The idea that preppers and conveniences should go hand in hand is a strange thought That said, there is something to consider in all of this.
As a prepper, it’s easy to get into the mindset of the apocalypse. The odds are still very much in favor of you facing a regional natural disaster. It may be time for us to get away from the idea of the end and start prepping for things like hurricanes and other regional disasters.
When I started to look at the idea of prepper convenience from this angle it made sense. I realized that this was just another thing that you must account for. Games, pleasure, leisure, are the types of things that get you through those disasters and their recovery.
Let’s be real about caffeine, we all need our sip in the morning. DO you think the apocalypse will make that go away? In most cases, it will simply exacerbate that issue. Now is the time to start storing extra coffee to have on hand in case of a disaster.
Instant coffee may be the best answer to disaster coffee.
We love our power. We need electricity for a number of reasons. You see, having a generator or solar power is about the ability to feed that convenience. Things like entertainment are so important. Power and entertainment are things we do not want to live without.
Deodorant? Toothpaste? What are the things that you cannot live without that pertain to personal hygiene? There are all sorts of things that could fall into this list. None of it would be wrong. However, we are going to need to focus on things that we must have when preparing for prepper conveniences.
Nothing can replace a good, homemade soap that really does the job in a simple but quick bath or shower.
