View Full Version : Priority List

1st April 2010, 01:21
I have been thinking and contacting a few people about how to prioritize a list of what you need to have and what you need to be prepared for...

get water filters, stock up on food, get a weapon, buy land, squirrel away money (out of the bank), buy equipment, get a house in the country, buy self-sufficiency books, get healthy, get seeds, convert dollars into gold or silver, get car fixed, get bug-out bag...

... AND pay bills, ... ... ??

needless to say... I have become very confused on what to do first...??

I talked to a gentleman that frequents another chatroom... he suggested to get the core necessities before you do anything else...

1-air (does that mean make orgonite? or get a gas mask?)
2-water (ok thats a given- get good filters, and get extras) www.armchairsurvivalist.com (very inexpensive and great)
3-food (at least a years worth of food stocked up- start with beans and rice, oatmeal- stuff that will store easily )ok so now where do I keep it?

and then what??

I started this thread to help me gather my thoughts and lists...and maybe it will inspire y'all too!

and I came to the realization that it depends on which angle you are coming from (prepared for disaster [fear-based] or getting back to nature [love-based]) as to what you would include on your lists and what you do in your actions...

so, since my goal is to get back to nature...

*(I am looking at 2 different Intentional Communities right now for a december move)... so this is really going to help to step up to the challenge of getting it all together in time for that to happen...
