how to plant food in inconspicuous or hidden ways could be the difference between life and death because if others know you’re growing a hearty garden, guess whose house they’ll hit first when their supplies are exhausted?
