120 Powerful Pieces Of Advice For Preppers
Our world is becoming increasingly unstable, and millions of Americans are feverishly preparing for what they consider to be “the end of the world as we know it”. In fact, it is estimated that there are now approximately 3 million “preppers” in the United States. But for people that have never done much prepping before, getting started can be both confusing and intimidating. In fact, I get more questions about prepping than anything else. People are constantly asking me how they can prepare for the difficult times that are coming. Well, in this article I have compiled 120 powerful pieces of advice for preppers. No two situations are exactly the same, and almost every prepper approaches preparation differently, but there are some basic principles that apply to almost everyone. And without a doubt, a lot of people that are not preparing now are going to regret it in the years ahead. The global financial system is falling apart, the United States and Europe are absolutely drowning in debt, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are becoming more frequent, signs of social decay are everywhere and war could erupt in the Middle East at any time. Actually, it is absolutely amazing that there are so many people out there that still believe that “prepping” is not necessary.
When people ask me what they can do to prepare, there is usually one tip that I give above everything else. It is not very “sexy”, but it is absolutely foundational.
During the last recession, millions of people lost their jobs, and because a lot of them had no financial cushion, many of them also lost their homes.
For the next couple of years, my number one tip is to build up an emergency fund. If you are a prepper and you are living month to month, then you are in a very vulnerable position.
What is going to happen to all of your preparations if something goes wrong and you suddenly lose your home to foreclosure?
I recommend that everyone have an emergency fund that will be able to cover all bills and expenses for at least six months.
Yes, cash is continually losing value. But during any economic downturn it is absolutely essential that you be able to continue to pay your bills. Having a cash reserve is the smart thing to do.
So what else can people do to start prepping for the tough times that are on the horizon?
In a previous article, I explained that a good place to start is by focusing on the five basics….
If you have those five areas totally covered you will be in pretty good shape.
