Just how prepared are you? Some ideas that may not have been considered
Yeah ok, so we all got food, water, security, alternate energy sources, yada, yada...….BUT......do you have extra sets of clothes, towels, bedding, etc put away just for SHTF? If you have kids, they'll need even more as they grow, diapers too are another one. And even if you don't have kids now, there's a strong possibility to be in your near future if you're of childbearing age...especially after a life altering type event.
Also, depending on what type of 'event' happens it's possible we could see the need to stay indoors in case of nuclear/radiation fallout or some other contaminant or other event. Who knows what may happen, right? If for any reason we are stuck indoors for any length of time, is there enough oxygen in your home? Houseplants are a great way of getting rid of the CO2 in exchange for oxygen.
Even if you don't really have a green thumb, there are some plants that are easy keepers. I have some aloe's, pothos, a spider start, Christmas catcus, a pineapple top and an orchid. So far they all seem to be doing fine and growing, though the pothos is going crazy and all in spite of my abuse & neglect. I also just picked up a boston fern the other day. I love these, but have always had trouble keeping one going.
Other options for those odd preps......pest control including flea, tick or other bug control....then there's mice & rats. Come SHTF, and these may become out of control.
Any other suggestions???
