Youtube Preppers Take A Shift From Prepping How To's To Current Event News


Your pantry may look like this. It may have more or less food/goods. The pantry's will vary from household to household. The one common thing is we are awake to what is happening in the world and we are getting ready for it. 

Youtube is a great go-to place for prepping tips and tutorials. For many many years I have seen video after video of warnings of what is to come. It came in the form of Covid where we saw the true nature of the unprepared and needy. Store shelves wiped clean of toilet paper, food, water, diapers/wipes, formula, cleaning supplies and more. Some people were faced with angry, disgruntled, and aggressive people. Limits where placed on goods 1 or 2 per customer. 

Now, we are nearing what I feel is WW3 with Russia and it's supporting Countries. Failing banks and rising interest rate hikes 6 since Covid hit alone in the U.S.A. Food and product prices that are often out of reach for families. Now, the tide has turned with a large portion of the Youtube Prepper community. Their content changed into Current Events striking a bell of alarm day in and day out. Most feel they have provided enough videos on what to do for prepping and shifted gears. I totally understand there is only so many ways to teach the same thing over and over again. A smaller portion have stopped sharing their prepping efforts completely because they live in suburbs where they can easily be targeted. 

The question is: Is this hurting the people trying to learn to prep? 
I hope not. There many videos out there that provide step by step instructions on how to fortify their pantry's with extended food safely. So, don't focus on the news and place your energy into your preps.

Walmart Grocery Store Haul With Prices

 I went to my local Walmart this week. As I walked around I couldn't believe my eyes. The prices are soo high. I passed by many items that I felt were simply to costly. I gathered as much on my list as I could that I felt was within reason. Then I walked up to self check out. Our store only has 1 cashier available for an entire store to boot. After all was said and done my grocery's cost $219.50

I felt it was important to share this video with prices as a historical document that can be referred to in the future. Prices will continue to climb. As more weather events effect farmers and crops.  Many countries are keeping their major exports of sugar, grain/wheat, coffee etc. for their own people. Many have stock piled preparing for War. 

I will be doing the same for my family preparing my home for uncertain times ahead.
