Many of us are depending with trepidation on Social Security for our retirement years. It’s not that we want to depend on Social Security; it’s that we don’t have any other option. We don’t have retirement from the companies we’ve worked for; we don’t have fully-funded retirement accounts; and we don’t have the money we need sitting in bank accounts or investments.
The problem is, Social Security was never intended to be the only source of retirement income for senior citizens. The plan was based on providing 40% of a retired person’s income, not 100%.
Yet it is often a much higher percentage of a retiree’s total income, simply because they don’t have other sources.
With this in mind, it just makes sense to get the most out of your Social Security benefits. That means getting the biggest payments possible, so that you have enough to live on.
Whether you cook a little or a lot, you’re eventually going to have some sort of kitchen disaster. It may be a fire, or you may just burn the cookies or put too much salt in the soup.
Relax, because we’re going to talk about the solutions to many of these problems over the next paragraphs.
If you’re reading this, you’ve likely seen at least one article listing foods that you should have in your survival stockpile because you’re interested in it. But … what if you only had the option of living on one food?
You’re stuck after a SHTF scenario with one crop and nothing else but it, other than water. Is there one food that you could live on? Let’s talk about that.
A prepper’s mind will always find ways to survive when others won’t see any way out of the crisis. When it comes to generating electricity, there are many unexplored options laying right around your own home.
If you have pipes with water flowing through them, there may be several ways to generate 12 volts or more of electricity with relatively little effort.
Even if the majority of pipes in your home are made of plastic, there are still ways to make use of them, as well as every tap and drain in your home. Depending on the optimizations that you choose, you might need running water to generate electricity.
