I will tell you a secret about prepping articles. When you see an article that looks like it was written for beginners, read it! It takes time to glean good information for your own preparedness plan. It is rare I read an article about preparedness tips for beginners and not found something that has blown me, hardly a beginner, away. It goes back to discounting any source of information. You lose out on so much once you start denying the importance of any source of information.
This list is a powerful collection that has several great ideas I have not considered. They are very simple ideas that make sense. When we have fear and are rushed because that is what preparing does. Every single move you make is a move towards better and more sound preparedness. Never discount a beginners list.
