Adventures of a New Prepper

Welcome to my newest blogging adventure, a chronicle of my journey to preparedness.

Since many of my friends and family think my prepping adventures are a descent into madness, I have decided to remain anonymous on this blog. This anonymity will enable me to share my supplies without fear of eye-rolling ... and will allow my supplies to remain somewhat covert in case of disaster.

I must confess that I'm clinically unable to keep a secret. Well ... that's not entirely true. I can keep other people's secrets ... just not my own. When I get excited about something (such as prepping) I feel compelled to Share The News with everyone I meet. To give my beloved spouse a break from my Extreme Enthusiasm, I decided to write down my adventures to share online.

I truly, deeply believe in the importance of prepping. It makes good financial sense, and it provides supplies for my family in case of disaster ... and holy moly -- it's fun! Prepping is a perfect outlet for my organizational obsession (the labels! the bins! the boxes!), for my thrill of the hunt (10 boxes of cereal, 10 cans of refried beans, 5 packages of cheese for only $14!), and for my deep-seated desire to make my home a self-contained sanctuary for those I love.

I look forward to sharing my adventures in this space!


  1. I'm so glad you decided to start a prepping blog! I'm looking forward to reading more about your prepping journey. Emily

  2. I think it's FUN too! It's a very rewarding feeling to know that we are being as wise as the ants who build and store INSTINCTIVELY!!

    It's just plain GOOD COMMON SENSE to stock up and to provide well for our families!!
