5 Critical Items Every Emergency Prepper Needs to Store

It's not necessary to be a dedicated "emergency prepper" to appreciate the value of planning ahead. Planning is an excellent idea whether you're preparing for a severe winter storm, a foreign invasion, a civil revolt, or an economic collapse. Planning should include considering how you will feed your family and yourself in the event that food becomes limited or you are unable to leave your home.

Despite the fact that we live in a land of plenty, we still need to be ready because anything can happen. If you've never planned before, start with a 3-day supply of food. If you want additional security, you can increase your supply a little bit each month. No matter how invisible you may feel, setting aside a little room in your house, like a closet, for storing some food is a good idea. Here are five foods that we found to be extremely, extremely long-lasting.
