Hat Tip: SurvivalBlog
Well, perhaps the report takes things to the extreme for a bit of implied mockery. And you don’t need $10-grand to get ahead of the curve.
Put in more simple terms, think about what you may need two weeks, a month, six months or a year in advance. It’s okay, probably advisable, to start small. Work your way up as your comfort level grows.
Ask yourself: What can I buy today that I may need tomorrow, but that might not be available to buy then?
You don’t have to be a “prepper” to think ahead. Many of our grandparents often stored enough food and other necessities to last a season. And their norm has been the norm for most of civilized history.
It’s only been in the past generation or two that most people have come to expect instant availability of necessities. Few people today take the time to ponder how a slight “burp” in the supply chain, for many different reasons, can disrupt that new expectation.
Many in Atlanta were shocked last winter when a snow storm emptied grocery shelves, and trucks couldn’t get out to make resupply.
Having “just a little extra” at home can help avoid panic, and help you and your family weather all kinds of storms.
