You know, lots of preppers try to cover the bases of convenience. Things like toilet paper tend to be high on the pyramid of prepper needs. Don’t forget toilet paper is a pretty new invention. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great invention.
Still, you cannot eat, drink, or defend with toilet paper. You might be able to treat some kind of injury with it but I don’t know.
It’s easy to get our priorities skewed as preppers. Let’s talk about some big, big ideas and priorities when it comes to prepping. Before you start worrying about toilet paper you need to think about other things.
Where you Live
Are you reading this on your laptop in an apartment right now? Before you concern yourself with toilet paper or any preps for that matter, you might need to focus on changing your living situation.
An apartment in a densely populated area is about as frightening as it gets! Your top priority should be getting out of there to somewhere that has fewer people.
What you Do
Do you work in a high rise in a big city? Will your job be automated out of existence? These are important things to consider. You might be on the lookout for a job that allows you to work from home or one that is a trade skill that will carry over to SHTF.
What is Next
Before you go stocking the shelves with hatchets and Ferro rods, you might want to consider your overall plan of action as a prepper. Where do you want to be in the next 2 years or 5 years? What steps are you taking to get there?
The highest priorities are often the biggest and the most expensive. I know that is hard for some people but prepping is about sacrifice.
Bonus: How To Grow a Backyard Supermarket
Having a backyard supermarket will allow you to grow pork and beef, chicken, organic eggs, non-GMO fresh fruits and veggies, including all the essential components you need to make your food staples, desserts, and even drinks.
If you are willing to put in a little elbow grease, this isn't too good to be true. The good news is that some of this can be automated.
Our great-grandfathers and great-grandmothers did this every single day. It's called "homesteading", and it can help you save money on food, furniture, tools, clothes, and much more!
This is as self-sufficient as it gets. Watch this eye-opening video to learn more:
Homesteading will take you back to the roots of your ancestors. It's not only a healthy, stress-reducing pursuit, it's a lifestyle.
