As homesteaders and preppers, we like to have an ample supply of things just in case. Food, water, medical supplies, and things to keep in our bug-out bags are all very important to us. But how do you keep track of it all? To be honest, I hadn’t been keeping any records at all until I got my hands on a copy of The Preparedness Planner.
Some of my friends use spreadsheets on their computer to keep track of their preps. I have asked them many times, “what happens if the power goes out?” Sure, your laptop battery may last a couple of hours, and your cell phone longer than that, but eventually they will poop-out, too.
The Preparedness Planner is a printable ebook that has ways to help you keep track of your preps – from food storage and seed saving to bug-out bags and medical supplies. It has multiple pages explaining in detail how to use all of the forms in the book to keep track of and build on your preps. If you’re just getting started amassing your supplies, this is a great jumping-off point. If you’re a seasoned prepper, this is an excellent way to take stock of what you have, and it may even include some things you hadn’t thought of before.
The book also contains balance sheets where you can list your inventory and keep tallies on it as you use and rotate your stock. Instead of having to count everything from month to month, you just need to mark how many you use each month, and replenish as you go to maintain your ideal amount of supplies.
For those of you with pets, there’s even a section to keep track of your pet supplies!
In the food storage section, for example, along with the balance sheets, there is a fairly comprehensive list of basic foods to be stored. Pick what you’d like, make yourself a goal, and keep count of what you have. Things like beans are in their own category due to the extensive list of beans and legumes one might have. When you get to canned goods, there are multiple categories encompassing meats, fruits, vegetables and soups.
There is plenty of room in each section to add more entries, so you can customize this book as you see fit.
I would recommend printing the informative sections of the book for reference for you and your family, then read it thoroughly. Some of it may be common sense, but other parts might have information you’re not already thinking about. You’ll learn how to better prep and get organized this way.
Then, print the forms in the book. Make additional copies where you need to, and always keep 3-4 months worth of blank pages around in case something happens and the power were to go out. You would still have blank pages to use.
After you’ve used the forms for a few months, you will begin to notice a trend on the things you use. You’ll learn when you need to buy, and how much you can buy at a time without overloading your budget all at once.
