Maybe you are new to prepping, or you have already started preparing but you are overwhelmed by the amount of information you find online. I am asking you and you one simple question that should at the basis of all your survival plans: what are you preparing for?
Are you preparing for a war, for a societal breakdown, for a blackout, for a pandemic or for retirement? Just because you have started building a stockpile or growing your food it doesn’t mean you are going to survive any disaster.
With this thing in mind, for this week’s Prep Blog Review I’ve gathered four articles on this topic to help you prioritize your prepping. Tell us in the comment section below what are you prepping for.
1. Prepping Priorities – What Should You Be Prepping For?
“When we jump on preparedness sites, sometimes we’re immediately struck by the enormous loads of things to buy, do, and learn. We immediately start hearing about WROL, battle rifles, ammo counts in the thousands, pressure canners, INCH/BOB bags and locations, pace count, and primitive skills. World- and nation-altering events such as nuclear war, internet-ending viruses, Nibiru, Agenda 21 and NWO, and the like pop up.
They all have their places, but sometimes things get missed and it can make for a very overwhelming introduction. It can make it hard to prioritize where to spend our time and financial budgets even for those with experience and years of exposure to the prepared mindset.
To make it a little easier to prioritize, we can work in stages. We can look at what is most likely to occur in the near future and our lifetimes, and use that information to help us decide where to focus our time, efforts and resources.”

The ideas seem unlikely, considering that the last time there was a full-on war on the American mainland was during the American Civil War.
Previous to that, there were some foreign invasions but our land has been protected from battles against other countries almost two centuries.”

4. What Will It Take To Survive The Coming Pandemic
“This past winter, the flu epidemic in Central Tennessee made the news across the country. I got phone calls from family in Florida about how we were doing. Our local school system closed for several days. The truth is that we avoided the flu this year.
Everyone that we knew who did get the flu was able to get Tamiflu and got well after a week or so. It was more of an inconvenience than an emergency. But it did give us a reason to think about when action would be necessary.”
