by Kellene Preparedness should have nothing to do with panic, dread, gloom, or doom As I shared in yesterday’s article, our preparedness articles should have nothing to do with panic, dread, gloom, or doom.  Even though some may consider the Book of Revelations a bit “dark” it’s actually not if you read it in its full context. While it does outline what is going to happen it’s also emphatic in reminding the reader that this is what’s going to happen, but you can still avoid the anguish and...

by Kellene A great deal of my articles attempt to be a conversation between myself and those who haven’t quite got on the preparedness bandwagon.  However, today I’d like to address those of you who have begun your preparedness efforts in earnest in hopes that I might add just a bit of redirection for you (If it’s necessary, of course). I hope that those of you who are actually going through the time, effort, and expense to be more independent are not doing so only to find yourself miserable...

  When you can get meat at a killer deal--can it!All Rights Reserved 2012 Preparedness Pro/Kellene I think if the real Suzy Homemaker had to can 100 pints of meat, or anything, she would be haggard and worn.  However, modern day technology and science makes the tasks of our ancestors a proverbial cake walk.  I often tell my students that I truly am the laziest preparedness person they will ever meet. If there is an easy way to do something, I find it. I work full-time nearly 6 days a week...

In Revelations chapter 13 verses 16 and 17 it says: “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” While there has been much speculation as to whether or not this prophecy of the last days has already come to pass with the use of UPC codes, I believe all prophecies will be fulfilled quite...

The truth that makes men free is for the most part the truth which men prefer not to hear. - Herbert Agar I know that the three financial preparedness articles I wrote last week weren’t exactly uplifting or exciting. That’s probably the reason why so few of you responded to them. :) I also am aware that the “Lights Out, Now What” class I taught on Saturday was a bit challenging to hear. Sitting through 90 minutes of what would cause a prolonged electrical outage and who the most vulnerable...

I’ve been winding down my Coupons Training Boot Camp classes for this year. This Saturday will mark the last one I teaching this year before I start charging folks to attend this particular class. As a result, the classes this week have been quite full. (Many, of course, waited until the last minute to register only to have to be told that we were full to capacity—bummer.) In spite of full classes, I’ve still been a bit disappointed in the turn out. Let me expound on why I feel that way. In...

The Ultimate Deception “Making something out of nothing” has often been the American Way to create wealth. We take a simple idea and turn it into a business, providing jobs, tax revenue and overall security. In this instance, creating something out of nothing is in line with the true act of Creation—organizing matter. But it’s important to know that there’s a constant enemy that attempts to portray makes something out of nothing. This particular act isn’t Creation though. It is nothing more...

The Federal Reserve: The Conspiracy Players Why is it important for you to really understand the Federal Reserve System in order to be better prepared financially? Well, it’s like I tell my firearm self-defense students—to be forewarned is to be prepared. I keep saying in my articles that the financial collapse is the disaster that is most likely to occur in our nation, and relatively soon. When I say that, it’s not with any intent to be a fearmonger. Rather it’s based upon my 15 years in the...

While I was teaching classes in Vegas this weekend, I had a gal come up to me and share some of her personal stories. One of which was about her daughter who lives in “tornado territory.” The woman shared with me that she was happy her daughter had finally started being mindful about being better prepared. She says that her daughter realized how often they hear tornado warnings and decided to “get on the stick.” The thought that came to my mind after hearing her story was how we ALL have...

How to feed your family for less! Today I’m going to share how a shift in the order and prioritization that we give to the ritual of feeding meals to our families can save us sanity, money, and time. Most of the households in the U.S. are highly reliant on the convenience of the grocery store when it comes to making their meals. This is actually a bit sad to me because it’s a habit we should all eliminate just as proactively as a bad health habit. In the Philippines, refrigeration is a luxury...
