No one knows WHAT it will be. <br /><br />It could be a natural disaster or a medical pandemic. Financial system collapse or <br />bioterrorism. Governmental shutdowns or societal breakdowns. The media is full of <br />possible threats, and they seem to be coming at us from all sides these days.<br /><br />No one knows WHEN it will be. <br /><br />It might be today, or tomorrow. Next week or next month. Next year ... or maybe never. <br /><br />But do you want to take a chance on "maybe never"?<br /><br />Survival prepping is about preparing for the worst. It's about making sure you and <br />your family are safe, no matter what the world throws at you.<br /><br />Most of us "survivalist preppers" are normal people. We're your neighbors, your <br />co-workers, and your friends. You see us at our kid's soccer games, or at the <br />neighborhood movie theater, or at your local restaurant. You see us at work and <br />at church. You see us out walking in the neighborhood or exercising down at the gym.<br /><br />Prepping today isn't for weird nutcases. It's for everyone.<br /><br />The books in this series are written for "ordinary folks" who want to get started on <br />survival prepping. If you are already an experienced prepper, these books might be a <br />good refresher. But they are really written for the average Jane and Joe to get started <br />on survival prepping. <br /><br />If you are ready to take those first few steps on the prepper path, these books will help <br />you ensure your family survives, and maybe even thrives, should a disaster strike.<br /><br />Here in a single volume are the first three books in the The New Survival Prepper Guide <br />series. Included in this ready referernce are:<br /><br />Book 1 – Hunkering Down: Prepping to Survive in Your Home During a Natural Disaster<br /><br />Book 2 – Get Out Of Dodge! Prepping to Leave Your Home and Bug Out During A Disaster<br /><br />Book 3 – Sealing Yourself In: Prepping for Bioterrorism, Chemical Disasters, and Pandemics<br />

<p>The best-selling phenomenon from Japan that shows us a minimalist life is a happy life.</p><br /><p>Fumio Sasaki is not an enlightened minimalism expert or organizing guru like Marie Kondo—he’s just a regular guy who was stressed out and constantly comparing himself to others, until one day he decided to change his life by saying goodbye to everything he didn’t absolutely need. The effects were remarkable: Sasaki gained true freedom, new focus, and a real sense of gratitude for everything around him. In <em>Goodbye, Things</em> Sasaki modestly shares his personal minimalist experience, offering specific tips on the minimizing process and revealing how the new minimalist movement can not only transform your space but truly enrich your life. The benefits of a minimalist life can be realized by anyone, and Sasaki’s humble vision of true happiness will open your eyes to minimalism’s potential.</p>
