When SHTF I’ll Come To Your House And Take Your Stuff!

You think you will, but in reality, you’ll just end up getting shot.  That’s the whole point of being prepared, you will have to expect desperate people attempting to break in and steal what resources you have to survive.


It’s not your fault they are unprepared for what has happened, so if they are going to take it upon their self to try to steal what’s yours, then they deserve what’s coming. Take a look at our security page under prepping.

Excuses people make on why they can’t be prepared.

People always come up with excuses for not being prepared, it’s either “I can’t afford it.”, “I don’t have the room.”, “I don’t have the time.” or “It will never happen in my life.” But when it does happen, how screwed are you gonna be since you didn’t even make an attempt to start prepping.

But the thing is you can, you’re just refusing not too and just coming up with excuses.

Why should I be prepared?

There are many reasons you should be prepared, it could range from something as small as a family member getting hurt, all the way up to losing a job or even homeless, even a catastrophic scenario if worse comes to worst! Being prepared doesn’t make you crazy or paranoid, it just means you’re prepared for the worst to come, which is a smart thing to do, many people think local authorities will come to your rescue when a catastrophic event happens but sadly that won’t happen, they have their own families to worry about.

How do I start prepping?

Here are some basic examples you can do to start emergency prepping.  (We’re not going to write you a book here.)

Save a little money from your paycheck!
You don’t need to save up TONS of money to start prepping, you can save a dollar a day, five, ten, or even twenty dollars a week from your paycheck and use it to start prepping!

Do your research!
Look around online, read books, or ask anyone at SHTF Preppers for help of course.

Start Stockpiling!
​Stockpile shelf stable foods and water, canned goods, ammo, medical and supplies for hygiene, etc. (Scroll down on the home page for a list of recommend stuff to stockpile ).

​​Get your fitness gain on!
The better shape you’re in, the better chance you have surviving a SHTF situation………If you have a bug out bag, go for a walk or jog with it on so you get use to the weight and going long distances with it.

Just like we said at the top, Research!  Buy books, start a small survival/prepping library.  Because when the lights go out,  the internet won’t be here to answer your questions.
