The Ready Center - Life Straw 2

Article submitted by Brian S. Kiefat @ The Ready Center

The recommendation that we make in the “Prepping on $20 a Paycheck” series are usually pretty broad.  We do our best to leave color, style, brand, etc. up for your choosing.  However this time we’re not going to do that.  Nothing about this recommendation can or should be left for interpretation, so let me make this crystal clear for you:  We want you to buy yourself a LifeStraw.

This is the one and only time during the “Prepping on $20 a Paycheck” series that we will deliberately tell you to go out and purchase a very specific brand of product.  This is not a sales gimmick for us.  The Ready Center is not “in bed” with LifeStraw or vice versa.  As a matter of fact, The Ready Center doesn’t even sell the LifeStraw.  The reason for this plainly stated recommendation is simple:  It’s an awesome (more…)

A water-purification minded inventor by the name of Glen Meder, along with APN (American Preppers Network), is hosting a free web seminar entitled “Understanding Red Cross Recommendations for Treating Water in an Emergency!”  The online event is scheduled to take place Thursday May 15 at 7pm Central (8pm EST/6pm MST/5pm PST).  Will this seminar be any good?!  I honestly don’t know, but I can tell you one thing for sure – the price is right.

Imagine this scenario: You lose electricity for a couple of weeks starting this evening.  Now look around your house and ask yourself a few questions. How would you cook?  How would you bathe or shower?  How would you keep you and your kids warm.  What would you use to keep your kids (more…)

Article Submitted by Brian S. Kiefat @ The Ready Center

In the previous 3 articles of “Starting with the Basics,” we provided you a preparedness framework in regards to your water, food, and shelter preparations (please click on any of the previous 3 to be linked to that specific article!).  In the last article of this series, we will be discussing the fourth and final preparedness consideration:  Security.

Now that you have your water, food, and shelter needs covered, let’s talk about keeping them protected.  Believe it or not, there are bad people out there who want what you have and (more…)

Water - The Ready Center

Article submitted by Brian S. Kiefat @ The Ready Center

First of all, congratulations on surviving 2012!  Turns out the end of the world wasn’t so bad after all!  In celebration of surviving the world’s great demise, The Ready Center will begin a new series of articles entitled “Prepping on $20 a Paycheck”.  It is our hope that these articles will better prepare you for life after 2012.

Since most of us get paid twice a month, we will be publishing a new article twice a month for the rest of the year.  On the 1st and the 15th of every month we will discuss what item(s) you should purchase and add to (or begin) your preparedness kit.  This kit will be assembled over the course of one year and (more…)

We are beginning a 4 part series titled, “Starting with the Basics”, in which we hope to aid those who are new to the preparedness scene and are looking for a place to start.  We have broken it down into what we are calling the “The 4 Basic Prepping (more…)
