Suggested Projects

  1. Do an inventory on your food, water and preparedness supply to see where you are in terms of short and long-term preparedness. At this point, you should have a multi-level stock of preparedness foods to last long-term (up to 12 months).
  2. Consider purchasing more freeze dried goods (They last for 25 years, so it’s a great investment in your long-term preparedness).
  3. Start practicing those survival and homesteading skills!

Prepper’s Tip

  1. Research which items will be most valuable in an emergency.
