I've been lurking on this board for at least a year, maybe longer, but finally decided to "join" so that I can (occasionally) chime in.

I live in Louisiana with my husband and kids. I got interested in prepping probably more than 10 years ago, mostly as a means to stock up on things when I had the money so that when things were tough I had enough to get us through. My ex was like dead weight, often quitting jobs and always spending money we didn't have. That said, my stocking up came in handy many, many times. At one time he was out of work for almost a year and if it wasn't for the food, diapers and toiletries I had stocked up, we wouldn't have made it on just my income alone (but we did and never took public assistance or asked family for money). We lived in a small, 2-bedroom trailer back then and so I found very creative ways to store stuff out of sight (for example... behind our sectional couch were buckets and buckets of food). When we divorced, I had to leave most of that behind and start over again.

Fast forward and I am re-married to a great man. Our home is modest in size but after raising kids in such a small trailer for so long, our home now feels like a mansion to me. I love to walk and take short hikes and I'm an avid gardener.

Glad to be here and thanks to everyone for such valuable input.

Welcome from south Louisiana. Sorry for your tough times. I have been a prepper for about 15 years and never stop trying to improve my plan. I hope your rough times are behind you and your family. Stay well.
