is a Mini Prepper?
A Mini Prepper is someone who prepares for food and water
shortages as well as the loss of housing or utilities.
A Mini Prepper is NOT preparing for the "end of the world."
Mini Preppers prepare for the rough times that we have all experienced and we
know will come again, whether due to storm and power outages, loss of
employment, or natural disasters.
Mini Preppers do not want to take up room standing in grocery
lines during emergencies to buy water and other supplies. They want to let
others who have not prepared buy what they need.
Mini Preppers are happy and READY TO SHARE with their family,
friends and neighbors. They do not accumulate weapons and do not want to
Every region is subject to different natural disasters. We are all subject
to disruptions in our fragile food chain. The advice on these pages will be for
families to be prepared for these emergencies and stand ready to help others.
I've heard people say "Why store emergency supplies? Look at the tsunami
in Japan and all the people who had to flee their homes." That was a
perfect example of why we should store extra food and supplies in our homes.
Yes, those people left their homes. Where did they go? They went up
the hill. Then who fed them until help came? It was the people who
lived in the houses that were safe. Hopefully they had what they needed to
help these homeless people.
If the situation were reversed, and the people up the hill had to flee to the
valleys, hopefully they would be helped by those people.
I've always judged the right and wrong of a situation by thinking if everyone
did this, would we all be better off? In this case, the answer is yes.
The stronger we make our homes and our families, the more secure we all will be.
