Being Prepared With PDF's

Recommended Posts

Most of these are not originally mine! I got them off of the Internet. Some of them I put in a Word document then edited them down and made back into a PDF to save space when printing. So, a couple of them might be repeats. I’m sure mistakes were made. Sorry. 


There are two ways to view them. One way is to hit the “open” option on the pop-up that will appear at the bottom of the screen.


The other way, which I prefer, is to hit the “save as” button and send it to your desktop or documents folder. That way you will always have them for your own personal use without reading them online. Also by doing it that way you may copy/paste to a Word document and whittle them down to just the information you want and print.  


Notice the security scan before they open. They were all virus free when I posted them.  


The number beside them is to indicate how many pages are in the PDF. It helped me to keep track of the ones I wanted to print out.


These are from my personal stash and have helped me stay focused. I hope someone will find something useful from a few of them.

That will be fine TheCG! I tried to post them in three separate folders but it wouldn't let me post them that way. Some people (me) can't seem to open some zipped files, but for those that can it would be great. I have mine all stored in a regular folder in my documents.

But wait there's more!


Here are a couple of websites that have a lot of good lists too:




I have Microsoft Office Professional so I'm not sure if this works on anything else but...

Here is how I converted a Word doc to a PDF:


Open a Word document

Click on file

Click on save and send

Click on PDF/XPS

Click to desktop

Click on publish.


I have these instructions printed out and have to read them EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. that I need to convert a Word document. Sigh. Every time.

Bumping this up. This is what Mrs. S is about. I have had to turn off the news and avoid social media and focus on me and mine. I can't spend my energy hashing out if mask should be worn or if people should get the jab. These are grown *** adults they can make their own decision. You do you and I will do me. I won't hold it against you if you get the jab if you don't hold it against me if I don't and vice versa. I am sick to my stomach over the middle east mess. My heart is broken for my oldest and youngest. They served for a while over the past 20 years. They are not taking this well. So no news here its more for our sanity than anything else. So I have put all my energy into getting ready for what ever may come our way. No just by stocking food but strengthening my faith and biblical knowledge. So here's to Mrs S for playing a big part of that.

Hummm. I clicked on it and it opened fine?  


I tried to copy/paste the page here but its in a chart form and it all runs together like this:


72 hour kits Replace clothes family members have outgrown Check and replace diapers Check food expiration dates and replace Check to see if you are missing supplies Do you have cash in small bills Lighting/Power Locate flashlights Check batteries in all flashlights Charge any solar powered battery packs Charge all your electronic devices and keep them charged just in case you lose power Get solar outdoor lights, you can use olive oil in jars with wicks as well Pick up a solar phone charger then you will still have power for your cell phone If you have to use a gas powered generator, make sure to have a little extra fuel on hand; just be very careful where you put it, and be mindful of your local laws on how much you can have on hand at one time Water Fill all your water containers Consider filling your waterbob or plug your bath tub and fill it out Consider filling big rubbermaid totes with water but MAKE sure they are covered if you have young children around Have a rain barrel to collect water you can use to flush toilets Family Communication/Planning Keep a list of emergency numbers handy, along with family members’ phone numbers. Write them down if you only have them stored in your phone Have an emergency escape plan from your home and make sure all family members know it and know where to meet. Make sure you have and/or locate your radio to stay connected Prepare an evacuation list of things you would need to grab in case you need to evacuate. Have an emergency binder with all important paperwork ready to go Take pictures of every room and closet in your house – it makes a huge difference if you have to deal with insurance companies Cooking If you have a gas grill, make sure you have a full tank of propane Check and replace other types of fuels If you need internet for instructions on how to use any of your powerless cooking tools go online and print the instructions now Make sure you have and/or locate a nonelectric can opener Food Have lots of nonperishables on hand Turn fridge and freezer to a colder setting If you have extra space in your freezer, take containers or ziploc bags full of water and fill in the extra space Make a few meals and snacks that will last without power Have enough food and litter for your pets Sanitation/Health Improvise an emergency toilet with a bucket lined with a bin bag and some sawdust or cat litter to cover the contents after each use Have your prescriptions filled Do your laundry now, so you have clothes that are dry and clean. Locate items necessary to do laundry by hand Find your glasses so you don’t have to deal with contacts in an emergency Other Have books and other non electric entertainment like board games ready for everyone Fill your gas tank Don’t forget to pay attention to fire prevention measures. Have your extinguisher handy "LAST MINUTE" PREPAREDNESS CHECKLIST (not literally last minute - but in case you know a disaster is coming in a day or two)  Brought to you by: FoodStorageMadeEasy.NET



Tonight I'll try to go through all of them to see if there are any dead links since these were posted.

I just opened all of them and they were fine. They aren't links to other sites. They are PDF's that I have downloaded. Not sure where to go from here. Tons of information up there though. Some I had forgotten about.

Super info.  I need to read it and a lot more.  Even though I was feeling prepared our life has changed so much I need to reassess.  AGAIN. Thanks.

Mother, I think that is where I have gone astray. Our life has changed but I was still trying to prep like I had small children. We have different needs now. I think each year we need to step back and reassess and see if maybe we don't need to prep one way but may prep another. We need to adjust our preps for health and age changes. I mean You are not going to stock a ton of diapers and bottles if there are no small children. Especially if child bearing years are long since passed. Priorities! that is the name of the game.

MTTB,  the last couple of years has been extremely challenging and eye opening for us here. I definitely have had to do a lot of rethinking preps.  Prioritizing is the perfect word.  I dug through papers and old computer files (old CD’s and even old old small square floppies ! ) (yes I do still have an old operating computer that reads them. 🧐) to find some of the lists I used years ago to organize my preps and was amazed to find so much had changed.  Not just with our abilities and needs but with modern preps we can find now compared to even just twenty years ago. Yet so much has stayed the same as well.  Now comes the hard part, paring away the unnecessary and adding what we need now.

Jeepers. These PDF’s are great.  So far they are opening fine.  I am finding some duplicates of ones I already had but a whole lot more I didn’t have and can really use.  I haven’t tried saving any yet as I’m hoping to print out as much as possible to have a hard copy as well as put it on jump drives in case of internet or electrical failure.  I need a new printer that is easy on ink, I need paper, more plastic sleeve covers, more time, and lots more energy.  The use of both hands would help too but I’m not waiting for that to get started.  

:sSig_thankyou: for the work you put into this and for sharing it.  :hug3:

Mother, you are welcome. I got most of the info online and copy/pasted onto a Word doc. That way I could take out the fluff to condense them down for easier printing to save on paper and ink. Then made them into a PDF. I got some of those thin plastic sheet covers similar to these and some binders and have all the info stored away as a printed copy. Also on a thumb drive.   Amazon.com : 400 Sheet Protectors, 11 Hole Lightweight Binder Sleeves, Designed to Protect Frequently Used 8.5 x 11 Papers, Acid and PVC Free Page Protector, Clear Plastic Design, 9.25 x 11.25 Top Loaded, 400 ct : Office Products


I got seven 1-1/2 inch binders labeled for different categories. OCD can sometimes work to my advantage. I did the same thing with quilt patterns.

I have been submerged in these for hours!  Just what I needed to get me thinking differently!  Or should I say getting my priorities straight.  Focusing on how we need to be prepared now for this stage in our journey.  Realizing that knowing what we need to prepare for is important but not as important as being prepared in a way that is doable in a variety of situations, even just life ones. 

These PDFs are like a trip through down to earth prepping.  What a great collection, Jeepers.

I especially loved the,,,,   “500+ camping recipes!!!”!!   So many of them can be used to make stock up lists that will actually make easy to prepare meals with alternative cooking methods. Some are backpacking meals that would fit nicely in bug-out-bags.  

The freezer meal ones are just what we need at this point.  I especially liked the Feed The Hungry ones.  There’s even several that are setup to make multiple meals.  

The LDS ones are great too.  I’ve gone into a dozen or more PDFs and already am starting to see ideas that would work for us here.  

I'm wondering if there might be hard copies out there of some of these.  Pretty sure there should be LDS books?  I, too, have printed copies in plastic sleeves in binders of lots of info but I can see I need more.:coffeescreen::reading:

Everything opened fine for me.  I have some of those. Great resources.  Will need to go back to check out the ones I don't have when I have more time. Right now I am mostly just reading up a little bit to see what I have missed this passed week or so. Things are about to get even more crazy around here, but I will get it all done and have my house back together again with hopefully better storage.

I've been working on a 'Master List' for myself for the past couple of years. It's by no means a complete list but something I've been adding to a little bit at a time as an idea strikes me. Since I'm so scattered, I figured one list that I can mark items off would help keep me focused. I think it's time to wrap it up and move on. When I get it finished, if anyone wants to look at it, I'd be glad to post it. It isn't food related. Mostly household items.

I put this under the What Did You Do To Prep This Week thread in RURR but I'll put it here too......in case folks are planning [someday] to print some of the lists on PAPER....






PAPER .....printing paper, not just T.P. is getting short .....according to this report.

If it makes anybody feel better, I just ordered 4 8-ream boxes of paper from Staples on sale today for work, so it probably hasn’t hit the standard printer paper yet.

I got two boxes of paper when Ohio had their no sales tax weekend last month. It wasn't on sale though.  


Toilet paper shortage, paper towel shortage, copy paper shortage, lumber shortage, drought, too much rain, too hot, forest fires, no truckers... See a pattern. Maybe we need to start a tree farm.  One of my cousin's ex-husbands had a Christmas tree farm. It was very lucrative!

With the shipping issues and the possibility that there may not be anything to put under the tree, I wonder how many people will still be buying one this year.
