    As a prepper for almost 20 years, I'd say the first step has to be knowing what SHTF scenarios you might face. Off the top of my head, I can think of at least 10 distinct SHTF and near-SHTF situations that are currently very possible, and many levels of severity within each of those.

    You can't effectively prep if you're not clear what you're prepping for, and if you don't vividly imagine yourself and your family in those situations. That requires a lot of constructive daydreaming.

    A good place to start is by reading alternative news and "conspiracy" websites and forums. You'll get a lot of ideas about what can happen there. A lot of preppers have their favorite scenarios, but try to prep for all of the ones you consider possible, focusing on things and skills you generally need. As other members have pointed out, things like food, water, health, shelter, etc. are common needs in most scenarios. Similarly, certain skills like first-aid, gardening, firearms training, etc. are also important to have in most scenarios.

    OMG Gus, 10 distinct SHTF situations... which one should I Prep for? I prefer to prep for the end of the world, a nice bottle of bourbon, and the last of my ice cubes, and be content that you are safe somewhere.

    Whoops, don't want to scare the newbies, my bad.

    Water, water water........and more water. Buy it, store it, find ways to collect it! Also learn to use what you already have (water heater, toilet tank, pool) and find ways to purify/preserve it.

    Also jump into those medical supplies. Been thinking about it lately and a toothache isn't a big deal but during emergency/SHTF its gonna be a pain in the tooth (you thought I was going to say ass). Infection is bad, m'kay!
    Water water water YES!
    Of course, I have had to remind some newbies that rainwater collected from your roof system is not potable. An invitation to visit my rooftop - where they get to see for themselves the copious amounts of raccoon and bird crap that water will flow through before it gets to their rain barrel - gets the point across LOL.
