Where do I start?
We have put together a great list of websites here on how to get started with prepping. You will find experience all across the board with all kinds of prepping topics. We are not planning to reinvent the wheel here so instead of our own experience (which is mainly with hurricanes), we are going to point you in the many directions that there are on the internet about how to get started prepping for yourselves. We are not associated with any of these websites. We are listing them for your convenience. Right click the links to open in new tabs so you can come back here for more links.
Don’t get overwhelmed thinking you have to do all this at once. It can start with as little as picking up a few extra things at the store the next time you go.

Quote: “When people first start prepping, they usually make a few mistakes. I know I did. Sometimes it’s because they get caught up in the idea of prepping and rush into it without taking time to plan and really consider what they’re preparing for. Other times it is simply because they don’t have enough information. If only I had known then what I know now.”
Lots of questions you didn’t know you might want to ask! Such as “What is a Prepper?”, “What are they Preparing For?”, “What are some common myths about preppers?”, and “How much food does a prepper store?” I think some of the answers will ease your mind if you are new to prepping.
