In my book, Start Prepping!, I list numerous products and resources that can help you to become more fully prepared for any crisis. This page provides a comprehensive list of the products that I wholeheartedly recommend though you clearly may not need all of them. However, I do have most of these products and have participated in many of the classes/resources mentioned in the skills section.

This page is organized around the 10-Step Path to Preparedness I created to serve as a navigational guide in Start Prepping!, and it starts with my 10 most valued items for prepping and self-sufficiency. The need for many of these items is self-explanatory, but to understand why you need others you may want to read Start Prepping!
