Survivalist-Prepper-Directory

If this is your first time here at Survivalist Prepper we want to say thanks for stopping by! Because there is so much that goes into preparedness, I thought it might be a good idea to set up a page to help everyone navigate the website.

We have hundreds of articles and podcast episodes here at Survivalist Prepper, so sometimes the good stuff can be hard to find. Hopefully this page will point you in the right direction, but if not feel free to get a hold of me here.

Some of you might not be in the beginning stages of prepping, and some of you may be further along, but regardless where you are on your preparedness journey, we have something here for everyone.

Below are some links to our favorite articles, as well as some resources to help you along the way.

Beginning Prepping 

Step 1

I would have to say the question I get the most often is “where do I start with prepping?” If that's you, you'll find a few good resources to help you along the way.  

Food Storage

Step 2

One of the biggest aspects of preparedness is food storage. Over time we have done quite a few articles and podcasts on what to store, how to store it, and keeping everything organized.

Survival Supplies

Step 3

While preparedness and survival skills will always be more important than the supplies, they sure make things much easier. We may need the supplies, but we don't need to waste money.
