Review of Chicken Fajita MRE from Meal Kit Supply

This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com I’ve been having a back log of product and book reviews, both on items I purchased on my own, and review samples sent by the company or publisher.  It takes me a while to get the reviews done, as I like to read/test each one individually before I post anything about it.  I usually post on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays, so on Saturdays I will do product and books reviews.

Apartment Garden

Tomatoes This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com I mentioned in a previous Monday Musings I started the apartment garden.  The day I started the garden our area had a cold front, and temperatures were down in the low 30s (that’s cold for Houston this time of year).  I had to keep the plants indoors at night, and took them out for sun during the day.  Now that it’s warming up again, I can leave them outside. Oregano and thai […]

Spooked about What Happened in Cyprus?

This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com Everyday we hear about the banking developments in Cyprus, where bank holidays were declared and a “tax” on deposits is being instituted.  Depositors stand to lose a large amount of their accounts. It seems preppers are not the only ones wondering about this – even at work, concerns about Cyprus are being discussed in conversations at the break room.   Seeing the long lines, reading accounts from residents makes you wonder if this can […]

Emergency Essentials Baking Mix Issue

  This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com We were moving our food storage around to make room for supplies when we noticed these two cans of Emergency Essentials Provident Pantry Honey Cornbread Muffin Mix were looking odd.  The top and bottom of the cans had lifted and were puffy.  There are no dents in the cans.

In an Emergency, Your Life Could Depend on It: Check your Water Filter

This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com Our tap water has a heavily chlorinated taste.  Instead of buying bottled water, we use our Berkey Light Water Purifier on a daily basis.   Now that we use it all the time, I realized there is some maintenance that goes will using a water purifier, no matter what brand you use. After using the filter for about three months, I noticed a reddish coating on the water filter elements, so we disassembled […]

Don’t Become a Boiled Frog – The Need to Respond Appropriately to Problems

     It is said that if you slowly increase the water temperature, a frog won’t notice and will eventually and passively die in the pot.   The following is a guest post from David Spero at Code Green Prep. Yesterday, Bernie wrote about Five Reasons Why You May Have to Bug Out Even Though You Don’t Want To.  It is very important to realize that sometimes we need to bug out, but our inertia, our fear of change, and […]

5 Reasons Why You May have to Bug Out Even Though You Don’t Want to

This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com One of the most hotly argued points in the prepping community is whether it is advisable to “shelter in place” or stay in your home or bug out when there is an emergency.  Many preppers would readily choose to shelter in place to be close to their emergency supplies.   Staying put would also be easier if you have no bug out retreat or destination.  I say it really depends on the type of […]

Bartering For Preppers

Bartering for Preppers is a Guest Post by Robert Creech As everyone who engages in some form of prepping knows, it’s expensive. Most of us will never have all of the gear and resources we want, instead we prioritize and get by with what we can. However I’ve found that many people are leaving money on the table, so to speak, because they have skills (and maybe resources) that they aren’t fully utilizing. Yes, I’m talking about bartering. You have […]
