1. Think Of It As Insurance
People spend thousands of dollars a year on insurance for their cars, houses and lives, but they don't do the same for survival. It can be easy to think that will never happen to you, but disasters happen all the time, all around the world. Prepping for the unexpected provides you insurance for the future.

3. You Will Be Prepared for Power Outages
It's very likely that you've encountered a power outage in your lifetime. Usually everything up and running in a few hours, but in the case of longer outages it's good to be prepared with long lasting candles and food supplies.
4. It Will Save You Money
Buying in bulk and always keeping your food supplies stocked means you can wait until the products you want are on sale, which can save you a lot of money in the long run.

Everyone, not just preppers, should have a fire safety plan for their home. Home fires happen everyday, having a fire extinguisher, fire blanket and a fire safety plan can save you and your family's lives.
