Today we’re taking a look at survival articles from around the web and including some helpful commentary to help you choose which ones would be the most useful!
From shtfblog.com: When #2 Becomes a #1 Priority
This article covers a very important issue for every prepper: sanitation and waste disposal. Actually going in some pretty good depth, the post also includes helpful DIY suggestions and recommendations to help you minimize the chance of disease or illness. It’s bad enough during a disaster that most toilets and such won’t be working, so make sure you and your family have a secondary plan in place to avoid the danger of rotting filth.
From theeconomiccollapseblog.com: If This Keeps Up, They Will Have to Start Putting Armed Guards on Food Trucks.
Although you should always take “alarmist” news with a small heap of salt, the situation building up slowly as presented in this article is certainly worthy of the title. Rather than a single event increasing food prices or limiting production, we are currently suffering from a “food budget attack” on multiple fronts. Pigs and bananas dying from disease, drought devastating the West, inflation and wage stagnation making it more difficult for the average person to afford groceries…all of these are coming to a head simultaneously. Although the idea of armored food trucks is laughable now, it is certainly possible that we will all have to tighten our already strained budgets just to continue eating in the near future.
From preparedchristian.net: Tips From a Storage Auctioneer
Auctions are a great way to net some deals, and some famous TV shows of late have made the idea of buying abandoned storage units extremely popular. This post offers a realistic series of tips and anecdotes to assist you in getting some bargains at these auctions, which is great for being able to really stock up as a prepper on a budget. One thing of particular interest to me was the more mundane finds (such as tons of laundry detergent) that could make even mundane finds very useful to the average prepper. Check this article out and see what you think.
