Are “Preppers” Going Overboard?

Are “Preppers” Going Overboard?

Preppers are those people that are making sure they are prepared for as many situations as possible. Some even try to prepare for a literal Zombie Apocalypse! I personally am not taking things that far, but I do strongly believe in preparation. the reality is that we are living in a world that is continuing to get more and more confusing and illogical. It’s impossible to prepare for everything, but pretty foolish if you prepare for nothing. So, I do have a few items set aside in case things go a bit sideways. Hopefully this totally not comprehensive list will help you get a few things ready to either hunker down or vacate quickly depending on the situation.

  • A little extra paper goods such as toilet paper and paper towels (literally like one package for my family of 6)
  • Disinfectant wipes
  • Some emergency food
  • Canned goods like corn, spam, and chili
  • Rice (essential if you are Asian like I am)
  • Extra propane for my BBQ grill
  • Flashlights for everyone in the house
  • Some candles, matches, and lighters
  • Generator (I don’t actually have this yet, but I think it’s a good idea)
  • Storage bins to house much of this stuff
  • Store important documents like passports in a safe transportable container that can travel quickly if needed
  • Bear spray for the bad guys
  • Guns for the really bad guys
  • Multi-threat body armor for protection from coyotes or the really bad guys

If you have other suggestions of preparation items, let us know.
