Our house was toasty when others were cold and worried about pipes freezing. So I just continue to do what I do, and ignore her jabs about my prepping. My extra medical preps have also come in handy a time or two. So just keep on plugging away. If you ever really need your stores, you (and your family) will be damned glad you have them.

    if you ever turn her - she'll be a damn good prepper >> she's persistent as hell - usually only takes one good SHTF to shut a disbeliever up - the problem usually goes sideways and they start boasting about not suffering because "we" are prepared ....

    My family is just me and my mother, wich is elderly. I have a brother but he lives 800 miles away.
    I am the "family prepper", my mother does not mind me buying extra stuff. We used to live in the countryside, so having some more was important because one could not always go to town to pick it up. The only thing she complains is about water storage, this one she thinks is too much.

    Let your wife and family know that your job is make sure that they are taken care of in case MURPHY makes an unannounced visit.

    Include things that make HER life extra Lug Wrench for the extra case of TP per extra few cans of soup everytime you go the store...candles, matches etc

    Then when a small little thing like the power goes out due to a storm, you bring out the goods and you are the hero!

    You get the picture but stop using the phrase PREPPER, because of that dipshit show a few years ago it creates negative emotion...

    Good luck
    Good advice @Slippy !
