17 Products for Preppers

17 Products for Preppers

Today I am going to talk about 17 products for preppers. My husband Brian is interested in this type of thing and I think it’s a really neat idea. But what is a prepper you ask? See translation from Google below: What is a prepper?

Some people think that preppers are crazy lunatics, and of course there are quite a few that fit that bill. While my husband is not what I would consider a lunatic (most of the time), I really like the fact that he just wants the family to be ready in the case of an emergency. So since Brian feels like the world might be coming to an end in the foreseeable future, he has put together what is called a “Bug Out Box”. Gah, I hate that word because It makes me think of a box full of bugs. Yuck!

But anyway a bug out box is a container that keeps emergency supplies handy that you can just grab and go in the event of an emergency. Or a nuclear melt-down. Or a Zombie apocalypse. Or the Rapture – because, let’s be honest, if such a thing were real, me and him aren’t going anywhere. And chances are, neither are YOU! In all seriousness, I am not that concerned about the above events happening, but it is good to have something handy in the case of emergencies. So because I love my husband, and I think it’s a neat idea, I am always on the lookout for items that might be helpful additions to our bug out box.

How We Cut the Cord…But Is It Worth It?

Is it Worth It to Ditch Cable and Cut the Cord? My family and I are HUGE couch potatoes. This means we love to watch TV.
