Since childhood I have always felt a need to be prepared. Most of my family thinks I am over reacting. They allow me to do some things but put the brakes on when I ask to be more prepared. Two nights ago when talking with my husband ( frequent sorce of tention) he said to make a list and plan for what I want to do then he would think about it. He doesn't want to spend all kinds of money for the stored food and supplies only to have them go to waist. I am looking for support and I want to learn how to do this. I know it will be an investment. How can I balance what I believe we should be doing and what I am able to do?
