When it comes to preparedness, there is no end to the prepping supplies we “must have”. Some of these “must have” prepping supplies are actually “I really want” supplies.

We preppers tend to become gear heads fairly early into our preparedness journey. This is because it’s easier than ever to find these different survival supplies. The truth is, while all these trinkets and gadgets are great, not all are necessary for survival.

While no one knows what disaster might befall us, and which of these survival supplies might become the most useful, there are some core prepping supplies that will most likely become the most important.

Today, Lisa and I went into more detail about an article I wrote last week about what the most important prepping supplies are. We ended up having to split this into 2 parts because we wanted to cover each topic in detail.

As I said in the podcast, part 2 will be out next week, but you can read the article I linked to above to read the full list.

Feedback From the Preparedness Community

I didn’t want to just give you my ideas about what the most important prepping supplies are, so I asked the preparedness community for their feedback.

I received an overwhelming number of responses, and it really helped my take the pulse of preppers. Thanks again to everyone who responded!

In This Weeks Show

This week we covered 6 of the 14 most important prepping supplies. The article I wrote had 12 survival supplies, but after reading the comments and talking to Lisa, that list became 14.

We also covered some of the skills that go along with these supplies. Some of these skills are absolutely necessary, and some will make those supplies more valuable.

Fixed Blade Knife

Water Filters and Purification

Bug Out Bags or Go Bags

Fire Starting Supplies

First Aid Supplies and Skills

Self Defense Supplies

Again, make sure and read the full article and get a sneak peak into what part 2 is going to cover. While I tried to go into as much detail as possible in the article, Lisa and I dig a little deeper into each of these important prepping supplies.


Survival and being prepared should not only be a passion, it should be a lifestyle. The definition of a prepper is "An individual or group that prepares or makes preparations in advance of, or prior to, any change in normal circumstances, without substantial resources from outside sources" Like the Government, police etc. I don't believe that the end of the world will be the "end of the world" I believe it will be the end of the world as we know it now.

      As far as water filters, Survivor have great filters. Sawyer has the Select series S2 and S3 remove pesticides, chemicals and S3 heavy metals. Seychelle has bottles as well as a pump that remove chemicals and they have radiation removal ones Instead of tablets I use Steripens. One works on AA other on Cr123. In

      Surplus military packs are good generally.

      Situational Awareness is key. Use pepper spray get home defense version or bear spray. Tasers also. Tried and tested. Wasp spray ineffective and household chemicals possible ineffective and could be fatal so if lethal force not justified and you use.
