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!
