Backyard Hunting--By Guest Contributor Sharon Cundiff   My husband and I enjoyed the festivities for opening day of the Cincinnati Reds, walking through the park that parallels the river with my sister-in-law and her niece.  The path wanders through and around trees, bushes and flowers, when suddenly a darting object caught my eye as it seeks refuge under the bushes.  I froze as the others continued walking ahead. A fat bird starts to dart out from under the bush, suddenly it spotted me, and...

Food Storage Mistakes 11: Paying Too Much for Food The number one reason why people pay too much for their food is because they impulse buy. That impulse may be triggered by some slick mail campaign from one of those companies that prides itself on instilling fear, or it may be caused by a lack of planning and discipline. However, paying too much for food also happens because of a lack of education. I look at my food supplies as my own personal Wall Street—except I have a success record for...

Food Storage Mistakes 1: The Food Storage Mentality:   If you care anything at all about being prepared for whatever life throws at you then the best thing you can do is completely eliminate the term “food storage” from your vocabulary.  We’re humans; not squirrels. Mentally we recognize that there’s something inherently wrong with the notion of spending money on something that we’re only go to store away in a dark corner of the attic only to forget it, while our investment decays. It’s not...

  “How much food storage do I need?” For the record, I absolutely loathe the term "food storage." It's no longer used in our household because I'm not a squirrel. As such I don't purchase items which serve no other purpose than to be stuffed away into a corner, only to promise unpleasant eating later.  If I don't eat it or know how to use it, it doesn't come into our home. And if it comes into our home, we use it and are very familiar with it. Now, have said that, the question posed above is a...

Holy cow! What a mess!!! Here’s a breakdown of the latest “drama” in the world of preparedness. I will forewarn you though; I have gone into great detail on the matter of whether or not the whole “Federal Agents, Raid, Demand Customer List, LDS Cannery, Mormon Food Storage Facility” is true. Not only did I do some major “gum shoeing” on this story but I also share some baseline facts here that really should be considered before you make an opinion on this matter. Hopefully you’ll find this...

There’s a whole lot of shaking going on throughout the U.S. lately with all of the earthquakes. (Oklahoma having the largest one at 5.9 just this past Saturday and a swarm of over 700 earthquakes in the Sierra County, CA since August). And I have to say, it feels like there’s LOTS going on with Preparedness Pro nowadays too. So I’ll get you all up to date, address a couple of tidbits that are relevant to your self-reliance efforts, and share with you a couple of new features with Preparedness...

Let’s talk about this whole “gourmet food storage” phrase that I keep seeing all over the place. I’m really having a hard time accepting that anyone is falling for the concept of “gourmet food storage.”  Doesn’t anyone else see the oxymoron in calling something "gourmet food storage?"  Has someone figured out a way to freeze-dry roasted asparagus with a rum pear spinach salad served alongside roasted pork in a pear butter barbeque sauce? What exactly is it that qualifies a freeze-dried or...

Last summer I had an encounter with one of the many freeze-dried food companies here in Utah. As you can imagine, there are lots and lots of them. Unfortunately the encounter did not go well. I found them to be dishonest, deceitful, and far too pushy. The deal is that they offer a "free sample" of their product--which frankly I think is a wise move that any freeze-dried or dehydrated manufacturer should do--and I think that they should provide samples for this purpose for any of their...

This week: More freeze-dried reviews, a new Cheese Waxing Kit, this months' giveaway item announced, and a valuable resource for FREE medical preparedness books. I don’t know about you but I felt like this weekend flew by. I really enjoyed doing the radio show this past Saturday which was on “Do It Yourself Dental Care.” You can download it so you don't have to miss out on all the information shared. This coming Saturday’s show will be on Hoarding—what it really is, it’s legal definition,...

Today I posted a question for our Facebook readers. “What is one aspect of preparedness that you feel comfortable with right now?”  Unfortunately, for the most part the answers were riddled with regrets and superimposed labels of failure. I was a bit saddened to read some of the responses because the “cure” is so incredibly easy and yet there were many who were beating  themselves up for not having "arrived" at the perfect state of preparedness. First of all, I suspect that for those people...
