My best friends ma did rentals. I think he counted 18 at one time but yeah. He had to help her clean them when they moved out and some of the storys he tells me make me gag.
One house he said had kitchen maggots. Talk about gross and unhealthy

Wyo, slow but steady wins the race. Having enough canned food for a few days or a coupla weeks is just basic common sense.

After that, you don't need to spend alot of money quickly but you do need to learn a little, plan, and act. Put it this way -- if you ate all-storeable food and bought twice as much as you have till now, it would take a year to have a year's supply of food.

Don't waste time and money: read a bit, plan your work and work your plan.

Plan for different things... pick one like natural disaster (kick ass storm came through, took no prisoners). Food for a week or more? How ya gonna cook it? How you gonna see what youre cooking? Where you gonna sleep? How are you gonna get news that help is on the way? How are you gonna charge your cell phone and check facebook? Kidding. Pick one thing and start examining it from every angle...

There are a few books on prepping and sites with stickies you should read. But look at the basics: food and water, clothing, shelter, health, security. Short, intermediate, and long term.

I would make suggestions for some but you need to know a little more (I say that not to be mean because you and the Mrs. have already learned the most critical lesson), there are different opinions and options, and I'm relatively new here, so...

Im a firm believer that somethings happening and I refuse to be a victim.
this just made my day!
So is she fortifying the kitchen?

Think of prepping a bit differently.

If they have a 25% off sale on TP, what happens if you buy 6 months worth? Three months from now, they do the sale again, buy another six months worth. Suddenly you have 9 months worth. Do this on everything you normally buy, only get it on sale, buy several months worth at a time. Over a year or two, you'll begin to look like "real preppers" Best part, you're saving money!
