I want you and your family to think about prepping as a long journey. Something that may take you many years.
So you need to make sure you have balanced preps.
One way to do that is to start at one of the 16 areas of prepping and go around in a spiral, so you have a set of basic preps.
You and your family have everything you need to survive an event.
To use this concept, you draw a circle and around the outside you write or print the 16 areas of prepping.
Next, on the inside of the circle, you put one thing you and your family are going to do to get ready for an event.
Once you have completed those items, you go on to the next spiral.
You will notice, the next set of purchases build on the prior purchases.
First, you buy a tarp, the most important item in constructing a shelter. The next time around, after doing or purchasing everything from the first spiral, you purchase rope, something that could be improvised.
This method just isn't about acquiring 'stuff.' It's also about learning how to do things; like making a fire from a firesteel, building a tarp shelter, splinting a broken arm, and ....; so you and your family can survive an event.
