Whether you have been prepping for some time or decided you should be better prepared after watching American Blackout the biggest question on everyone’s mind is always what do I buy and how much? With that in mind I chose to shop at the following stores since they were all in close proximity to each other.
I don’t shop this store that much since their prices seem a bit high but I do like to go look and check things out. As I continued to walk around looking at stuff I remembered I had a gift card in my wallet.
When buying food at stores other than grocery stores always check the expiration dates, you don’t want to buy stuff that has been sitting around forever. So put together a list of what you need, the stores to shop at and a budget and then stick to it.

While I haven’t watched all of the “Prepper” reality shows that are all over cable TV nowadays, I’ll admit, I’ve watched my share. I emphasis that last part, because as one thing you see 90% of the time when you watch a prepper show is how way out of shape most of these people are? In my book Corps Strength I lay out a proven and effective PT program that will get (and keep) you in great physical shape.
The true prep for apocalypse is stockpile tons of food supplies and gasoline in the bunker with radio. If you gonna have to use your muscle for stay alive, that’s more like survival situation, whether urban or wilderness.
But anyway, I agree that well-prepared body and mind is the best and most needed tool for any SHTF scenarios.
Gunny always tells it like it is, much respect Brother, I’ve been preaching the same thing for years. Not sure what would be worse….flesh eating zombies or fat people not getting their government assistance checks and then going on a rampage for their YooHoo fix?
Moderation is key to enjoying snacks, I can easily have one diet soda(well the 10’s) a day, and a twinkie and easily stay in shape. When people come to our classes they are often annoyed by the big percentage of physical and self defense exercises in our Force-on-Force classes.
When I was talking with some of the neighbors about helping each other out during a disaster, fitness level was one of the criteria I used for discriminating. The only thing I think was left out of this article: the mental benefit of a strong body and the active pursuit of overall fitness.

For any new prepper it can be very overwhelming and if you are on a tight budget it makes buying decisions even more difficult. I like Fleet Farm because they carry items other stores don’t have especially hunting and fishing equipment. This trip I wasn’t as interested in buying large quantities because it would of blown my budget pretty quick. I know you can buy mac and cheese for .39? a box but with Annie’s you don’t get all the artificial flavors and colors of other products.
Most all items are their own brand and package sizes are generally smaller but the prices reflect that. To be fair, not everyone, but the vast majority seem they’re more prepared to assault the buffet at Golden Corral, than deal with any real threat. Our military forces, contractors and internationals overseas, and people trying to deal with some serious natural disasters here in the states.
Focus on getting away from the high population area, then it’s time for water, food, sandbags, and intel. If one was to stand outside of any larger store every 8 out of 10 people walking in or out is grossly overweight. I workout everyday, basic calisthenic exercises, some olympic weight lifting, running and also martial arts. The mind set & behavior described can just as well be applied to much of the day-to-day in the Civilian World. I think the Zombie Outbreak here will go harder than elsewhere: All those empty calories are going to make zombies more grumpy and disagreeable than usual. It sharpens the mind, lengthens synaptic endurance and puts control back in the cockpit rather than in the hands of circumstance. Preparing for natural disaster, war or whatever apocalypse is pretty much moot, if you’re grossly overweight. You have read and agree to the Global Shipping Program terms and conditions - opens in a new window or tab. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. After paying the bills I still had some cash left over so I thought I would put it towards my preps.
This time of year hunting ammo is in pretty good supply but everything else is still missing from the shelves. Too often it is easy to fill up your cart and then get hit with sticker shock at the register. As soon as I walked in the door they had a display of products so I had to buy them because the prices were decent.

Nothing personal, but It just seems silly to me that people would spend untold amounts of time and money on buying weapons, ammo, gold, storing food and water, etc, but don’t take a minute to maintain themselves in decent physical condition. Harsh conditions and high stress combined with very little sleep will beat your ass down like a five cell mag light. Actually it’s the perfect plan for someone of the prepper mindset, which is to be prepared.
If you had been in better shape, you could have made it to the control a bit less exhausted.
Being seriously obese is so dangerous, that the main issue for survival is to get into shape before you die of a heart stroke or such. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. So it's a good time for CostHelper readers to get ready for the coming zombie apocalypse.Even the Center for Disease Control is on board, providing a list of helpful tips for all types of emergencies including the undead. Even if your budget is only $50 or maybe you have an extra $500 the following should give you some ideas.

I was looking at some cheap candles to melt down for the wax to make fire starters but decided to pass at this time. Also I prefer to buy smaller quantities for reasons I outlined in my previous articles How Much Survival Food Do You Need and Prepping and Survival Food Storage Tips for Singles, Couples and Small Families. I think I picked up some good deals, filled in some gaps and added to my overall prepping goals. I find it interesting (and funny) to see what some people are up to, but in any case as a Marine I do believe in being prepared.
IMO no amount of weapons or dried food will help you deal with that stress better than just being in good physical condition. Cause we all know that one diet soda can erase the 1800 calories they just stuffed into their fat chipmunk cheeks. Ok, maybe that is out of the norm for the shoppers you’re talking about, but still, they are damn tasty.
My goal was not to buy absolutely everything I need because the world is ending tomorrow but to add to preps I already had and fill in a few gaps of items I was missing. In the back of my mind I had specific things I was looking for at each store but was open to whatever I found. As you can see you can actually get a lot by shopping around and looking for items on sale.
No, I don’t mean prepping for a Zombie Apocalypse, Alien invasion or an Illuminati takeover. Underground HouseBuilt out of a fear of an inevitable nuclear war in the 1970s, this 6,000-square-foot home is built underground -- including the trees and the pool. It was probably because I already have it or that will be on another shopping trip or it doesn’t fit my needs. Being out of shape in one of these situations can be a real problem, not just for you, but for those around you. Luxury Survival CondosBuilt in reclaimed missile silos, these condos are 900-1,820 square-feet each and contain living space, bedrooms, bathrooms, and luxury amenities for families. It would be very easy to go to any of these stores and drop several hundred dollars; the real challenge is sticking to your budget and not get carried away. Now I am sure it is a high quality product but a purchase like that could blow anyone’s budget in a hurry and not leave anything left over for other prepping supplies.
I don't mean Costco bulk, I mean massive quantities that last decades, not merely months or years. The other thing I was doing as I was wandering the aisles was making a mental note of ideas for future purchases and also comparing prices. If you have a good idea on what things cost it would allow you to know when you are really getting the best price. One gallon of water per day is roughly what a single person needs in a post-apocalyptic survival scenario.
While the military grade vehicles do offer a secure ride, be ready to spend a bundle on gas. The kit includes laser sights for attaching to weaponry, night vision optics and battle gear. Big GunsWhile no research studies have been done yet as to which weaponry prevails in actual zombie attacks, there is plenty to glean from Hollywood. In "The Walking Dead," Rick Grimes carries a trusty Colt Python .357 Magnum ($2,000-$5,000). Gerber, a maker of survival gear, sells a kit filled with an assortment of machetes and knives. Titanium CrowbarThis might be the most-useful weapon you can find -- even over the big guns -- and a common sight in the "Walking Dead." For one, it never needs to be reloaded.
