9 Mistakes Typically Made by Preppers

posted Dec 27, 2012, 7:13 PM by Prep Experts
Once upon a time I was a novice prepper and there are days that I still feel that way.  Having chosen the prepper lifestyle, I always find myself in search of that next greatest thing – whether it is a piece of gear, a new type of freeze dried food, a fabulous new prepping book or a DIY survival skill.  No matter what it is, there always seems to be something out there to capture my attention.
While I do believe that is it worthwhile to be looking forward, it is also good to reflect on past prepping mistakes, to learn from them, and to move forward with a new sense of resolve.   Today I am going to share some common prepper mistakes.  Many of these – especially those at the top of the list – I have made myself.  Others – through luck or planning – I have managed to avoid.
Whatever your personal situation, take some time to review this list and if you find an area where you are remiss, consider the past a learning experience and do what I do – make adjustments and move forward.
