Common Mistakes That Preppers Make


You decide to get ready in case things go wrong. Once you start storing your food, pay attention to avoid the most common mistakes that beginners make when prepping.

Stock up on food that you are not used to eating regularly – Unfortunately pizza store will not work, however, you must store food that you eat in everyday life. A survival situation is not the right time to try something for the first time since it can go wrong and your stomach will suffer.

Save all your food in one place – A common mistake is to designate an area of your home as “deposit”. If you have only one place available in your home it is already better than nothing, but if you have more room try to store food in different areas in the event of a disaster destroy such room.

Stocking up on guns. Although having guns and ammo maybe useful to protect yourself, and you might be able to trade some of them for food, it is unrealistic to think that you will be able to hunt for food, specially if you live in the city.


  • Books are less common these days because we do so much reading on the Internet and Kindles. But if the power goes out, having a good collection of survival books could save your life.
  • Your body will have trouble adjusting to the new bare-bones diet and you’ll suffer from food fatigue, where your survival food won’t be appetizing even when you’re very hungry.
  • As much as we all love our pets, for some reason it’s easy to forget that they need preps, too.

“Although having a bug out bag and a vehicle survival kit is important, unless you have advance warning of a disaster it will be very difficult to get from your home to your bug out location. The streets will be congested, roads and entire areas could be inaccessible, and gas could become unavailable. That’s why I think it’s so important to be ready to shelter in place.”
