Hello from Derbyshire!

Post by lumille » Thu Mar 19, 2020 8:43 pm

Hello, my name is Lu, I'm in my late twenties. I've been a prepper for a while but never sought out forums/groups/etc. I am looking forward to learning more about this lifestyle and getting some fab tips.

If your roughing it, Your doing it wrong ;)

Lack of planning on your part doesn't make it an emergency on mine

Hello and welcome to the Forum. :)

Firstly have a good read before diving head first into a lifestyle change.

Store what you eat/eat what you store.

If you can cook look at individual items rather than the finished one, i.e. no bread in stores but plenty of yeast sugar and flour to make your own.

Try to stock up on medications you/family use both OTC and prescription.

Never forget comfort items whether that's chocolate, alcohol or a good book.

DO NOT PANIC, there is always time and always things you can do to make your life easier.
