Getting started

8:15 PM

The biggest leap for most people is simply getting started. Whether you want to have extra food on hand or you want to move into an underground bunker, the first step can sometimes be a challenge.

For most people, finances play a huge role in how much they're able to prepare. If you're living paycheck-to-paycheck, you're going to have a more difficult time getting started than someone with unlimited resources, but it's not impossible to start a food storage or start living more economically responsibly.


The simplest way to start a food storage is to clip coupons and use the money you save to buy a few extra things each time you go to the grocery store. Start storing food up in your linen closet, coat closet, or even under the beds! If you're purchasing canned and dried goods, consider storing them someplace other than the kitchen to make sure your food storage is separate from your every day food, as well as to keep things out of the kitchen in case of looters. In the event of something catastrophic, few raiders are going to go snooping under your bathroom sink looking for food: they'll be focused on the kitchen.
