When I think about prepping I see so many ways to start that I quickly become overwhelmed and can't seem to form a clear plan. Where should I begin? What are the most important aspects? There are just two of us -- my husband and I. We are living in a small town in north Louisiana. We want to be prepared for a possible economic collapse, and we would also like to be prepped well enough for our parents to join us, if necessary. We don't have a bug out plan, and we aren't certain we could bug out at all. I know everything is situational, and it is difficult to prep for every scenario. I just need some ideas to get us started! We have wooded land in a few nearby areas where we could build shelter. Both areas have access to water and wildlife. We could have a large garden, if needed, but we don't currently have one. You see how my mind works, and quickly bogs down with "could do" scenarios that have yet to materialize thus far. Any discussion on this matter is certain to help! Thanks so much to everyone who responds.
