If my hubs ever asks me if I'm going overboard, I politely ask him to step his ### out of my life boat, cause I'm not feeding or fending for those not willing to look after themselves. Think I've only had to do this twice and it was right after we were married.

Seriously though, it's not as expensive to prep as some sites want you to believe. There's no good reason to buy the 'year supply of food', unless you are dead set on shopping for what you like to eat in the amounts you want to eat them in. Same with water, clothing, and other things.

well i found a product called MMS and I have enough to purify 2000 gallons of water, Ive been collecting my items slowly over the past two years. So I really do have a great start. I don't have massive food, because if i bug in thats great but if i have to bug out ,you can only carry so much.

That is true, you are limited by what you can carry. We don't plan on leaving, but if we do, I'm set up to take as much as I can.

G'day. Your situation sounds like mine - I'm the prime minister in the house, and the Mrs is Minister of Domestic Warfare and Finance. I am hoping there there is a little more time to build up some stock with our limited resources.

Hi folks. I think I will start a thread titled..."prepp'n on a dime." see you there.
I didn't realize that just my introduction could cause such a stir, but in this day and age the sheeple are starting to wake up a see not all is good out there. and though most of us can't go out and just set ourselfs up with all the prepper items we need right away preppin on a dime really is easy. when ever i get a new item it's like christmas, when i get to go out and actually use the item for it's intention, well that's just fantastic.......sorry for rambling.
