not just food

When most people hear the word prepping, the thing that seems to spring to mind immediately is food; understandably so, it's a cornerstone of prepping along with water and shelter.

Prepping covers many other aspects of life, though, which will enable you to hopefully thrive, rather than merely survive.  Having a good range of skills and a willingness to learn new ones is important.

Here's a few non-food preps that can be done:

cleaning stuff

health and hygiene

seeds and gardening equipment

preserving equipment

non-electric appliances

medicines

books

cooking facilities

fuels

reading and research

bug out bag

important documents sorted, filed, to hand

lighting

wind-up/solar chargers

finding like-minded communities/individuals you can trust

self defence

home security

household textiles

learning new skills

knowing how to use what you have before it's needed

communications

There are no doubt more, but it's a reasonable list to start off with, or to use as a reminder.  I'll do a post on the skills I consider to be useful for preppers.
