After watching the Bob Gaskin seminar on the Morals of Survival after the SHTF, I changed the way I prep. When we first started prepping stockpiling rice and beans was one of the first things we did, but that discipline faded and honestly I haven"e;t purchased rice or beans in months. I have now vowed to spend $10 every week on rice and beans for all the right reasons. First for my family and secondly I know I will not be able to say to "NO" to the neighbor or friend who after the SHTF knocks on my door and asks for help. I"e;ll be preparing buckets of rice, beans and seasonings for just those occasions.
