New To Prepping? Start Here :)

Thank you for choosing to get your knowledge and information from, we strive to find the best prepping, homesteading, DIY and frugal articles from all around the web and have them all in one place, here.

When you are new to prepping you will be very confused, I will not lie, when I first started I wasted so much money on crap I didn’t need. I’m here to stop you from making my mistake.

First off, I would recommend getting a bug out bag. A bug out bag is a bag that has enough supplies and tools to last you at least 72 hrs. Included in the bag at the bare minimum should be water or a filtration/purifier, something to make fire, and last but not least, shelter. Check out my bug out bag checklist below :
