If there’s one thing you can say about prepping, it’s that your work is never done. There’s always something new to buy, some skill you need to learn, or a disaster that you know you just aren’t quite ready for yet. It can be downright overwhelming, especially if you happen to be new at the whole thing, but also, even when you’ve been at it for years.
It’s enough to make some folks just give up. They know too much to completely turn a blind eye to the happenings of the world, but they just can’t summon up the energy to work at preparing on a regular basis.
Others sort of halfway prepare. They have a few supplies but they know there’s a lot more they should be doing. If only they had the energy and money to do it.
It’s enough to make others stop before they ever start. Perhaps they know that bad things can happen but then they go and check out a prepping website and see the huge tasks that others are accomplishing, view the pantries of folks who have been at it for years, and mentally tally up the cost of the things they don’t yet have. All they can see is the things they have yet to do and thousands of dollars spent. They immediately close out of the page and ask themselves, “Who has time for that? I’m not rich and I have a life!”
Prepping doesn’t have to be like that.
Prepping doesn’t have to be the daunting task that I’ve just described. It doesn’t have to empty the kids’ college funds. It doesn’t have to take every waking moment after work until bedtime.
You just have to know how to break things down.
