Where does it all go? That is the thought when you see what a years worth of freeze dried food for the first time. Even if you only see it from a screen on your computer, it can still be pretty powerful. For many preppers they are struggling with space long before they even start buying food or resources.
Its time, money and space that crush most preppers. Those are the three biggest issues when it comes to hurtles for the average prepper. Still, we cannot allow these things to stop us from prepping for disaster.
What about the idea of prepping away from home?
Creating survival caches is not just about storing hidden preparedness items but it can also be about storing things that do not take up shelf space in your home. These caches can be as effective and creative as you would like them to be.
Another idea is to look to offsite storage. This is a two fold answer that can be very beneficial. Not only can storing preps away from home in a disaster be great for dealing with disasters, it can also be a big help come evacuation.
Having preps at a storage facility that is close by would be good for the bug in while having a storage facility further away would be great for evacuation or the bugout.
Like with all things, preparedness has to be outside of the box and it has to be customized to meet your needs. The idea of storage is no different. Its time to look beyond our limits in regard to what hinders us today.
Each one of us is an example of what FEMA director Brock Long called a “Culture of Preparedness” and while you may might like all aspects of government you have to agree that all Americans would benefit from that.
