Poll Results and a New Poll

Our last poll, how much time do you spend on preparedness each week? garnered the following answers:
  • Minutes a day (13 people/28%)
  • An hour or more (10 people/22%)
  • Maybe one or two preparedness projects a week (14 people/31%)
  • Hours each day (7 people/15%)
  • Never (1 person/2%)

The good news is that people are preparing! No matter how you do it--a little each day or by tackling a project or two each week--adding to your preparedness skills, abilities, knowledge, and stocks will put you in good stead when the worst happens. I'm guessing the people who spend hours a day on preparedness either do so as their work or as their lifestyle (sustainable living folks who can manage a solar system, work in the garden, and repair their homes as a part of their daily activities). No matter how much time you spend on preparedness, every little bit helps!

P.S. Be sure to take our new poll, and email in those poll ideas (I'm running out of questions...)


  1. Drip. Drip. Drip.

    Each small drop does not seem like much. But taken over the course of a year, two years, five years - and it is a flood of preparedness.

  2. Hi,
    I was going to take your poll on food preps, but didn't see a category that I fit in. I buy in bulk (25lb bags) and store in mylar bags inside of 5 gallon buckets. I also grow a large vegetable garden which I can or freeze the excess from that each year.

    I enjoy your blog :-)

  3. A poll idea. What area of your preps is least developed? This should help people find weaknesses in their planning.
