While you are on this page here's 10 prepping mistakes newbies make.
1. Too much research and no resources in place.
You should immediatley have extra long life food in the pantry and more sanitary products.
2. No immediate basic plan for bugging in and bugging out.
You should immediately start working out a plan for staying in and evacuating a disaster. This plan will become more specific as your skills evolve.
3. No EDC/ GHB.
An everyday carry or get home bag can be as simple as a poncho, a lighter, a water filter bottle kept topped up and a couple of muesli bars. Essentially having the means to stay warm, hydrated and not starving is something you should have on hand at all times.
4. Telling the world.
It's tempting to tell everyone they should prep.
First think if this turned into a famine could I be targeted.
5. Scaring loved ones with theories of how bad shtf would get.
Again Preppers School covers this at length, usually one partner is all for prepping and the other isn't.
Baby steps is the way to go, any progress is good progress, start them with the idea of preparing for long term power outages and a little extra food security. A butane cooker and butane cans, a rainwater tank and progress to chickens. This is an ideal way to get them started with the concept of a bushfire taking out power and shops running out of supplies.
6. All the gear and no idea.
Have a play with your kit, go camping in the backyard if you can't make it to a forest for a while.
Take your bug out bag in your car and go away from your neighbourhood to avoid telling neighbours why you are carrying a backpack- take your pack for a walk, is it heavy? light? supportive enough?
Run a grid down drill. Simply get your gear together and turn off the power and turn off the water and gas for a weekend. Then work out how to do it better.
7. Dependant on Plan A.
Having stocks in your house "homesteading" is great but if it's burnt down or overrun then what?
A plan B is why most preppers have an everyday carry bag, this might be all you have. Imagine what a refugee has in a bag to cross vast distances.
Now imagine what you'd need at a minimum and what else would really help.
A cache buried in a park somewhere between work and home or home and your bug out location if you had to do it on foot or on a bike.
8. Too much weight, not enough speed.
It's a trap, the worst of them all, aim for about a 1/4 of your bodyweight if you are putting together a bug out bag.
9. Putting it off until later.
Job loss and disasters often come without warning, what are you waiting for- get prepping for peace of mind. Better to have and not need than to need and not have!
10. Out of date inventory
Preppers cycle their food stocks through two pantries so we never throw out food. One for bulk long life and one we eat when the dates are getting closer to expiring.
Check your inventory at regular intervals. Every 6 months is ideal.
In Preppers School you get lists of things that are recommended and templates to write expiry dates in to make it even easier.
