How to Be a Prepper
List of skills on homesteading, prepping and survival

Prepping is the practice of making active emergency
preparations, and this survival strategy is becoming more
mainstream.  

  • Prepper's today don't all have gas masks, (though many
    preppers do).



Preppers are an ingenious bunch who know how to make do (or
do without). Prepper's construct, build, fabricate, manufacture,
erect, fix, pack, track, assemble a multitude of things! Preppers
know how to cook from scratch. Preppers know how to survive in
the woods. Being a prepper is about having the skills and
knowledge in addition to the stockpiles. Here's how to be a
prepper...

How to Be a Prepper
If you're wondering how to be a prepper, then you've come to a
happy place! Prepping is all about preparing for your future.
Have fun! Learn some new skills and visit this site often.  Get
started with 100 ways to start prepping now.

Keep quiet. The first thing a new prepper learns is to be quiet.
While prepping is becoming mainstream, it's still not accepted
by all.

Did unwanted commentary you'll receive from friends and family
by simply keeping your prepping secretive. Rest assured, you're
not a crazy Prepper! People of the past were always Preppers.
They stockpiled food and supplies for lean times and for Winter.
The way of our past has simply been forgotten by the
convenience of our current economy.

Fill your car with gas.
Another easy thing a new prepper can do is to keep vehicles
filled with gasoline. Your goal is to have a tank that's never
more than half empty.

Keeping vehicles prepared also means having regular
maintenance, and checking the oil and water levels. You'll be
your own mechanic in the event of a major catastrophe. (

how to save money on gas.)

  1. Create a food journal. Get a pad of paper and write down
    exactly what your family eats for an entire week.
  2. Pack a bugout bag.
  3. Assemble a personal 72-hour kit.
  4. Get together a car kit of essentials.
  5. Build an Altoids tin survival kit.
  6. Pack a get home bag. A get home bag fills a purpose
    unlike the bugout bag: it's only goal is to get you home,
    whereas a bugout bag may be the last man-made item you
    will ever own.
  7. Track the foods you eat for a week. Then move on
    towards a whole month. You'll be surprised to find you can
    stockpile many of your favorite non-perishable foods for the
    long term and take advantage of sales. What's good food
    for prepping? We've assembled a list of 37 foods to
    stockpile.
  8. Learn to cook beans and rice.
  9. Store your gasoline and other fuels safely.
  10. Know how to use a gas main tool. Shutting off the gas is
    particularly important after an earthquake.
  11. Teach children about prepping.
  12. Have fun with paracord.
  13. Fabricate a simple shelter.
  14. Manufacture your own ammunition.
  15. Fix something with duct tape. Seriously, duct tape is a
    prepper essential, but if you want to go beyond duct tape,
    consider FiberFix, pictured right.
  16. Get a crowbar. A crowbar is a useful prepping tool for
    urban environments. In uncertain times the day may come
    when you need to pry open doors to get at survival goods.
    Almost nothing is unethical when you're in survival mode.
    Besides, you never know when you might need to improvise
    a weapon and a crowbar is a multi-use urban survival tool
    in that regard.
  17. Make a temporary toilet. To make your own temporary
    sanitation solution, you'll need a 5-gallon bucket and a
    toilet seat, pictured left. Be sure to add some sanitation
    bags. Double Doodie is a good brand.
  18. Turn off the water. See what it's like to live without it.
  19. Turn off the electricity. Turn off the grid! See what you
    learn from turning off the electricity for an evening dinner.
    You may be surprised how much fun it is to tell ghost
    stories by candelight. Don't cheat: you'll need to make your
    dinner without electricity; and use your cellphone only if
    you have a way to recharge it using solar energy.
  20. Self defense. Take defense training and practice! As Bruce
    Lee was famous for saying: "I fear not the man who has
    practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has
    practiced one kick 10,000 times."
  21. Get trippy! Know how to use snares and trip wires for
    defense.
  22. Weapon mastery. Know how to use your weapons. Clean
    them regularly and practice using them.
  23. Whittling wood and wood working.
  24. Take a First-aid / CPR class. The American Red Cross is a
    good place to start and learn about the correct medical
    equipment.
  25. Start collecting bottled water. Head to the dollar store or
    the now for some cheap finds in bottled water. Take heed
    of these bottled water warnings. Later you can get fancy
    with water storage tanks and water filtration methods.
  26. Take an inventory of your food: Reorganize: Empty open
    packages, such as pastas, and store in airtight containers.
    Look for cans swollen, dented, corroded or outdated and
    toss them. Use a Sharpie to label foods with expiration
    year. Reorder supplies (older foods in the front, new foods
    in the back, ). Move food into dark, dry, cool areas. (The
    garage is not a good place for your food as the
    temperature fluctuates.)
  27. Get some meals together: Assemble ten shelf-stable
    lunches for your family or group. Then work towards ten
    shelf-stable dinners.
  28. Learn to make fire in more than one way. A magnifying
    glass is a good option for starting a fire if you don't a have
    a lighter. A good magnifying glass is around $4 and
    available with free shipping. Other good firestarters
    include a magnesium stick, fire ribbon or waterproof
    matches. Learn to build a fire.
  29. Do today's laundry (just get caught up). Get all your
    laundry caught up. Yes, it's an everyday task, but today is
    the day to air your dirty laundry! Suppose the power grid
    goes down, and you're laundry is stacked to the hilt. You'd
    be wasting precious water and time laundering by hand
    tomorrow. Discover off the grid laundry techniques and
    never wait until tomorrow what you can do today.
  30. Do tomorrow's laundry (off-grid method). Get an
    inexpensive washboard and do your laundry the old
    fashioned way. The Maid-Rite washboard,  pictured right,
    will do the trick. Or try the green Laundry POD, which has
    an easy to use spinning, washing and draining system,
    clean clothes by hand in less than 10 minutes. While you're
    at it, get some clothes pins, hangers and a wash line!
  31. Do your dishes by hand. This exercise will make you
    happy and grateful for the convenience of a dishwasher.
    Know that the dishes you pile into the dishwasher today
    could be your last. Get yourself some basins.
  32. Check your supply of paper plates, napkins, and
    disposable utensils. You won't want waste precious water
    washing everyday utensils when the grid goes down.
  33. Make doctor's or dentist appointments. Get a checkup
    while you can (before you have to be your own doctor or
    dentist).  Never delay surgeries. Get that new prescription.
    Talk with your doctor and stock your cabinets with extra
    supplies. Smile knowing you have made preparations
    when there is no dentist.
  34. Hold a yard sale or garage sale. Create more space for
    you to stock your preps, such as hunting equipment,
    camping equipment, or food storage. Convert wasteful junk
    into supplies and food.
  35. Go to a garage sale. Seek and ye shall find emergency
    preparedness supplies at garage sales. Look for used
    camping equipment, survival books, inexpensive bicycles
    and shelving, or hand-crank tools.
  36. Get a grinder! Grind your own wheat and save money
    baking your own breads. A Wondermill Grinder, pictured at
    the top of the page works with wet/oily grains; legumes,
    coffee, garbanzos, seeds, nuts, also!
  37. Check your bicycle (and have repair tools on hand)! Your
    bike might be the only mode of transportation in an
    extreme power grid failure. If you don't have a bicycle head
    to Amazon (we recommend getting an adult tricycle to load
    your essentials). Of course you can always procure a used
    bicycle at a garage sale. Extras would be great for
    bartering or backup! Ensure you have a bike lock for every
    bike and at one bicycle repair kit on hand. The bike tool kit
    left is just about everything you need. Add patches, extra
    tubes, chains, oil and a bike pump and you're just about
    good to go. You'll need some expertise in repairing bikes.
    Get bike tutoring help at bicyletutor.com where you'll
    learn how to tune up your bike, how to straighten a bent
    disc brake rotor and more.
  38. Count how many cans you have that contain liquids. Your
    food shelf space should contain 10 percent liquid foods.
    Any liquid foods you have will help you conserve your water
    supply. For example, you can make rice with chicken, beef
    or vegetable stock or and as mentioned above, coconut
    milk. Pineapple juice has an especially long shelf life (4-5
    years). Other liquid cans include; vegetable juice (such as
    V-8 Juice) or tomato juice; and evaporated milk.
  39. Fill a pitcher of water for the refrigerator. Everyday,
    stock your refrigerator with ordinary tap water (even if you
    only drink filtered water). Filter it if you like, but fill a
    pitcher or jug. This will be your first source of water in the
    event of a disaster. Make the habit of putting water in your
    coffee maker in the evening, so it's ready in the morning
    and you'll have that much extra water in your supply.
  40. Stay thirsty my friend. Enjoy a glass of water, right now.
    Most of us just don't drink enough water. If a survival
    scenario commences, most people will be operating at a
    deficit. You can tip the odds in your favor by quenching
    your thirst. Walk away from the computer and do it now,
    then go on to read the rest of this survival checklist. The
    Big Berkey Water filter, right is a prepper favorite for clean
    drinking water.  A water check is on the Prepper TO DO
    list!
  41. Rotate your canned goods. Prepare a meal from eligible
    stock or donate items that haven't yet met their expiration
    date to a food bank. Look for dented, rusted, or cans that
    have bulged and throw them out. While you're at it, check
    out the Food Rotation System: can food storage rack at the
    top of the page. It will fit in just about any pantry.
  42. Assemble something. Take something out of the box and
    test it. Assemble the camp cooking stove or try out the
    new solar oven. You may find it's missing or broken part or
    it doesn't work as well as you thought. It's better to find
    out sooner than later.
  43. Clean a closet or drawer. There's a closet you've been
    meaning to re-arrange, isn't there? You don't need to take
    on the chore all at once. Take it one drawer, box, shelf or
    compartment at a time.
  44. Buy an extra bucket opener. You already stock extra can
    openers, right? If you've got buckets of stored foods,
    purchase some extra bucket openers and Gamma Lids. You
    might not be able to open them otherwise!
  45. Check for leaks on your water supplies. Perhaps you've
    stacked water too high or a notice that a bottle has sprung
    a leak. Monitoring could save the day! If you neglect water
    supplies, the leakage could damage floors and possibly ruin
    your food sources and other supplies, like toilet paper and
    paper towels.
  46. Learn a new skill. Preppers always have new skills to
    master. Take up a new hobby today whether it's coin
    collecting. What the heck is Charcuterie? Find out how this
    skill could help you as a Prepper.
  47. Get into Junk silver! The price for junk silver on
    11/16/2014 was $16.35. Junk silver is the value of the
    silver, not the rarity or numismatic value of the coins. If
    you buy and sell silver coins, you should know where to
    consult the "junk silver" value. Check out coinflation now
    for junk silver prices.
  48. Get into Junk Copper (wheat back pennies 1909-1958
    and Lincoln pennies 1959-1982). Did you know it takes
    just 154 wheat-back pennies (junk-copper pennies dated
    from 1909-1958) and Lincoln pennies dated to 1958 to
    have a full pound of fine copper? Start saving the copper
    pennies in your loose change. It's worth about twice the
    face value! Check out Coinflation for the junk copper prices.
  49. Start chopping some firewood! You know you'll need
    seasoned firewood, right? Your wood must be a half year
    old to burn it. Get chopping, my friend! This will be the
    most difficult part of an off-grid life: keeping firewood
    stocked.
  50. Build a fire. Hawke's Special Forces Survival Handbook has
    an excellent 30 page guide in chapter four on how to build
    a fire. In it he discusses the importance of lighters, goes
    over the fire hierarchy and shows you how to produce a
    spark and build a fire. Read 15+ Firestarter Methods.

  51. Stock up on car maintenance items. You'll always need
    oil changes, coolants, spark plugs, and air filters. While
    you're at it, check your spare tires. Stock a fan belt and a
    timing belt.  If you can, put a car battery in your Faraday
    cage! Be sure to stock survival car essentials.
  52. Take a hike! Preppers and their families are in their best
    possible physical condition because they walk, run and
    excercise everyday. Hiking is a skill that may be required in
    the event the unthinkable happens. Do something active
    with your family to keep in peak shape!
  53. Say Howdy to "Double Doodie": Poor hygiene in the
    aftermath of a catastrophe could be one of the biggest
    killers for mankind. Because of the risk of infections of poor
    sanitation, it's important to get your portable toilet set up
    and go "Double Doodie." Plan your sanitation today,
    before the stuff hits the fan tomorrow.
  54. Get to know your neighbors. Perhaps there's a medical
    doctor, nurse or an EMT down the street. Ask him or her to
    review your first aid kit. Dentists and hygienists could
    provide some dental assistance. Just remember the first
    rule of Prep Club: don't talk about Prep Club. Be a good
    neighbor. If you are public about your prepping plans,
    which we don't advise, then you must integrate neighbors
    in your planning efforts. Help them develop their own
    means of survival! An acceptable way to approach
    neighbors is to set up or participate in a neighborhood
    watch. This is equivalent to pioneers banding together and
    "circling their wagons" to defend themselves on the prairies.
  55. Read a Prepper's books and articles. Pick up a book on
    prepping. Visit regularly for new articles. Surf Bing, Google
    or Yahoo for Prepper blogs. Head to YouTube for Prepper
    videos. There are always new ideas to consider to enhance
    your Prepper lifestyle!
  56. Try out a new Prepper recipe. Make dinner tonight with
    ingredients from your Prepper's pantry and stored Water
    you've never tried that sun oven? Now is the time to try a
    recipe and to calculate how long it will take to get that
    meal prepared from foods in your pantry. You may discover
    that you need some new recipes or to expand the
    ingredients of your everyday pantry. Here's our preppers
    list of foods to stock.
  57. Spend ten bucks. You can prep on any budget and the
    dollar stores are a great place to start. Read 99 ways to
    spend a buck at the dollar stores. Or shop online: we'll
    help you with prepping on the cheap for $10 or less.
  58. Head to the drug store to get some canned meat. You'll
    find canned meat inexpensive at the local pharmacy. DAK
    canned hams are sometimes two for $5. That's one pound
    of excellent Danish ham for $2.50!
  59. Consider adding a jar of Vaseline to your supplies list.
    Petroleum jelly is an excellent fire-starter when paired with
    cotton balls soaked in the stuff. Paired with gauze it's also
    an effective ointment for scrapes, burns, and cuts for your
    first aid kit. Additionally, it can soothe chapped lips, and
    prevent chafing between legs minimizing friction between
    skin and clothing for walking or running long distances.
  60. Learn sign language. You may find yourself in a situation
    where communicating with family members covertly will be
    the best course of action. Practice a few essential signs
    (made up or real ones) to help you communicate should
    marauders threaten your family and supplies. Learn words
    in American Sign Language at signingsavy.com
  61. Clear the condiment shelf of your refrigerator! Use the
    added shelf space for bottled drinks. You can never have
    enough water stored and this is a way to squeeze in
    some extra space. While canned foods can last well beyond
    the use by date, condiments in open bottles can be
    dangerous to your health. There's no need to store a salad
    dressing from 2009 or a hot sauce that's too zippy for your
    families tastes. Get rid of it.
  62. Listen to your inner voice. Take a moment to pause and
    reflect. Everyone was born with an inner voice that
    commands right from wrong. You don't need any person or
    agency telling you what to do. Listen only to the inner
    voice that guides you to do the right thing, in the right
    way. This is a universal command that transcends all.
    You've known it all the time.
  63. Test your Prepper knowledge. See if you know the
    glossary of Prepper terms in our Prepper's Dictionary. It
    means you're about halfway to becoming a Happy Prepper.
    "Ghee" there are a lot of words defined there.
  64. Talk with Great Grandma or Grandpa. Perhaps someone
    you know survived the Great Depression. Lend an ear to an
    elderly person to find out how they stocked their pantry in
    the old days or how they survived hard times.
  65. Shop a farmer's market. Supporting locals may not at
    first seem like a Prepper thing to do, but when you shop a
    farmer's market, you are supporting local families and you
    may find the perfect ingredients for your home canning or
    dehydrating projects. Most farmer's markets are organic:
    that's a total bonus!
  66. Add more iodized salt to your shopping list. Iodine is an
    essential trace element; and salting is an important task in
    preserving. Check the label as you'd be surprised that many
    sea salts do not contain iodine. Learn about salt.
  67. Boil rice. Seriously, you don't know how to boil rice? You
    may rely on the directions for box of rice, microwave frozen
    rice dishes, or plug in a rice cooker, but none of these
    options will work if there's a power blackout. It's better to
    work on this skill now before you need it. Now come up
    with some recipes around this inexpensive staple.
  68. Make some food with grains, beans and legumes. Sure,
    you've stocked-piled long term survival foods, but do you
    know how to cook something with them? Make some lentils
    with rice, mill some flour and bake some bread, sprout
    something. Practice making something edible from samples
    of your food storage. Legumes (including beans, lentils,
    peas, and peanuts), are rich in protein and also a good
    source of fiber. Plus they're low in fat. But if you don't
    know how to cook something, then they are worthless in
    your pantry. Rice and beans will probably be your staple, so
    you'll need to know how to make something tasty. Brown
    some rice in butter, then add some diced tomatoes and
    brown sugar and you'll have a wonderful Mexican style rice,
    that will be very tasty with beans.
  69. Stock up on board and card games and books. How will
    you pass the time with your family when they watch T.V.?
    Buy books and games early for the holidays and keep them
    in reserve for the day the lights go out. Here is a list of our
    favorite family board games for prepper families.
  70. Splurge on a Prepper's Cookbook. There aren't many
    around and the Prepper's Pantry, pictured left is a good
    one. Where else are you going to learn how to cook those
    dehydrated potatoes?
  71. Learn how to read a map. Figure out how to navigate
    without a compass. A compass might not work and GPS
    might not be available. Your bug-out plan may require that
    you check alternate routes.
  72. Learn how to use a compass. The Silva lesson on how to
    use a compass is a great use of just six minutes of your
    time. Bookmark this page and watch the video if you don't
    know how to use the bezel ring on your compass. If you
    don't already have a compass, know that the Silva
    compass, left is highly rated. Keep your compass in the car
    or on your person so that you always have one with you.
  73. Be thankful if you love meat, consider eating bugs, and
    say goodbye to vegetarianism. Americans could certainly
    learn to live on less meat. Mykel Hawke, Captain, U.S.
    Army Special Forces, and star of "Man, Woman, Wild" on
    the Discovery Channel, says that "About 90% of bugs and
    animals can be eaten by humans, but 90% of plants can
    not." That's enough information to know that you simply
    can't beat meat when it comes to your prepping plans. One
    can only stay a vegetarian thanks to a stable agrarian
    society. Once we've been knocked off the power grid,
    survival kicks in an sustains itself through meat. Americans
    could certainly learn to live on less meat.
  74. Cut your old garments. If you're not going to donate or
    sell them, then start snipping your old clothes into quilt
    sized sheets to use when the toilet paper runs out! This
    material will surely store better than toilet paper. You'll
    need a plan B anyway. When water is sparse, you don't
    want to use it for your "arse."
  75. Check your tarps and supplies. Do you have enough
    plywood to patch up a broken window or to batten down
    the hatches in the event of a world in chaos? A tarp can
    help you in a pinch. Tarps have many other uses! A tarp
    can help you temporarily patch a roof. The thing is ordinary
    blue tarps may attract too much attention. Prepper's often
    want to stay under the radar. The camouflage tarp, right
    can help you hide many things. Be sure to have enough
    duct tape, bungee cord and stakes on hand. Yes, they
    make camouflage duct tape. Get some camouflage nets,
    too!
  76. Buy some non-food supplies at the grocery store. Toilet
    paper: check. Paper towels: check. Trash bags: check. Can-
    opener: double check! Consider disposable vinyl gloves for
    sanitation, and dish washing gloves to help protect your
    hands. Then there's disinfectant wipes, and freezer bags.
    There are so many non-food supplies to hoard while they
    are still available.
  77. Head to the pawn shop. Pawn some useless stuff and get
    into junk silver coins or hard cold cash. Investing in
    precious metals could pay off the day the dollar devalues
    to next to nothing, just the way it did during the Great
    Depression, (owning pre-1964 coins can be considered a
    collectible, and likely won't be confiscated) but if you don't
    have a year's supply of food or more, don't even bother
    with trying to get some silver.
  78. Hide and save your silver, start collecting nickel and
    copper. Now that you've got some junk silver, find a good
    spot for safekeeping. Next on the list is to go through your
    coins and start sorting the old copper pennies and nickels
    from the new ones. Nickel certainly has more value as
    nickel than the 5 cents it's worth. Likewise, so does the
    copper penny. These raw materials may prove to be a
    barter item in the new world.
  79. Explore some new canned meats. Put down that can of
    SPAM and see what other varieties of meat you should
    stock in your Prepper's pantry.
  80. Start a Prepper's Binder (Survival Manual). Gather all
    your favorite articles, recipes, instructions and checklists in
    one place. This personal resource will be invaluable to your
    family in the event you are not able to continue preparing
    and protecting your family.
  81. Review your homeowners insurance coverage. FEMA
    says everyone lives in a flood zone. Ask your insurance
    agent to advise you on proper coverage. Oh forget FEMA,
    instead get your own food insurance!
  82. Prep for your dog or cat. Buy Friskies & Pedigree
    canned meat! Not to eat, silly! Although, we've heard of
    some crazy Preppers who plan to eat this inexpensive meat
    source (not us); however, surely, it's better than eating
    crickets. Dried dog or cat food is your easiest prep
    (provided you have a rodent proof container). Here's how to
    prep for your dog.
  83. Crank it up with a crank radio. Information could be the
    difference between life and death. If you have a crank
    radio, then you're able to stay on top of important news if
    it should surface. Best of all, all the power you need is
    available in your hand.
  84. Join like minded friends on Twitter, Facebook and
    Pinterest. Visit HappyPreppers on Twitter and hook up
    with others who are preparing for the best case scenario.
  85. Get a fire extinguisher and learn how to use it. Let
    everyone in the family know where you've stashed the fire
    extinguisher and give them a quick lesson how to use it.
    You just may have to play firefighter someday.
  86. Watch a Prepper video. See our list of Prepper television
    shows and movies. "Take Shelter" DVD, right is on it.
    Noah had his arc, Curtis had his bomb shelter. This Cannes
    Film Festival movie is food for thought and will help you at
    least feel camaraderie with your fellow Preppers. When all
    the world thinks you're crazy, this movie certainly will at
    least make you feel normal in the insane world where most
    people don't prepare!
  87. Know what you'll do to survive. Watch this short urban
    survival video featuring survival expert Cody Lundin. You
    may not take his advice, but at least you'll know what he's
    doing. Get to know Cody, the shoeless survivalist from
    Seattle. You may just want to purchase "When all Hell
    Breaks Loose: stuff you need to survive when disaster
    strikes," pictured right. In it you'll learn the various uses of
    ordinary freezer bags and the realities of food plan.
  88. Learn how to tie knots. Teach your kids how to tie knots,
    too. With all the Velcro around, it's an art that has gone by
    the wayside and yet tying knots is a very useful skill.
  89. Go to target practice. Build your marksmanship. You're
    only as skilled as your last shooting session.  Don't like
    guns? Learn archery or pick up a sling shot and practice.;
  90. Get a HAM Radio license: Communications could be the
    key to survival in knowing the status of water and food
