No matter how much I beg, some of you, no doubt haven’t done anything to prepare (you know who you are).
6. Over to the powdered drink mix – go on I’ll wait…Okay, pick up two 72 Ounce Tang Orange drink canisters (provides 100% of the US RDA vitamin C requirement per 8 oz.
7. Off to the vitamin and supplement aisle, pick up 400 tablets “one a day” multivitamin and mineral supplements.
The Prepared Prepper's Cookbook: Over 170 Pages of Food Storage Tips, and Recipes From Preppers All Over America!
I remember reading this some time ago and it made me think that I am already on the road to being prepared and did make the trip to stock up.
I keep a list like this for my last of last minute shopping when I have 2 hours prior notice to everybody else finding out. NUUN fizzy electrolyte replacement tablets are good as well ( usually in the vitamin area ). Good idea but I would take it one step further and by a large jar or two of powdered ascorbic acid. Buy some bottles of Tums tablets and take one Tums tablet in the morning and one in the afternoon as a very cheap and digestible form of calcium for adults (much cheaper than those pricy calcium supplement tablets). Also, was it you who recommended doing a behind-the-ear-down-to-the-shoulder massage stroke to clear ear congestion? One thing to consider when stocking up on Pepto-Bismol is that I was told it contains a hidden form of aspirin. Not TGM, but I put my baking soda in a zip lock to protect from moisture,the zip locks will be useful later. If you have one, a food saver with the bags, will keep the moisture out of the baking soda…and anything else you want to store that absorbs moisture. IMy water froze for about 2 weeks a while back so I had to depend on my stored supply as well as refills that I got from my daughter in town. Another thing I have in my BOB are a couple of ON-GYN pads( I used to have a couple of Kotex pads but my sister suggested the others).
Could you provide me with the studies or data that show vitamin supplements from walmart will not help with serious vitamin deficiencies like scurvy, Beriberi, pellagra, rickets, etc.
I have immediate concern for things my family uses, Others may have opinions, based on their knowledge or some report.
Another way to get some of your vitamins (at least vit c) is to water bath can some citrus fruits. Sw’t Tater, I have been craving water, so much that I am surprised I do not slosh when I walk!
Grumpy Vermonter, I live in MI but it hasn’t been a real cold winter like we normally have. Those are my ideas for you on how to survive (not die) in tough times (you don’t get to pick and choose). Store some things that you do not normally use, But would eat in emergency… for the balloon day, If you properly prepare these things they will last from 2-20 years, depending on the item.
Unique in their beliefs, motivations, and strategies, preppers will go to whatever lengths they can to make sure they are prepared for any of life’s uncertainties.
From the breaking news you need to know to the hottest trends circling the Web, TheBlaze has it all. Whatever the motivation, it is undeniable that the prepper movement has gotten very large and that it continues to grow. To the unprepared, the very word “prepper” is likely to summon images of armed zealots hunkered down in bunkers awaiting the End of Days, but the reality, at least here in New York, is less dramatic. PREPPING IS THE BIG SHORT: a bet not just against a city, or a country or a government, but against the whole idea of sustainable civilization. The sad truth is that our world is becoming increasingly unstable in a whole bunch of different ways and we all need to learn how to prepare for the difficult years ahead. For example, a large percentage of Americans do not even have enough savings to get them through a single financial emergency.  According to one recent report, approximately 44 percent of all households in the United States are just one unexpected event away from financial disaster. Most American families do not have much food stored up either.  One recent survey discovered that 55 percent of all Americans have less than three days supply of food in their homes. Are the people trying to become more independent and self-sufficient crazy, or are the people who have complete and total faith that the system will take care of them no matter what happens actually the crazy ones? I don’t know about you, but I would prefer for myself and my family to at least have a chance to survive if society melts down for some reason. The Prophecy Of The Popes: The Next Pope (Petrus Romanus) Will Be The Final Pope According To A 900 Year Old Prophecy By St. It is truly amazing the percentage of people who do not even have 1-week food supply in their home.
I believe that many people nowadays feel in their gut that things aren’t quite right out there (in many regards), and are instinctively beginning to prep (whether they fully realize it or not). I have about a 6 months supply of food which is not survival ready in case the power goes out. Another problem no one mentions if that the grid goes down and society collapses fearing an armed intruder will be the last of your worries as my concern is that the gubmint will send their minions from door to door looking to see what supplies you have to redistribute.

Ten thousand years of human history and people have not had to store up food for winter for less than 200. I you build community and become your own supply chain you dont need to “bank on it”!
Richard: Back in the Summer of 2008, people were saying that Gerald Celente, Alex Jones and Peter Schiff were nuts for predicting that a major economic calamity was on the way. With a small farm, and a few animals you’re in better shape than most people, really.
Anyone that depends on the government should take a real close look at the American Indian and the way they have been cheated consistently by all government over the years. You have to understand that it wont be fed’s that you have to worry about in the realm of confiscation this will come from local counties, cities and neighbors. Blankfeins and our political elites wallow in the decadence and greed of the Forbidden City and Versailles.
The blood will flow like rivers in Europe, and it will flow like rivers in The Banana Republic of America.
Oh and even if the government came and took (it all) they would have to go find the rest of it.
The most fundamental, self evident, facts are that the current system is NOT sustainable so there will come a time when the economy and distribution system breaks down. Here are ten things that you can do now that will make you better prepared than 90% of the population. Now head over to the canned foods and pick-up 20 cans of canned fruits and 20 cans of canned vegetables. I have a copy of this article 10 things to do now, and the next 10 things to do in my purse right now, so when I shop I can refer to the list, and what I need to add! However, consult your physician first if your have kidney problems as the Tums might be too much for someone with impaired kidneys.
Sorry for the delay in responding – I broke my laptop and had to get a new hard drive installed. It is an antiacid, fire extinguisher, odor absorber, tooth paste, part of baking powder, etc. Better for you; if you have seasonal allergies using honey that is local will help with that.
I have a pretty good collection of food now, plus a means of doing laundry and treating wounds and am well stocked with canning jars and lids. When we visited our adult children we took your lists and took the kids shopping and had the joy of actually following the list item for item. Fever reducer ~ have more than one type, and have at least one 8-hour pain and fever reducer so you can sleep through the night. Mine started as a sinus infection drained in the night and I awoke deathly ill…too sick to get up and put on coffee. One evening I drank a gallon and a half of ice water, was not hungry… couldn’t get enough water, then was up all night letting it out! Those things with the shortest Long life- are the beans at about 2 years,(be sure to freeze them before LTS) close to the two year time, find a needy family or a food band and donate them. Okra, yellow squash, zucchini, all can be dehydrated easily, (wash, slice, dehydrate, store in dry dark,sealed jar) and eaten dehydrated or re-hydrated..the squash become very sweet, My family loves them, so I have to hide them! If things really get tough like no power for freezers, I’m told that if you put sand in some plastic tubs, wet it, you can bury in it anything that normally grows underground like potatoes, sweet ones too, carrots, radishes, beets and so on. And with our expert’s assessment, they will find out their chances of survival if their worst fears become a reality. Local Preppers are doctors, doormen, charter school executives, subway conductors, advertising writers and happily married couples from the Bronx.
For that reason, it chafes against one of polite society’s last remaining taboos — that the way we live is not simply plagued by certain problems, but is itself insolubly problematic. Unfortunately though, there will remain a huge dependent class who will be in dire straits, if and when the pillars of the system begin to collapse around them.
I’m now switching to food items that have a higher shelf life such as canned meats, peanut butter.
I try to give information openly, and hope that it is accepted in the manner it was intended, because I want to see people able to not just survive, but prosper, no matter the situation. And the inlaws will come around, either slowly as things get more publicly worse, or suddely when things go sideways. The country will be a lot safer than any town or city and the land, animals, a garden and a pond for water is a plus.
The Powers That Be will simply walk in and take anything you have stored for their own use. Those hoarded items might be worth more than their weight in gold, somewhere down the road.
They describe preppers as “those gloom and doom people who listen to Alex Jones and Gerald Celente.” Well, I listen to Alex Jones and Gerald Celente on a regular basis, and not only do I not think preppers are nuts—I think they are the sanest people around.
We went a month without power but we had natural gas to cook with and a generator to run the fan for the furnace and we did well for over a month during the ice storm 15 degrees out.

Imagine the stores without water or food, no medicine at the pharmacy, and no gas at the gas stations. Keep in mind that this is only a starting point and isn’t presented here as a completed list.
I’ve done crackers (leave in the sleeves), the medium boxes of instant rice, powdered milk, cereal, and a host of other things in the food saver bags. Be sure to put the water in a large pan and pour it down fast (do not try to pour the water out of a jug as it doesn’t come out fast enough. I am sure that most of you have already heard these things but since they are recent to me, I thought some other newer people might not have thought of them.
Since our children live hundreds of miles from us (to the west and to the east), It gave my wife and I a good feeling to stock their homes with some basics for survival, and also to get them to open their eyes and start paying attention to whats going on in the world. Some might choose to get those wally world vitamins, put them in the rotation, but replace them later with something else, as they assimilate info.
I am now on Benedryl and Mucinex DM and am able to function better (between naps!) and am able now to cough up the crud in my lungs and sinuses. So, if you want to stay in your better halfs good graces, best plan that the inlaws will be part of who you are prepping for.
There are many different reasons to prep, but two of the top reasons are The Greatest Depression and World War III. Add a bottle or two of raw honey (check the label to make sure it is the real thing) to your food storage and eat a little each day if you have seasonal allergies to help reduce the symptoms, also dab a little honey on cuts or scrapes, after washing well with soap and clean water, if you do not have antibacterial ointment. But I think if I had been on it when the sinus and chest congestion first started, I would have avoided the pneumonia and bronchitis I am now on antibiotics for. Learn about canning and preserving your own food and store some things that will last long term that you would easy in an emergency.
But, they are getting fewer, as more of my friends and family are begining to realise that the things I have been talking about all these years are coming to pass now.
It could be an executive order from any number of Presidents in our past that is still in effect years later.
Gerald Celente knows what he’s talking about when he says that we are looking at a financial calamity even worse than the Great Depression of the 1930s and a world war that will be even more destructive than the two previous world wars.
No Power, No fuel, no money, Banks down, powerlines down, trees down, it looked like a war zone.
No doubt some of you are intimidated by my repeated suggestions of storing and using whole grains and beans. White rice has a better storage life while brown rice has more nutritional benefits – your choice.
It has shaken me to my core as I kept saying to myself “what if the SHTF already and I came down with this? I haven’t tried this myself but if any of the pack has I would like to hear how it worked for you. There are 7 of us that are looking for something like that, good people, wanting to help others out…Yes, there are still good people left. Between the two, the future will be absolute hell in The Banana Republic of America (formerly Gli Stati Uniti) as well as in Europe. Being from Michigan we get up, get bundled up with the kids, get the chainsaw and start digging out, checking on neighbors. If it doesn’t come from the supermarket shelf it’s strange and unfamiliar and you want no part of it.
How else can you explain what has gone on for a good number of years without any punishment? We have nothing to fear but fear itself, but you know what, perfect love casts fear far into the outer darkness where it came from. 2008, and the fallout was every bit as bad as Gerald Celente, Alex Jones and Peter Schiff predicted it would be. So now, the Obamabots and their buddies on Wall Street are saying that happy days are here again and we’re out of the woods. Whoever loves the world, the love of The Father is not in him… (JESUS, the ONLY Christ). A mountain of evidence strongly indicates that Celente, Jones, Schiff and Chris Hedges are absolutely right when they say that the 1930s depression will look like a picnic at the Jersey Shore compared to what lies ahead.
We have cattle, dairy goats, sheep , hogs, chickens turkeys etc and an incubator always running. We keep six months of meds onhand for ourselves and are getting the elective surgeries now like historectomy, carpel tunnel, lasik. People could prepare grow and can , chop wood, build animals shelters, scavenge parts for vehicles, fuel and barter that kind of thing.
Once winter hit people would start getting sick so we probably wouldn’t be seeing much of one another.
