  A New Jersey Prepper? Now you’ve heard it all! Who would have thunk? We’d be preppers… Certainly not us! What changed you asked? We’ll to be quite honest, life is always changing, but we were ok with   ignoring the changes taking place. (didn’t you ever hear of ROSE COLORED GLASSES? Ours were more of a purplish hue, ok deep purple, haha) Unemployment Natural Disasters Man-made disasters Economic collapse Just to name a few of the things we were “almost” completely ignoring, and I say almost,...

I guess I have always been interested in preparedness but usually I was regarded as kind of a nut. Well the past couple of years have really become a wake up for a lot of people including me. I had a large home in the country with all of the things  one would hope to have in a "shtf" scenario  but because of the economic downturn  we had to sell the house  and move into the suburbs sharing a double  house with my daughter and children. Next, my wife, who had lupus, became a casualty . It seems...

About the middle of last year (2011) I told my husband I needed more room for food and that he needed to "build me a pantry!" At first he looked at me a little oddly, then he said, "Well, I guess I could put some shelves up in that first bedroom." I was thrilled because we rarely have anyone sleep in that room and there was an empty wall. He sprang into action pretty quickly and now we have an entire wall that I have enjoyed filling up with canned goods and paper products and water, etc....

I moved to Utah about 8 years ago. I didn't know anything about being a prepper, had never even heard anything about it, to be totally honest. I heard from a few newly made LDS friends about how they always had a few months supply of food, water, and first aid always on hand and ready to go at a moments notice. I thought they were nuts. Then, I watched on the news with everyone as Hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana. I saw the devastation there and people fighting for survival. Running down to the...

Thirty six years ago our lives changed.  We didn’t have a big bank account but we had discovered wheat. Driving home from our “pick up point” with our two little boys, we felt blessed, protected and, yes, prepared. This was the beginning of our journey as participants in the prepping arena.  The peace that those sacks of golden wheat berries brought was immeasurable. We couldn’t protect our little family from everything, but we could protect them from something every parent fears. Hunger. Now,...

Let me start by saying that , I was born in a small town in Northern California 63 years ago, There were orchards and farms everywhere you looked in this pristine valley. Everyone knew their neighbors, not only next door folks, but everybody on the block. No one had to lock their doors  and no one needed to lock their cars. Crime was so low, you could go for years without reading about a killing or rape. Those crimes were a very rare occurrence in the 50s & 60s. This town consisted mostly...

I don't think it really matters what you are prepping for; it's the why that matters! We have always had extra food on hand for snow or emergencies but when we realized we would have a major decrease in our income we started to get prepared. Soon we realized that using sales to stock up saved us LOTS of money when combined with coupons. Then several years ago a light bulb went off as to the instability of our country and the socialistic tendencies of our government and being prepared became a...

♫ ♪I'm a prepper, he's a prepper, she's a prepper, wouldn't you like to be a prepper too?! ♫ ♪ I am enjoying learning about gardening, bread making, food storage, home and self-defense, sewing, canning, and many more essential skills on my prepping journey to self-reliance. It is so satisfying and boosting to the self-esteem to learn and implement new skills and then pass them along to others! There are so many simple and useful things that you will be able to learn about and put into practice...

When I was a very small child neighbors would often call to ask if they could borrow me to help with their canning.  From the time I was old enough to understand how to take the stems off of cherries I helped can.  I helped my mom, my grandparents, and my neighbors. I loved learning how to garden from anyone who would show me what to do. As I got a little older I discovered the magic of books.  I read literally every book in the school library and moved on to the public library.  Everything I...
