I have always been raised/lived in the country, where every boy , and most girls get guns for thier b-days and christmas after age 10 lol.
We have always canned our own food so to say where did I start is not fair.

I would recommend someone just getting started cover all bases at once.
In that I mean start with a cheap pistol and a shotgun.
Start storing the basic of foodstuffs, and water. You will find over time that you spend less on your everyday food bills when you buy bulk. So you will find that the sting of pack ratting will be soothed a little over time.
Prepping does not have to be a culture shock, you dont have to dump your lifes savings in it.
Its more just the thought of having extra, safe and saved.
After you have a week of water and food stashed, then think of First aid stuff. Then 3 more days of W&F, then 100 more shells for each firearm, then 4 more days of W&F, then consider upgrading your firearms, then 10 more gallons of water, You are now 2 weeks ahead of 90% of your neighbors, then a compass and some topo maps of your area, F&W do it again, Then a fishing pole, and some tackle, take a trip and practice using it. AH, didnt that feel good, just to relax on the side of some water, daydreaming about all the other cool stuff you can scounge up, or how many more feet of tunnel you need.

I agree with Hades in that it is much easier to start prepping for basically everything. Once you have a good base you can go in to specific scenarios. However, just prepping for everything and keeping it "All encompassing" would most likely be the easiest!

I hope this helps you

Welcome Keven Tordoff!

IMHO, the first place to start is with a plan, as Hades mentioned in a different post, are you bugging in or out? what are you prepping for? whats your location? whats the weather/climate like where you're at, or where you plan to bug out to?
after that, me personally i started building a survival (bug out bag) bag for everyone in the house, and one for the car.
there is an in depth bug out bag supply list thread you may want to look into.
