From survivalsherpa.wordpress.com: 50+ Dumpster Diva Hacks That Turn Waste Into Wealth
“Dumpster diving” is mainly the province of bums and hobos, at least according to “conventional wisdom”. However, as is typical when it comes to prepping, that wisdom misses a lot of the value to be found in digging through garbage for the treasures left behind. This article demonstrates this very well, including demonstrations of the kind of projects “useless garbage” were used in. From a CD rack used to feed rabbits to an entire house built of used tires, the “junk” shown in this post proved to be far more useful than their original owners thought! Preparedness definitely requires an ingenuitive mind, and repurposing garbage is one excellent way to make you rethink how you can use common and simple items. Check this article out, and see if you can find a few items of your own to repurpose.

Sometimes an article doesn’t need many words to give some great advice, and the infamous FerFal does a great job summing up the things you’d need to know in a pretty terrible situation. His advice is extremely simple, but it covers the most important things that you would need to know if you were trapped for an extended period of time in a place suffering like war-torn Syria currently is. Given FerFal’s own experiences in Argentina, these tips are definitely coming from someone who has been “in the survival trenches”, so to speak, and are definitely worth checking out.
From rethinksurvival.com: Guess What Silly Problem Kept Me Stranded 300 Miles From Home?
Real-life experiences are always good examples, particularly when the author is willing to be honest about his weaknesses! This post makes a key point throughout the description of the event that kept the author stranded…every little thing can help, or hurt! You never know when one small thing you overlooked can make all of your major improvements and preparations completely useless, which is why practice and practical uses for your preps are so important. Furthermore, even just one practice one won’t do it, as evidenced by the author overlooking the crucial detail that left him unable to move despite a pretty thorough vehicle inspection previously. Practice and judicious care are the way to overcome the problem of little details, so check this article out to get a real-life example of this principle in action.
