Becoming Prepared

Don't let the word proper in the title scare you. You aren't collecting food and water and supplies to live off of for 6 months. In fact it is only helping you get set up for being 72 hours. With that being said you do need a lot of items especially if there is more than one person in your household.

This book gives you 52 different proper projects that you can learn to do so that you are more prepared if something does happen for longer than 72 hours. Think of these 52 different projects as Pinterest of survival ideas that you can access in case of a power or internet outage, which is why you need to buy the book.

Each week there is a new prepper project for a year but for the first 20 weeks there is a shopping list that has you buy items incrementally as to not overwhelm your budget.

In the case of a power outage you will want to have pre packaged and canned foods available so that you are not required to open up your refrigerator and freezer so that you can hopefully salvage most of it.

I actually picked this book for my book club to read this month as I am hosting. I willing to bet that none of them would have normally picked up this book or considered it, but I am hoping that even if they don't starts becoming more prepared it gives them some ideas and plants a little nugget in their brain for the future.

So while other book clubs are reading some New York Times bestseller that probably features a natural disaster or the end of the world I have picked a book that helps them think about how to become more prepared for when we have our next tornado or some other kind of disaster.
