5 Simple Things Every Homesteader Needs
Just like in the computer and tech world, it’s all too easy to get caught up in the latest “must have” gadgets in the prepping and homesteading world. When I first read this article over at A Farmish Kind of Life I was reminded of two old sayings, K.I.S.S (keep it simple stupid) and “don’t overlook the obvious, they’re there for a reason”. While these items are simple, every homesteader and prepper should have plenty of them all on hand.
Be sure and read their article but here’s the list:
- Pocket Knife
- Cable ties (or zip ties)
That last one may surprise you, but as the author points out, cable ties are the new bailing twine your forefathers used to use.
Sure its a short and simple list, but just think how often they are used on a homestead or in prepping.
And to go with this post, have a look at my take on The 5 Overrated Survival Items – Or Are They?
As I always like to say, in this survival, prepping, homesteading and camping world, there is no one size fits all; it’s up to each individual to assess their own needs and prepare accordingly.
