Survival Diva here. Recently, I had a huge decision to make; whether to join a group of preppers in my small community, or to remain anonymous. It happened by accident. I was at a gas station/feed store (small community retailers in my area tend to be multi-purpose) and was surprised to see they sold food storage buckets and a few other preparedness related items. Talking to the owner, the conversation landed on prepping. I’d lived in the area for four years, and had no clue there was a group of folks who thought like I did. In fact, up until that moment, I felt like I was the only one prepping—folks around here keep to themselves… politics, prepping; you name it!

It was both a relief and a dilemma when I was invited to join the group. I didn’t know these people. They didn’t know me. So, what would keep a rogue member of the group from just dropping by my cabin someday to help themselves to what had taken years of doing without to accumulate? Hey, prepping for 23 is a HUGE, long term commitment! And should someone have ulterior motives , it would take another decade or so to build my preparedness cache back up…all the storage food, canned goods, canning supplies, wheat mill, water filter, manual well pump, tree-felling equipment, tools, toilet paper (it takes up an entire loft to store all that toilet paper!), medical supplies…and on, and on.

I also had to put into the equation that I’m gone from my cabin more than I would like to be. Even though I installed beefed up doors to the cabin and the storage shed which has no less than three heavy-duty padlocks, held by a chain so thick I’ve wondered if it wasn’t overkill, which is attached to eye bolts that were secured through the substructure, sheer nerve and bolt cutters could get the job done. Or for those with imagination, taking a chain saw to the walls would get them in and out in no time.

Welcome to this week’s Survive The Coming Collapse newsletter, brought to you by Free Survival Cheat Sheets.com, a set of quick, actionable, and free preparedness and survival tips and tricks from the The Fastest Way To Prepare course.

Survival Diva here with some food for thought about children’s needs during a crisis of any length. Those of you without children might want to spend a little time here to pick up a few bartering ideas, or in case a relative with children finds their way to your door. Yes, we may tell ourselves that we’ll turn uninvited relatives away…but looking into the eyes of a child may have you changing your mind.

Children’s needs are much different than they are for adults and they change throughout the different stages of their development. Because of this, I’ve broken up this post in two sections: Children’s Needs and Infant’s Needs.

Before we get started, I should mention I have not mentioned universal and fundamental issues like heating, lighting, or CPR training because they are pivotal for survival, and I assume these needs have already been arranged for.

If there was an instruction manual that came with children, I’m convinced it should start with their laundry needs. Anyone who is a parent or has cared for children can tell you if there’s a mud puddle within 10 miles of their vicinity, kids will find it! To combat this, I’ve posted below an easy to make recipe for homemade laundry soap the Duggar family (“19 Kids And Counting” on TLC) kindly posts for free. I’d suggest getting a good amount of the ingredients listed in their recipe so you’ll have it on hand when you really need it. And don’t forget a wash tub (Tuff Stuff sells a 15-gallon size tub for around $22.50), a hand agitator (They’re available at Lehman’s for around $20), clothesline, clothes pens and an industrial-size wringer mop bucket to expel excess water from clothing before hanging on the clothesline.
