The economic disaster that’s bound to hit the US by the end of 2016 seems to be inevitable. The failed reforms and attempts for financial stabilization, the uncontainableand ever-growing national debt, the instability of the banking systems, the rising levels of poverty andthe struggles of the local industries are all factors that will contribute decisively to the downfall of the US economy. The local economy is already fragile and shaken by so many prior events, that the blow that’s about to come will sure be the last it can handle. Like an injured warrior, it can only take so much before it draws its final breath. Things will get messy pretty fast andchaos will take control little by little as resources run out and authorities lose their power. Like I’ve said so many times before, society will revert to a more primal state of being, and the catastrophes will bring out the best and worst in people, like in any post-apocalyptic story. It’s because of what’s about to follow in the not-so-distant future that you must take all the necessary precautions, and fast.

But if you aren’t trusting of certain institutions when it comes to your life savings, there are other methods of keeping your money and valuables safe. The first things to do, is to turn a portion of your savings into solid goods, like gold and maybe silver. In a SHTF scenario, as the economy crumbles, monetary value will eventually lose its power. Having something solid to trade like a precious metal would be excellent in a crisis situation. Also, you don’t have to resort to professionals for safekeeping, you can always stash you valuables and life savings in a secret and hardly accessible spot. Just make sure not to many people now about it (the fewer the better) and the best way to do it is to never keep your eggs in one basket. Having several hiding places (safes, false planks in the floor, hidden drawers etc.) will make it less likely for burglars or home invaders to get their hands on everything you have.

Provisions

Food and water should be the first thing you should worry about. Make as many provisions as you can and store them properly. There are plenty of canned, dried or smoked goods available on the mark
et that will last a long time in storage, but if you’re the adventurous type, you can also make these yourselves. Make sure your daily meals for survival purposes are nutritious enough and that you have a properly cool, dry and clean storage space. If fresh food is your thing, you can also go hunting and grow your very own DIY vegetable garden, just take some time to practice and you’ll be more than ready when SHTF. There are more ways you can get water. Storing it is an option, sure, just get some clean and eco-friendly containers. Just make sure to filter it properly first. But an even better idea would be to dig your own well or to get your hands on a revolutionary water producing system that draws clean, fresh water from moisture. Gasoline (and fuel in general) is also a great thing to store for dark days.provisions prepperProtection

You’re wellbeing will be jeopardy in a crisis scenario. You must look out for yourself and your possessions. Be wary of strangers and keep a close eye on your friends as well. You can pick up a self-defense class to improve your fighting skills. Make your house an impenetrable fortress by installing a security system and reinforce your doors and windows if you have to. A gun is more than welcome during difficult times. A proper riffle with a fairly good scope will allow you to scout your perimeter for potential intruders, but also for hunting if food will become a problem. You can also get an easily concealable handgun and keep it on you all the time; you’ll never know when you might need it. Having a knife close by and all sorts of stuff (baseball bats, brass knuckles, beat sticks etc.) all over the house will come in handy, should you ever have to fight off home intruders. A guard dog will increase the levels of protection for you and your family tremendously, just do a little research on dog breeds first.
