    At the onset of empty shelves I stocked up on Vit C rich food. I had about $6 of oranges go moldy from about 25 pounds of oranges I bought. My grapefruit all held up OK. I had about 20 pounds. Still have 3 of them. I bought some bleached flour out of desperation when you could not find any...

    A small market/grocery store in my area is going out of business after almost 30 years. It is sad to see it go, but they were having a all-must-go sale this week. I found some great prep items on the cheap. First thing to catch my eye was a commercial grade food shelf. This thing is tough...

    After reading yet another article on how to fail as a prepper and feeling more than a little depressed over the whole thing, I was lucky enough to run across an article on Organic Prepper that I felt was highly motivational, or it may just be a great wake-up call. So here it is, for those of...

  13. Military Weapons Forum
    i have been realizing that shooting the AK74 is quite bit cheaper than shooting the AR 15. Coming from someone who is on a budget who can't afford paying a lot of money stock piling for ammo, I have been seeing some of my friends start to switch platforms on their bug out weapon of choice from...

    I have been watching Doomsday preppers and most of them all have different reasons for why for what they call the world is coming to an end.

    I wonder how many people add clothes to their prep list? I know that some people can sew, but you need raw material for that. I personally would be wearing some funny looking clothes if I had to sew my own.;) I have been adding clothing to the preps, as well as the fact I already had a lot of...
