Something that has helped me feel less overwhelmed is this: I am using an Excel spreadsheet for a food storage planner. I first got enough food/water/supplies for two weeks. Then I added enough for another two weeks. I am now up to a three month supply of everything using the method of stocking up for two weeks at a time. There is also the reward of a feeling of accomplishment instead of panic as I complete preparation for two more weeks.
